Even the best-made denture will require some maintenance from time to time, either because the mouth naturally changes shape over the years, which can affect the fit, or a prosthetic can be damaged in an accident. Whatever the situation might be, we have you covered here at The Denture Center! Our in-house lab enables us to provide same-day repairs and relines, meaning you have to spend minimal time without your teeth and can walk out of our dental office with a prosthetic that looks and fits like new. Does your denture need a little TLC? If so, give us a call today to experience the best.
One of the most common issues we see is a denture that has been dropped and broken, most often while someone was trying to clean it. This is why we recommend putting a towel down whenever you take your denture out above a hard surface! Whether your prosthetic has a small crack or a tooth has been knocked loose, we can repair it the same day to restore its strength and stability. If necessary, we may recommend getting a completely new denture if your current prosthetic is beyond point of repair.
When the jawbone isn’t being supported by natural teeth, it gradually shrinks as the years go by, and this can change the general shape of the bone that’s needed to hold dentures in place. This can create extra space that causes a prosthetic that used to fit well to become loose and unstable. That’s why we recommend getting a denture relined at least every one to two years, which we can do here in our lab the same day.
Do you have a hard denture that places a lot of stress on your gums whenever you chew? Older dentures can be very punishing for sensitive gum tissues not used to supporting biting forces, but we can relieve this discomfort using a soft liner. This extra cushion cannot only help a denture fit better, but feel much better during normal functions as well. If your denture creates a lot of oral irritation right now, you won’t believe the difference a soft liner can make!
Whether your dentures were lost while in transit, got misplaced, or suffered damaged while being cleaned, we’re more than ready to help you repair and replace them if necessary. In the event your denture is lost or broken, Dr. Patel wants you to know what you should do next as well as how The Denture Center can provide additional options moving forward. After all, no patient should have to live without a reliable denture!
