What Are Repairs for Dentures?

Dentures allow you to take part in social settings confidently. They’re a cost-effective solution to restoring your chewing and speaking abilities.

However, they don't last forever. They can wear out over time or break and get damaged. The good news is that they can be repaired.

Do you need urgent denture repair services in St. Catharines, Ontario? We're happy to help.

What is denture repair?

Denture emergencies can occur at any time. Though these devices involve specialized processing, they’re not immune to breakage.

Broken dentures must be restored or fixed as soon as possible. Dentures are repaired by a dental technician at the dental laboratory. But first, your dentist or denturist will examine the device and provide detailed instructions to the technician.

We’re pleased to inform you that we have our own denture repair and relining laboratory at Hayven Dentures in St. Catharines, ON.

How does denture repair work?

If it’s a new denture, your denturist will make adjustments until it fits perfectly.

The jawbone may have shrunk or changed in size while your dentures are being fabricated. It’s possible for your device to need adjustments until you feel comfortable wearing it.

If your denture is broken, the repair depends on the extent of the damage. Missing or broken pieces may still be replaced. The technician may need the original form of your denture to create a mold.

Pieces of a broken denture or a denture split in half can also be put back together. Otherwise, you may need a new impression. The denture can also be strengthened further by connecting the broken pieces with a small metal rod before they’re glued together.

Signs you need your denture repaired

You may need your denture repaired if:

  • There are cracks or breaks in your device.
  • The metal framework or clasps of your partial denture are broken.
  • You want a new artificial tooth or teeth added to your existing denture.
  • It no longer fits comfortably.

If your denture has become loose, it’s important to get it relined to prevent future damage. Poor-fitting dentures can lead to an uneven distribution of bite forces in the mouth.

Request your complimentary consultation for denture repair in St. Catharines, ON. Our denture repair specialists will assess your device and educate you on potential options.

A reline involves adding a permanent liner to the underside of the denture. This improves its fit and the wearer’s comfort.

A rebase, on the other hand, is similar to a reline. But, here, we replace the denture acrylic because keeping the old one can lead to bacterial growth.

The cost of relines and rebases depends on the type of repair you need, the denture material, and where the reline will be performed.

A reline is performed every 2-3 years to keep the denture from moving and affecting your bite.

If you had an immediate denture placed immediately after tooth extraction, you may require it after the first year.

Loose or unstable dentures can be a sign it’s time for a reline or rebase. If the dentures are still in good condition, you may only need a reline to close the gaps between your gums and denture.

Dentures must be repaired by a professional because doing it on your own may cause more damage to your device.

Super glue or any adhesive can be toxic and dangerous when applied to oral devices. Your denture must be repaired using appropriate materials that are safe and long-lasting. Often, repairs can be completed in one day, and you can have your denture back on the same day.

Professional denture repairs ensure a hassle-free experience and long-lasting results. You won’t have to go without a tooth for long.

The jaw bone can shrink due to a missing tooth or teeth. The acrylic in your dentures is made to fit your gums tightly. But, as the jawbone shrinks further, the denture may loosen and feel uncomfortable.

If the dentures continue to slide and move each time you wear them, they may crack or get fractured and affect your bite. Pressure due to uneven bite forces can damage the denture and compromise your oral health.

My parents needed new dentures. After a lot of research, we decided to go ahead with Hayven Dentures. I am so happy we did business with them. They were detailed and patient enough to make the dentures comfortable for you to wear. This is the third time I have made dentures for my parents and the ones with Hayven was my best experience. Thank you to Hayes, Judy and Cherie for all your help!

I was recommended by my dentist to Hayden Dentures . I made an appointment and was quickly scheduled and was a very pleasant experience and the staff and owner were more than helpful and professional. My dentures were made and fitted with procession. They were very natural and I had to have them adjusted slightly and they made my appointment very quickly and was perfect. I would highly recommend this business and their staff , they exceptional and are genuinely a pleasure to deal with. Thank you for all your hard work.

First of all, I’d like to begin by saying the service is outstanding. Dr. Hayven and his staff are terrific. They take their time they have patience and they do great work. He is very thorough and doesn’t try to upsell he just sells you what you need he actually talked us out of the highest rate. He didn’t feel that my sister need it or would benefit from the best of the best so overall very pleased with everything. he tried to fix my sisterβ€˜s other set that she had made elsewhere where the job just doesn’t compare to what he did then the old set never fit from the get-go. She is a very complicated case has hardly any gums left so very difficult, but he managed to make it work. my sister and I thank you from the bottom of our heart for just caring so much it’s people like you who make a difference in our world πŸ’—
