Denturist in St. Catharines & Niagara Region
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.
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.
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.
You may need your denture repaired if:
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.
