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.

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 experience with Hayven was a positive one. Everyone was so pleasant and reassuring. They take great care to get everything just right. I never had to wait more than 10 min. for my appointment. I would recommend them 100 percent. Thanks Hayven for everything.

Following dental surgery I had immediate dentures installed at another denture clinic. Unfortunately, right from the start, they were poorly fitting and despite many return visits, the problems continued and worsened. The final straw occurred when my top denture literally dropped out of my mouth when I was speaking. Because the dentures were so loose, I had been using dental adhesive on both the top and bottom but unfortunately the dentures released as soon as I started eating and soft food entered under both dentures. As a result, I was unable to eat regular food and was limited to very soft items, like eggs, soup, yogurt etc. I needed help and following much research and checking with various people, I was so fortunate to find Hayven Dentures where I spoke with Cherie, the business administrator, and made an appointment. Following a consultation with Hayes, I felt immediately at ease and very impressed with the length of time he spent checking and discussing my issue. I was very relieved when he identified that the main cause of my problems was because the denture bite was misaligned. He corrected the problem on the upper denture and adjusted the lower one to the point that using adhesive I can now eat proper food and my denture stays in place! I was also informed that Hayven Dentures install a temporary immediate denture following dental surgery and after 4 months the permanent dentures are fitted and installed, The denture clinic I originally went to did not offer this and unfortunately I was not aware of this option, therefore permanent dentures were installed. I sincerely wish I had been referred to Hayven Denture Clinic initially and had this happened, I know I could have been spared a lot of the problems, money, stress and time spent returning weekly to the other clinic. I am so grateful and thankful to have found Hayven Denture Clinic and Hayes and I plan to have further work done there and I am very happy and confident in recommending them.

I had partial dentures made 3 years ago. The staff at Hayven were wonderful from the initial phone call all the way to the creation of dentures. They were courteous, caring and made you feel at ease and comfortable. The dentures have been wonderful. I have had 2 annual follow ups since then at no charge. I would not go anywhere else.
