Types of Denture Repair

When it comes to becoming a denture wearer, there is always the knowledge that they could become damaged, break or become loose-fitting naturally over time. It is important that patients remember to have a plan of action ready, thought out and in place for if a denture repair does need to happen.

A person can be as careful as possible and still run into trouble. Even if you have cleaned your dentures a hundred times, it is still possible that one drop can cause a fracture, one of the false teeth could become loose or break off or any number of other issues.

However, knowing the steps to take to get the denture repair you need is vital. The most important thing to remember is to never use any of the at-home denture repair kits that can be bought in stores. Although these are marketed to seem to be easy for someone to fix a pair of dentures, the risk factor is just too high for the wearers' denture. Having a trained professional look at the teeth and ensure the right method is used and the dentures are not broken or fractured more.

The main types of denture repair

In this article, we are going to cover the main types of denture repair and what you need to know before scheduling your visit with your dentist.

Denture realigning

Sometimes denture wearers may notice that things just are not as snug and fitted as they once were. Although this can be startling to notice, there is a common procedure that can be completed to fix the issues.

Denture realigning can help fix the dentures fit and ensure that they do not slide or become loose during the day.

Denture rebase

The pink part of a pair of dentures is the most important aspect of the device. They hold the teeth in place and fit over a person's gums when the dentures are positioned in the mouth. From time to time, it is important to get what is called a denture rebase.

When a denture rebase is done, the teeth are placed in a completely new pink base for the teeth to stay in the best shape possible. When a person has a rebasing done, they will notice the difference from day one.

Denture adjustment

One of the most annoying things that can happen with dentures is when they need an adjustment. If there are spots in the mouth that the dentures are causing to be sore, then it is typically from the dentures rubbing on the gums. Having a denture adjustment at your dentist is the best thing you can do to fix the issue and have great fitting dentures again.
