REPAIRS

Over time, your mouth and dentures undergo inevitable changes. Dentures should be replaced every 5 to 7 years to restore optimum fit, function and appearance. In the meantime, if your dentures require a repair or relining, your First Impression Denturist can best advise you of the most suitable treatment plan.

 

Our Denturists can often offer same-day service for relines and repairs to minimize the amount of time you are without your dentures. Have your dentures reassessed with us at First Impression Denture Clinic. Contact us to book your denture repair or relining appointment.

REPAIRING SERVICES FOR YOUR DENTURES

 

  • Never attempt to repair or alter your dentures yourself. Improperly repaired dentures (with crazy glue, for example) will not last long and may cause irritation due to the poor fit and have adverse effect on your overall health.
  • Repairs may be required when breakage or damage occurs, when one or more teeth need to be added to an existing denture (due to tooth extraction), or because of wear and tear.
  • Often denture teeth and clasps can be added to existing partial dentures when natural teeth are lost.

A proper repair requires addition of new denture base (pink) material to the repair area and may require an intraoral impression by your Denturist prior to repair.

 

Most repairs can easily be done in one day. If your denture requires a repair, it may indicate underlying problems associated with the age of the denture, worn teeth or poor fit.

 

Our Denturists are the professionals who can repair a broken denture and best explain how to prevent further denture breakage from occurring. If you’re experiencing discomfort from a broken denture, please call us to schedule your denture repair as soon as possible.
