If you are local to Blenheim and require denture repair, or have existing dentures that are over five years old, you will find it worth taking a few minutes for a free no obligation consultation with us. We can review your dentures for damage or re-fitting, and quickly assess broken, worn or ill-fitting dentures to determine whether you are a candidate for a rebase, reline or repair, rather than replacement.
Forms of denture repair
With denture base material worn, but denture teeth in good condition, the recommended denture repair is denture re-basing. A secure denture is achieved by using the current denture teeth and reconstructing a new base of acrylic denture material.
Denture fit can be improved with a denture reline process. By adding new acrylic base material to the tissue side of a denture, better fit is achieved.
Relining will not affect the appearance of your denture. Oral tissue resorption (shrinkage) often creates the need for relining of your denture. This shrinkage may be caused by:
- Loss of bone
- Loss of teeth
- Loss of weight
- Denture repairs
- Disease or illness
Can my damaged dentures be repaired?
In many cases, our expert denture specialists can restore your existing or cracked denture to its original state. Several causes can require denture repairs: chipping or breaking, general wear and tear, or adding one or two more teeth to an existing denture after a tooth extraction.
