Denture Repair: Things You Need to Know

Denture Repair: Things You Need to Know

Dentures will allow you to smile, speak and eat comfortably, and you will no longer feel self-conscious in front of others or in social gatherings. Dentures can change your life, and you will notice an improvement in your mood, but you have to be careful because dentures can snap unexpectedly, and if this were to happen, you would have to repair it right away.
If you ever come across this problem, there are a few key pieces of information you have to be aware of regarding denture repairs, and the first is that the repair process will have to be done in a dental laboratory. Only a skilled technician can complete these repairs, and they will listen to the instructions given by your dentist. Your dentist will inspect your dentures thoroughly and will then provide the technician with details, and they will complete the repairs according to this information. There may be a few exceptions to this rule, but in most cases, dentures are repaired in dental labs.
Glue cannot be used to fix cracked dentures because this substance will not be able to withstand the chewing pressure that dentures must undergo. Glue is something that automatically comes to mind, but it’s not a solution, and this is true for superglue as well. You cannot fix broken dentures with this product because superglue will not bond well with your dentures and can damage them instead. This product can also cause your gums to become inflamed, and superglue also tastes awful, so it’s best to stay away from this option, regardless of how tempting it may be.
It is recommended that you have a spare set of dentures so that you can wear them while your other set is being repaired in the lab.
If your dentures need to be relined, the cost will vary, although it is generally affordable. The type of denture you have, the kind of relining you need and the location where you are getting the dental relining done are all factors that will affect the final cost. This process can be done at the clinic or in a laboratory.
If your dentures break, you have to call your dentist right away to schedule a repair appointment. If you have a spare set of dentures, start using them immediately and never try repairing your dentures on your own. Professional repairs are always necessary, so do not attempt doing this at home because you can cause even more damage while trying to fix them. Allowing a professional to do this will provide you with long-lasting results and a stress-free experience, so you should always turn to professional denture repair.
