Same Day Denture Repair
At Elite Dental we custom design each set of dentures or dental implant supported dentures in our IN HOUSE DENTURE LAB here in Lakewood, CO. Over time, your dentures will become stained, worn or even broken. And no matter how careful you may be when handling your dentures, they may drop and break. At Elite Dental, we understand how frustrating and inconvenient it can be to live without your dentures, which is why our dentists and team offer same-day denture repair in Lakewood, Colorado.
Your gum tissues will change over time, causing your denture to become loose. To ensure that your dentures remain secure in your mouth and function properly, you should have them professionally relined.
There are several types of denture relines which our dentists may perform:
- Hard denture reline – All dentures should be hard relined every two years. This involves removing and replacing a layer of plastic from the interior surface so that it matches the new shape of your gum tissue.
- Soft denture reline – Soft denture relines are recommended for patients who are unable to wear ordinary dentures due to tender gums or sore spots. Soft denture relines involve replacing the interior lining of your denture with a pliable material. A soft reline will need to be replaced.
- Temporary reline – Temporary relines are used to help inflammation in your mouth subside so that your gums can return to a more normal state before we replace the denture or provide a soft or hard reline.
Denture rebasing is recommended when the base material is worn out, even if the teeth of the appliance are still in good condition. Our dentists will replace the entire base of your denture without replacing the teeth. Denture rebasing may be recommended when your denture is broken, damaged or weakened, or when you are replacing an immediate denture.
If your denture is damaged, schedule an appointment with our dentists immediately so that we can repair your appliance. We never want you to go without teeth for any length of time and strongly encourage you to contact our office as soon as possible.
