Denture Repair may be recommended when the teeth of your denture are still in good condition and have not worn out in comparison to the denture base material. Denture repair is the process of replacing the entire acrylic denture base providing a stable denture without replacing the denture teeth. A denture repair for a denture may be required if your denture is old or is cracked. A denture repair is very similar to relining, the difference being that a rebase replaces all the pink-acrylic denture base material instead of just the lining.
Reasons for the denture repair procedure may include:
- Broken or damaged denture
- Weakened or old pink denture base
- Replacement of an immediate denture
A variety of circumstances can lead to a damaged denture and should be addressed immediately. Repairs restore a fractured or damaged denture close to its original condition. Orbis Dental Group can often provide denture repair procedures on a same-day basis. Dr. Austin or Dr. Hachem will advise you of the condition of your denture and will recommend steps needed in preventing further breakage.
