Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. At Summit Denture Clinic, dentures are custom fabricated and fit snugly over the gums. Dentures can improve one’s appearance, as well as one’s ability to chew and speak. Dentures help to prevent bone loss, as well. When dentures break or become damaged, it can be hard to wear them. This is why denture repair is so necessary. Denture repairs can often make you feel more confident about your smile and ready to take on the day.

How Are Dentures Made?

Denture materials are made from several different materials. Generally, dentures are made out of an acrylic base, with natural-looking teeth made from porcelain or acrylic. The base of the denture is shaped to fit your mouth, and the teeth portions are fitted into the base. Denture teeth can be specially shaded to match your natural teeth.

While your natural teeth are firmly anchored to your jawbones, your dentures just sit on the gums. Over time, this can cause the jawbone to deteriorate, altering the shape of your mouth and affecting your appearance. That’s why it’s important to make sure to have your dentures refitted periodically to ensure the optimal fit.

Common Signs of Denture Problems

Your dentures may feel loose if they no longer fit tightly against your gums. Your gums may also feel tender and appear reddened, which is a sign that they may be irritated. The discomfort will likely lead to difficulty chewing, which can cause you to favor softer foods, such as bread or soft fruits. You may also not feel like smiling or talking, which can make you appear more self-conscious.

When Is Denture Repair Necessary?

If you are having a problem with your dentures, you should seek repair right away. Many people do not realize that dentures require the same care as natural teeth, and without proper care, they can become damaged. A damaged denture can cause discomfort.

Most damage can be fixed with an adjustment. If you break a denture, you will need to have it repaired. If the crack is small, we may be able to repair it. If the crack is large, we may have to completely replace the denture. Dentures are fragile, and over time, they can become damaged. With regular dental exams and cleanings, your dentures can be properly and regularly maintained.

Dental examination

Your dentist will assess the health of your teeth and gums and review your medical history to ensure any underlying medical conditions are not preventing you from safely wearing a set of new dentures.

Fabrication of dentures

Your dentist will make a model of your teeth and send this to a lab where your custom-made dentures are constructed according to this model.

Fitting the dentures

Once complete, you will return to the dentist’s office to have your final fitting and adjustments as needed. With proper care and regular checkups, your new dentures can last for many years.

Caring for the dentures

If you take good care of your dentures as well as brush your gums and tongue twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush, your dentures should last for many years.

Our practice offers both complete and partial dentures, depending on your needs. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some of the natural teeth are still present.
