Denture Repair Q & A

Why would I need denture repairs?

Just like your natural teeth, dentures require regular maintenance and repairs to remain durable for as long as possible. There are many reasons why you need denture repair, such as:

  • Cracked tooth
  • Chipped tooth
  • Broken tooth
  • Missing tooth
  • Gum damage

It’s important to contact Berlanga Dentures the moment you experience a denture emergency. In many cases, these repairs are completed the same day you bring your dentures into the office.

What causes denture damage?

One of the main reasons dentures require repairs is poor fit. As you speak, chew, laugh, and move your mouth, stress is put on your dentures. Without a perfect fit, certain teeth absorb more impact than others, leading to cracks and breaks in your dentures.

If you have poor-fitting dentures, the stress in your mouth ultimately worsens over time. That’s why it’s important to schedule an appointment with Berlanga Dentures if your dentures don’t feel right.

Normal wear and tear also impact the metal clasps on partial dentures. While there are home kits available for these repairs, they can end up causing further problems when used improperly. Fortunately, Berlanga Dentures offer high-quality, consistent repair results every time.

Many patients need repairs right away after accidentally dropping their dentures. While the experts at Berlanga Dentures stress the importance of handling your dentures properly (cleaning your dentures over a small bowl and plush towel limits your risk of dropping and breaking your dentures), they understand that accidents do happen. If you drop and break your dentures, schedule an appointment to come in right away.

Are denture repairs costly?

The most important thing to remember about denture repairs is that they are almost always cheaper than replacing your dentures. Much like your health, routine maintenance and repairs prevent more extensive, costly work down the road.

Repairing your dentures at the first sign of trouble keeps them strong and fitted to your smile. With proper care and regular repairs, your dentures can last 10 years or more.
