Why A Good Denture Repair Clinic Is So Important

If you have dentures, you know how important it is to keep them clean and protected from damage. But, if the worst should befall you and you need to seek denture repair, then you’ll need to know where to find a good denture clinic, what makes a good denture clinic, and what the process will be for getting your dentures repaired.

What Are the Different Types of Dentures?

Before we dive into denture repair, let’s go over what the different types of dentures are.  All dentures are made from acrylic resin – often machine printed to exact measurements and are supported by remaining hard and soft tissues in the gums. 

Complete Dentures 

Complete dentures are also called full dentures, these are top-and-bottom dentures that cover both the top and bottom jawline. They’re usually used in instances where people have lost all of their teeth due to an accident, or disease and decay. Though most dentists and surgeons will try to save at least some natural teeth, it is not always possible. 

The cost of dentures is usually quite high, thus for those who need them, complete dentures are often the most cost-effective option.

Partial Dentures 

Partial dentures are the most common type of dentures in use by denture repair clinics. Partial dentures are used when someone has lost a section of teeth – as sometimes happens in accidents and as a side-effect of disease. Partial dentures can also be easily removed for cleaning, are durable and don’t break as easily.

Partial dentures come in both fixed and removable forms, each having its own purpose and with different associated denture costs. Your denture clinic will be able to recommend which type would best suit you and your situation.

Implant Retained Dentures 

An ”overdenture”, as they are sometimes known is a type of denture that is held on top of your gums by a dental implant. These are expensive and require extensive surgery and an extensive healing time, however, they are custom-made and provide one of the most comfortable, natural fits for dentures.

Immediate Dentures 

The final most-common type of denture is the immediate denture, these are implanted immediately following emergency denture repairs. They are often a rough mock-up of your mouth’s shape and aren’t made to a custom fit. They can sometimes be uncomfortable and are often a stop-gap for a short period of time between the surgery and getting your own custom-fitting denture set – whether partial dentures or complete dentures.

What Can Cause Dentures to Break? 

Some common things that can cause denture breakage to occur include: 

  •   Improper Fit – One of the most common reasons why dentures break is that they’re improperly fitted – though a good denture clinic will always try to get it right, mistakes can be made. Improper fit can cause discomfort and soreness in the gums. It may also cause faster material wear-and-tear of the dentures.
  •   Dropping Your Dentures – We’ve all been there – accidentally dropped something and it broke – this can also be the case with your dentures, particularly if they’re older and already worn.
  •   Wear and Tear – If your dentures are aged, you may find that they’re starting to decay, and even certain ‘teeth’ of the denture may have started to fracture. Unfortunately, this may mean that sections of the denture may need to be replaced at a denture clinic. Faster wear and tear on your dentures can be caused by increased consumption of acidic food. So, avoid heavy consumption of acidic food if you have dentures! 

What Can A Denture Clinic Do In An Emergency? 

Let’s say that you have an unexpected denture break or fracture. Your local denture clinic may offer emergency denture repairs, depending on the severity of the damage. Unfortunately, you may have to be left with a pair of temporary dentures while they perform the denture repair. You may leave the clinic with a pair of immediate dentures. 

You should expect to pay a fair bit for the emergency denture repair. The cost of customised dentures isn’t cheap, and having to perform an emergency repair may require extra tools that aren’t in common use in your everyday operation of the denture clinic. 

What Makes a Good Denture Clinic? 

Finding a good denture clinic in a pinch can be challenging, but it is critical that you’re able to identify what makes a good denture clinic and begin consulting with them in an emergency. Be sure to thoroughly do your research before you call. 

Any good denture clinic should have a functional website and even a social media presence of some sort, with public testimonials – that’s probably where you should go first. Next, they should have a detailed explanation of their services and the technology they use to create the dentures (this technology should be able to be Google’d and be modern and up-to-date).

Your next step should be to visit the denture clinic. It must be a clean and sterile environment, just like you’d expect at your local dentist’s office. The staff should be knowledgeable, kind and conversational. You should get a good feeling from them that they’re competent and that you’re in good hands.

From my first phone call to Tomika explaining my situation with my teeth and how bad they were and that I didn't know where to start, to having my first free appointment with Elias was the best thing I have ever done. Tomika is very easy to talk to, friendly and professional. Elias, well he is great, told me exactly what he could achieve, the cost and the timeframe and he was spot on. Read more

Elias prepared a full set of dentures for my 90 year old mother. The service he provided was exceptional, using current technology effectively to create a set of dentures which were far superior to what she had previously had. Elias also made it very clear that my mother could go back at any time if minor adjustments were required. He gives meticulous attention to detail. Tamika ensures that appointments run to time.

State of the art technology and skills and ability to match. I went to the clinic highly anxious ( my previous dental encounter at another clinic resulted in a panic attack and blacking out twice whilst in the chair) due to the poor integrity of my teeth, as a direct result of a health condition I had lost the majority of my teeth and the remaining were nothing short of a train wreck. Elias treated me the utmost respect and kindness. Read more

Faqs

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. At Aesthetic Dental and Denture Clinic, we offer two types of denture, complete and partial. Complete dentures are necessary when all your natural teeth are missing. A partial denture is used when some natural teeth remain. If you are having extractions, we can also provide you with an immediate denture. This is often an interim denture so you can avoid the embarrassment of being without teeth.

A denture usually lasts between five and seven years. Time and natural changes in the mouth will affect the fit and wear patterns of your denture. If your denture is worn and doesn’t fit as well as it used to, it may require a repair or reline. Having your denture checked every two years will help to ensure a proper fit and by following your denture care instructions, you’ll extend the life of your replacement teeth. 

Dentures don’t last forever. Dentures usually last between 5 to 7 years and need to be relined every 1 to 2 years. Over time dentures become worn and don’t fit as well, so it’s important to reline them regularly. The better you follow your denture care instructions, the longer your replacement teeth will last. 

It is advised that you visit your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and clean. This will help to prevent any major oral health issues from occurring. However, if you have bad breath, bleeding gums, discoloured teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, tooth or jaw pain it is advised to make an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible.

At Aesthetic Dental and Denture Clinic, we know attending the dentist can be difficult for nervous and anxious patients. We offer a number of options to help make your next visit as calm and stress-free as possible. Contact us today and a friendly dental technician will be able to give you all the options available.
