Never go without your dentures thanks to same day denture repair
Regular TLC for your dentures is just as important as it is for natural teeth. To keep them feeling and looking food, regular cleaning and maintenance is required. But sometimes, your dentures may need repairing and we can help! Denture repairs are needed for several reasons, such as a crack in the base or a chip in the teeth or even a tooth getting loose from the denture. Often times, these issues are repaired in just a few hours.
Contact us today so we can assess the damage and come up with a solution.
As your jaw bone shrinks over time, your dentures will begin to fit differently. They could become loose and potentially even cause discomfort. When this happens, it could be time for a denture reline. Denture relines can make a world of difference for your comfort. Denturists take an impression of the tissues in your mouth and then add a new acrylic base to your dentures. For most patients, denture relines are recommended every 1.5-3 years to keep their dentures fitting comfortably and correctly. Our denture relines are done on site in Toronto, typically at the first appointment of the day and then returned to our patients by the end of the day.
Don’t hold off on repairing or relining your dentures. If there are any problems, we are happy to help!
A few things that may signal it’s time for a denture reline:
- Dentures are feeling loose
- Food gathers under your denture
- Getting more sore spots than normal
- It feels like there is trapped air under your denture
Your denture repair cost will depend on the extent of the repair, how many teeth need to be replaced, if reinforcement needs to be added, if impressions need to be taken, and other factors.
A denture reline consists of adding new base (pink) material to the tissue side of your denture to ensure it fits snugly. The denturist at Toronto Denture Centre will need to take an intra-oral impression inside your existing denture to complete the reline. Relining will improve the fit of your denture and won’t change the appearance or address any wear of the denture teeth. Relines are utilized when tissue changes occur due to resorption (shrinkage). Shrinkage happens for many reasons, including weight loss, loss of teeth, loss of bone/tissue, disease, or illness.
We can complete most denture relines in one day. We’ll book you an appointment in the morning to have impressions taken with your dentures. Then, we’ll work on your denture and return it to you at the end of the day.
The best way to get a specific detailed cost is to book a free, no-obligation consultation with us. Your estimate will depend on whether we’re simply relining a layer of acrylic to refit your denture or if we need to replace the entire base.
Soft liners for dentures are applied to the tissue fitting surface on your denture base and they work like a shock-absorbing cushion while you chew. Soft liners can be applied to new or existing dentures. Because of the porous nature of soft liners, they may need to be replaced more often.
