Dentures are made of acrylic and although modern acrylics are strong, they are not unbreakable. Many times a denture in need of repair can be indicative of underlying problems, including the age of the denture, worn teeth, or poor fit. Most denture fractures are easily repaired. We can finish most denture repairs at our Victoria on-site laboratory the same day.
We provide the following denture repair services:
A denture reline involves adding new base material to the tissue side of the denture so that it fits properly. A new impression is taken, and in most cases, the reline is completed on the same day the impression is taken.
A permanent soft lining can be added as an additional comfort feature to complete lower dentures. Usually, the permanent lining is processed at the time of fabricating a new denture. It is however possible to add it to an existing denture if it is in good condition.
Ultrasonic denture cleaning is recommended once every six months as a proven method to remove bacteria from the dentures, maintain the colour of the acrylic and extend the utility of the denture.
A denture rebase is a procedure performed when the denture teeth have not worn out in comparison to the denture material. It is a process of retrofitting dentures by replacing the acrylic denture base with new acrylic, which provides a stable denture without replacing the teeth.
A temporary tissue conditioner is a soft lining added to complete upper or lower dentures usually in cases where an immediate denture was inserted and the patient is undergoing the process of gum healing and resorption after extraction. The tissue conditioner is temporary, provides extra comfort during gum healing and stabilizes the transitional denture.
We offer several denture cleaning products for sale that yield better results and are not available through the pharmacy.
