As a product that is worn every day, it’s normal for your dentures to undergo some wear and tear. It’s also normal for a person’s gums and jaw to change over time. That’s why it’s important to have your dentures checked and adjusted as necessary. If you notice your dentures are losing their grip, are feeling uncomfortable, or causing irritability, it’s probably time to have your dentures relined. Relining is a process where new acrylic is added onto your denture to regain a comfortable, sturdy grip.
While the acrylic (pink part) of the dentures can wear down, sometimes the artificial teeth may be holding up just fine! When that is the case, a denture rebase is an affordable way to achieving the comfort and function that your dentures had when they were first fitted. The process of a denture rebase is to remove the acrylic portion of your prosthetic and replace it with a newly fitted acrylic.
If a denture cracks, chips or wears down, it doesn’t always need to be replaced. At Central Park Denture Clinic, we can provide quality repair services to get your denture functioning optimally again. To learn more about our denture repair services, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
