Ensuring fit and fixing any damages
When you’ve lost many or all of your teeth, dentures are a popular way to restore your smile. However, no matter how high-quality these appliances are, they will require relines or repairs over time.
Dentures require regular relines to ensure they are always fitting properly for optimal function and aesthetics. If you’ve lost even one tooth, your mouth starts changing. Jawbones can recede and gums can shrink, causing gaps between them and your denture appliances. These gaps create lots of places to trap food and leave unprotected gums vulnerable to irritation. To avoid situations like this, we recommend an assessment at least once a year to ensure proper fit.
As careful as you may be with your dentures … damage can happen and will need repaired. Cracks in the appliance, teeth that have come dislodged, or broken clasps require fixing before they become worse.
