Denture Repairs in Hamilton
Repairs to dentures often times from accidents where a tooth broke off or cracked can be done at Barthmann Denture Clinic. Sometimes, repairs can indicate an underlying problem with your dentures such as age, wear, or improper fit. Dentures that need constant repairing may need replacing.
Often denture teeth and clasps can be added to existing partial dentures when natural teeth are lost.
A proper denture repair requires a new denture base material to the repair area. To ensure a proper fit, you may require an intra oral impression prior to repair.
Please note: Never attempt to repair or alter your dentures yourself. Improperly repaired dentures (with Krazy Glue®) will not last long and may cause irritation due to the poor fit and may have an adverse effect on your overall health.
Do You Need Denture Repair?
Even comfortable dentures may require repairs or relines at some point. Unfortunately, many people wait until their dentures crack or shatter before seeking professional assistance. To avoid permanent damage, schedule an appointment if you experience any of the following symptoms:
- Difficulty chewing or swallowing
Loose, cracked, or broken teeth
Excessive stains or discolouration
- Swollen, sore, or bleeding gums
When you experience any of the symptoms listed above, you may need your dentures repaired. Some patients who experience denture pain or discomfort are tempted to purchase an over-the-counter repair kit. At-home repair kits often times do more harm than good, and you may end up needing repairs from a denturist in the end. Avoid the do-it-yourself method and leave your denture repairs to Barthmann Denture Clinic.
Most repairs can easily be done in one day. Contact us now at (905) 662-7521 to book your appointment.
