DENTURE REPAIRS & TOOTH ADDITIONS
Repairs to Dentures
Denture breakage frequently occurs when the denture
is dropped, but may also occur when they no longer fit the mouth correctly
due to bone shrinkage and jaw shape changing over time
In most cases broken dentures can be repaired. It is
advisable to retain all broken pieces and take them to the technician.
It may be necessary to have new impressions taken so the denture can
be refitted to restore comfort & prevent breakage from re-occurring.
Adding teeth to existing dentures
It is not uncommon for a natural tooth to require extraction after
a denture has been fitted. In most cases, it is possible to add
teeth to existing dentures using tooth coloured acrylic resins.
The same applies to a situation where a broken tooth on the denture can be replaced with a new tooth. However, adding teeth to Chrome metal base dentures may require the existing denture base to be modified by welding an extension to the denture. This process may take up to seven days to complete.
