Where Can I Find Denture Repair in New York?

elderly dentist patient

If you wear dentures, they’re likely to need a repair at some point. You’ll want to get them fixed as soon as possible since you may not be able to eat or speak normally until you get a denture repair.

In this blog, the dentists at Dental365 explain more about denture repair in New York:

What are dentures?

Dentures are replacements for most or all of your natural teeth that can be removed and put back into your mouth. Full dentures have a base that fits over your gums, with an upper base as well as a lower one that accommodates your tongue. Partial dentures rest on a framework that attaches to your natural teeth, where they function like a bridge that can be removed.

Why do dentures break or need repair?

Dentures can break if you drop them or develop issues due to general wear and tear. Partial dentures may also break if you bite down to fit them into place, since this can bend the clasps that attach your dentures to your natural teeth.

If your dentures aren’t fitting well, this can cause you to exert more pressure in a particular spot when you bite down. As a result, small fissures can occur, which might eventually grow into a larger crack. Dentures may also need adjustments from time to time to make sure they’re fitting comfortably.

If your dentures are broken, need repair, or require an adjustment, you should see a dentist to get them fixed. Attempting to repair them yourself can be dangerous because over-the-counter glues contain harmful chemicals. You could also cause your dentures to fit incorrectly, leading to irritation and mouth sores.

What is involved with denture repair?

It’s likely that dentures will need to be repaired at some point. In addition, your mouth may change over time, but your dentures don’t change to accommodate these changes, so they’ll need to be adjusted.

Common repairs include the following:

  • Denture reline – resurfacing a side of your dentures that is in contact with soft tissues in your mouth to help it fit better
  • Denture rebase – remaking the acrylic base of your denture
  • Adjustment – dentures that rub against your gums or mouth tissues can cause sore spots
