We all know that accidents can happen and frequently do no matter how cautious we try to be. Other times, certain items just need maintenance to improve performance and durability. Caring for your dentures is no different. Whether you inadvertently drop your dentures while cleaning them, your dentures suddenly feel loose or need relines, your SW Calgary denture clinic, Future Smiles, can have them fixed in no time. Read on to learn more about the types of denture repairs available in Calgary.

For the most part, Calgary denture repairs can be broken up into two categories: Simple repairs and repairs that require impressions. Prior to any repair work, your denturist will have to inspect your dentures to determine the amount of repair needed or whether it’s repairable at all. Some older dentures may be difficult to mend after a certain amount of wear and tear. Most repairs can be addressed the same day and only require your presence in the clinic. One of the worst things you can do is to attempt to repair your dentures by yourself. This usually worsens the situation and can end up being costly. Calgary denturists are trained professionals that have the expertise and knowledge to quickly and correctly fix your dentures.

Another common form of denture repair in Calgary is denture relines. This is appropriate when dentures feel loose and require a refitting so that they correctly line with your gums. This repair requires a new impression. Since denture relines are more involved, it is likely that your dentures will be sent to a lab for completion.

Along with denture repairs and relines are denture adjustments. Adjustments are typically needed when a patient is experiencing a sore spot on their gums caused by their dentures. These are quite common as our mouth changes over time and as we continually move our mouths throughout the day. However, denture adjustments should not be used to correct a loose denture. Relines are better equipped to fix those issues.

If you are experiencing any loose-fitting or damaged dentures, or just have general denture questions, call Calgary denturist Vlad Dumbrava at Future Smiles Denture Clinic located in SW Calgary today at 403.475.0016.
