How To Avoid Denture Debacles And Other Emergency Denture Repairs

We’ve all been there, blissfully enjoying a crisp green apple or out to dinner with friends when, almost as if you just remembered you forgot to turn off the stove, it hits you. That dreaded wave of embarrassment crawls over you, and you feel the blood in your face flush while you try to play it off. You act out a desperate bout of charades to excuse yourself for a fake phone call without having to smile or talk in fear someone might notice. You’ll have to politely inform your friends that you had to leave early for an emergency, and you will have to buy them lunch next time for skipping on the bill. But don’t worry, you can drive straight to Future Smiles Denture Clinic  and depending on the extent of the denture repair, have that chip or crack fixed just in time for your spicy 3 pm Zoom salsa lessons with Eduardo.

Show Your Dentures Some Love

Here are a few tips to help protect and care for your dentures to elongate their lifespan and avoid emergency denture repairs:

Check-in To See If You’re Dentures and You Are A Good Fit For Eachother

Over time, you and your dentures may not be a good fit anymore. As you age, you may gain or lose weight or even experience progressive bone or tooth loss. Sometimes your dentures need to be relined or refitted. Your denturist can do this by adding new base material to the tissue side of a denture to fit appropriately once again.

Fix Denture Problems Before They Become Worse

Keep your dentures happy and prevent emergency denture repairs by noticing small signs of trouble and damage. This could be wear and tear or chips and cracks. Often, dentures need to be rebased to extend their life. Some signs your dentures need to be rebased is when the pink acrylic base seems to be weakened or loose. Routine checkups and maintenance such as rebasing or relining your dentures can catch or prevent problems before they get worse.

How often do Dentures Need to Be Relined?

As a general timeline, denture-wearers should have their replacement teeth relined on average every 1-2 years. 

How do I know if my dentures need to be rebased?

Dentures need to be rebased every five years or sooner if you notice the comfort/fit has changed or the acrylic/pink base has weakened.

How do I prevent my dentures from breaking in half?

Most denture breaks can be mitigated with proper maintenance, care, replacement and repair of smaller damage. However, a denture may break in half if it is too old, worn down or has been dropped or hit suddenly.
