Same Day Denture Repairs
What are Same Day Dentures Repairs?
Dentures are helpful prosthetic appliances that can enhance your appearance and improve how you talk, eat and chew. While most dentures can last easily for up to a decade, it isn’t uncommon for repairs to be needed along the way. In some cases, your denture might have cracked or broken entirely, or there may be teeth missing from the plate. At Bastrop Denture and Implant Center, we are able to do all of these repairs for you quickly and easily.
We offer our patients the option to repair their dentures in a single day!
Why Would You Need Same Day Denture Repairs?One of the most common problems that people have with their dentures involves the plate cracking or breaking. In some instances, this is caused by either a pet or child getting hold of the denture and destroying it. In some cases, the denture might have worn down due to bruxism and other problems. Some people may find that the teeth on their denture fall off and that these need to be replaced.
Who is a good candidate for Same Day Denture Repairs?Anyone who is wearing a denture that is showing signs of wear or damage will benefit from repairs. These repairs can be done in-house in a single day. If your denture is very old and in need of replacement, we may suggest that you get a new one rather than repair the one that you have. Dentures can last for anywhere from five to seven years depending on the patient’s wear on the appliance.
What can be expected during Same Day Denture Repairs?
We will take impressions of your teeth and mouth to use these molds to create your new denture. The denture is crafted specifically to your needs, and is fitted in the same day! It’s not uncommon to need a few adjustments before the denture fits perfectly. It is important that you remove the denture nightly to clean and soak it. You may need to replace the denture after about seven years, or when it starts showing signs of wear. Certain factors and habits can contribute to the life span of your denture and will affect how long it’ll last.
