Denture Rebase & Repairs
Denture fit, comfort, and usability may become compromised over time due to wear and tear on your dentures or changes in your health. Your dentist at the Ocean Dental Center may recommend repairs for your dentures. Please read below for denture repair information.
Rebasing is the process of replacing the entire acrylic denture base providing a stable denture without replacing the denture teeth. Rebasing may be recommended when the teeth of your denture are still in good condition and have not worn out in comparison to the denture base material.
A rebase for a denture maybe required if your denture is old or is cracked. A rebase is very similar to relining, the difference being that, a rebase replaces all the pink-acrylic denture base material instead of just the lining.
Reasons for the rebase procedure may include:
- Broken or damaged denture
- Weakened or old pink denture base
- Replacement of an immediate denture
A variety of circumstance can lead to a damaged denture and should be addressed immediately. Repairs restore a fractured or damaged denture, returning it close to its original condition.
The Ocean Dental Center can often provide denture repair procedures on a same-day basis. Your dental specialist will advise you of the condition of your denture and will recommend steps needed in preventing further breakage.
