Repairs and Relines
Apple Denture & Implant Solutions provides same day denture repairs and relines in Scarborough and Port Hope. Dentures can crack/break in many situations. In cases when the denture breaks in the mouth, there is usually an underlying problem that caused it to crack or break. We will examine your mouth and your prosthesis to determine what exactly happened and fix it so it will not happen again. Most denture repairs are done the same day. Emergency repairs are done in 1 hour while you relax in the office.
After teeth are extracted from your mouth, there is a non-stop, irreversible process known as bone shrinkage, or bone resorption that will occur for the rest of your life. Your bone rapidly shrinks within the first 6-12 month after extractions. After that a reline is needed every 2-3 years to restore the fit of the denture and re-adapt it to your gums. Following reline, you will notice decreased accumulation of food under the denture, along with an improved fit and comfort.
