Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. At Summit Denture Clinic, we custom-design dentures to fit snugly over your gums and fully restore your ability to chew and speak as well as improve your appearance and also repair dentures in the event they become ill-fitting or damaged.  

When dentures break or become damaged, they can cause pain and discomfort and lose their ability to function properly. In addition, an ill-fitted or damaged denture may rub against the gums and cause inflammation. That is why repairing your denture as soon as you feel its fit is not perfect is necessary.  

How Are Dentures Made?

Generally, dentures consist of an acrylic base, with natural-looking replacement teeth made from porcelain or acrylic. The base of the denture is shaped to fit your mouth, and the artificial teeth are fitted onto the base. The artificial teeth are shaded to match the color of natural teeth. 

While your natural teeth are firmly anchored in your jawbone, dentures simply rest on the gums. Over time, the shape of the gums may change. That’s why it’s important to make sure to have your dentures refitted periodically to ensure the optimal fit.

Common Signs of Denture Problems

Your dentures may feel loose if they no longer fit tightly against your gums. Your gums may also feel tender and look red, which is a sign that they may be irritated. The discomfort will likely lead to difficulty chewing, which can cause you to favor softer foods. You may also have issues talking or pronouncing certain words properly.

Whenever you feel any discomfort wearing your denture or you feel it is loose, you should schedule an appointment with our denturist to have them checked and repaired or realigned as needed. 

When Is Denture Repair Necessary?

Dentures are durable but they can break or change shape over time or if not properly cared for. If you are having a problem with your dentures, you should seek to check and repair them right away to avoid complications. Damaged or ill-fitting dentures may cause discomfort and pain and even lead to oral health issues.

Most types of damage can be fixed with an adjustment. If you break your denture and the damage is minor, we may be able to repair it. If the damage is significant, we may recommend having the dentures completely replaced.
