If you have an existing denture and you start to feel that there is some rocking back and forth or that it doesn’t stay in the mouth as well as it used to, then that might indicate the need for a reline. Your gums are in a continuous state of change and the underlying bone can shrink. When your gums no longer fit to the denture, it will become loose. A reline will refit the denture to the current state of your gums, giving it a better seal and suction. Call us for a same-day reline.
Prevention is a key part in avoiding denture emergencies. An ill-fitting denture will be more prone to breakage as the denture will distort unnaturally due to biting and chewing forces. Regular check-ups and relines will help prevent future breakages. Make sure you are keeping your dentures clean by soaking them overnight and brushing them with a non-abrasive denture toothpaste. When doing so, do it over a towel or fill the sink basin with water in case it slips out of your hand. It will then fall on something soft and will be less likely to break. Sometimes though, breakages are unavoidable. It's never easy when your dentures break, but we are here to help. Call us in any event of a denture emergency.
