Same Day Denture Relines – There’s No Need to Wait Days for Repairs in Clearwater, FL
Same day denture relines and repairs are available at Florida Dental Centers in Clearwater, FL. When a denture breaks or requires adjustment, it can be difficult for a patient to speak and chew, so fast and effective repairs are essential. At Florida Dental Centers, we have a full-service denture lab at each office location, which means that we’ve eliminated the need to send our denture repair work to outside labs. As a result, we are able to save our patients both time and money, helping them quickly return to their daily activities with confidence.
At Florida Dental Centers in Clearwater, Florida, we generally recommend denture relining every one to two years to ensure proper fit and ongoing comfort. Additionally, dentures can become damaged or ill-fitting and require relining more often for a number of reasons. For instance:
- A patient’s facial structure is constantly changing, and this process is accelerated after the roots of the teeth are removed from the jaw. Health conditions like diabetes and osteoporosis can also contribute to facial bone loss over time.
- The gum tissue (edentulous ridge) naturally contracts when it does not have teeth to support. While the majority of the shrinkage typically occurs within the first few months after the teeth are removed, and thus can be accommodated in the denture fit, the process will gradually continue for the rest of a patient’s life, necessitating periodic denture relining.
- Dentures, which are usually crafted from acrylic and metal, are simply not as strong as natural teeth and will deteriorate over time. The added stress of daily talking, chewing, and handling can make dentures even more susceptible to break down.
