Even with proper denture care, you may still need denture repair or a denture reline at some point. But please don’t attempt to repair your dentures yourself with superglue, or you may cause permanent and costly damage.

At Naples General & Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer denture repair services for these and other situations:

  • Repair broken dentures
  • Replace loose denture teeth
  • Repair chipped denture teeth
  • Replace missing denture teeth
  • Repair broken metal in partial dentures
  • Add teeth to partial dentures to replaced extracted natural teeth

If a tooth popped out of your denture, or it broke in half while you were eating or simply biting down, there may be something wrong with the way it fits. We can help you find the root of the problem and make your dentures much more comfortable to wear.

Once a denture breaks, it will never fit the same way again, and you should think about eventually replacing it after the repair.

Dental Relines

Your gums and underlying bone structure will continue to change naturally, even when you wear dentures. This means that, as time passes, your dentures may loosen or you may experience sore spots and gum tenderness.

A denture reline is a simple and affordable procedure that reshapes the underside of a denture to make it more comfortable as it rests against your gums. Relines are referred to as “soft” or “hard,” and can be completed either at the office or in a lab.

If you’re experiencing any discomfort with your dentures, ask us about a possible reline.
