What Are The Signs That A Denture Needs A Repair Or Replacement?
Here are some vital signs to look out for when your denture needs repairing and/or replaced. Keeping your eyes and ears open to these will ensure that you can contact your Byford dentist as soon as the issue arises.
- Chips and cracks in the denture: these are the first signs of denture damage.
- Change in the fit: if you begin to realize that the denture is feeling looser than what they were before, you must investigate immediately.
- Experiencing pain: especially when you are biting into food or chewing it is not a good sign.
- Sore gums: ill-fitting dentures can lead to sores on the gums. It could also point to ulcers in the mouth, and thus it is a good idea to see your dentist rule out any adverse health condition.

Frequently Asked Questions About Repairing Your Dentures
How Much Does It Cost To Fix Broken Dentures?
It is natural for your jawbone to change with time. It is therefore perfectly natural for your dentures to become loose and irritate your gums. Repairing dentures can set you back on an average of anything between $300-500. Since not all repairs are the same, the cost will fluctuate. If you are looking for same-day emergency service, you may have to fork out a little more than the average cost.
Can I Repair The Denture Myself? Why Do I Need To Visit A Dentist?
Sometimes, a simple repair or an adjustment is all that needs to fix your denture. However, these adjustments cannot be made by you at home. It is the call of a skilled dentist only. This is precisely why we strongly recommend visiting your dentist for regular checks and calling on him. A comfortable denture is equal to the healthiest of smiles.
How Long Does Denture Last?
A denture should last you a minimum of 10 years. With attentive care, you may extend its life by a couple of more years. However, dentures are subject to a lot of wear and tear. Likely, you will inadvertently damage them despite perfect oral hygiene and regularly seeing your dentist.
