Denture Repairs Hamilton

In most cases, Pino DiNardo, your Denture Repair Specialist in Hamilton can restore an existing broken or cracked denture to its original state. Repairs may be required when breakage or chipping occurs, when one or more teeth need to be added to an existing denture (due to tooth extraction), or because of wear and tear. Most denture repairs can easily be done in one day. If your denture requires a repair, it may be indicative of underlying problems, including age of the denture, worn teeth, or poor fit.

Denture Relines

This consists of adding new base material to the tissue side of a denture so it fits properly. We will need to take an impression inside your existing denture. Relining affects only the fit of your denture and will not change the appearance. Relines are required when tissue changes occur due to resorption (shrinkage).

This can be due to:

  • Loss of weight
  • Loss of teeth
  • Loss of bone
  • Aging
  • Disease or illness

Soft Liners

Is a Soft Liner Right For You?
Permanent soft liners provide comfort and relief for individuals with:

  • Severely receded or flat gums that do not tolerate the stress of dentures
  • Chronic soreness
  • Loss of bone
  • Gums with prominent or sharp bony areas
  • Advantages of Soft Liners

Some of the advantages of soft liners include:

  • Greater comfort (a significant number of denture wearers with chronic discomfort have experienced great relief)
  • Clinical evidence indicates that almost everyone tolerates soft liner materials
  • With soft liners, many denture wearers report that they can chew food more comfortably
  • A proven technology, soft liners have been offered to patients for over 20 years, and over that time the materials and technology have steadily improved

Things to Think About With Soft LIners
Greater consideration in the use of proper cleaners and good home care must be given to soft liners. Soft liners require regular follow-up visits to examine the fit of dentures, the health of a patient's oral tissues, and to ensure professional cleaning

Denture Recare Program

Why Is a Recare Appointment Necessary? Tissues and Bone
Over time, your mouth goes through considerable changes. Tissue shrinkage and loss of underlying bone (resorbtion) on which your dentures rest will occur. Since your dentures do not change, they may no longer fit like they once did.

Oral Cavity
Having an annual oral exam may prevent or help detect the existence of oral cancer or other abnormal conditions.

Medical or Dental History
Updating both medical and dental history is an important step towards quality denture treatment.

Fit and Bite of Your Existing Dentures
Worn out dentures can cause improper fit and bite which can lead to other problems. They can also cause changes in your ability to bite, your speech and your appearance.

The Integrity of Your Dentures Pino DiNardo DD, your Denture Specialist, will check for cracks, chips, scratches, and worn or loose teeth.

What to Expect During Your Recall, Recare Visit:

  • Update your dental and medical history
  • Intra oral examination
  • Check the integrity of your denture
  • Check the esthetics, stability and the bite
  • Discuss options available to you based on your needs
  • Review of oral hygiene procedures and denture care
  • Cleaning and polishing of your dentures, if required
