Are you looking to see a dental technician to have your dentures repaired? Perhaps you have accidentally dropped it causing a crack on the dental appliance which will need fixing. If you are reading this, then you probably found yourself in the said predicament and wondering what you should know over the course of such repairs.
What to expect when having your dentures fixed?
Depending on the damage sustained by your dentures and false teeth, you may require a partial (minor crack and only a few false teeth missing) or a complete repair. In the case of a partial repair, most of the teeth on the denture are undamaged and fit for continued use. Full repairs, on the other hand, would mean that the damage to dentures is extensive and has left it with hardly any solid teeth strong enough to withstand the force of biting and chewing. In some cases, your dentist may recommend that you have the dentures replaced altogether.
Now, unfortunately, denture repairs is not an easy process and will require 3 to 5 visits to a denture clinic in Belconnen to complete. In most cases, you will only spend an hour at the centre each time. Be patient, and you will eventually get your dentures looking as though they are brand new.
Other reasons to see a denture clinic apart from repairs
People who get dentures often like to think that the dental appliance will last them a lifetime which is not the case. Dentures have a shelf life and dentist recommend that you have them replaced every 5 to 8 years. How long it will last will depend on the quality and whether you have been taking good care of it. If you leave food stuck in between the appliance or drop them repeatedly, then you cannot expect them to last very long which means more time and money spent on repairs or denture replacements.
