While dentures from Smile Design - Family & Cosmetic Dentistry are designed to last for many years, you may need to visit our dentist from time to time for adjustments and minor repairs. Disease, physical trauma, and changes to the jawbone can affect the quality of your dentures and the way they fit in your mouth.
You may need to see Dr. Erfan Imeni for denture repair if your dentures are:
- Broken or damaged
- Worn out
- Immediate (not your custom-made, permanent denture)
Dr. Erfan Imeni offers denture relines and repairs in Durham, North Carolina, to keep your dentures, and therefore your smile, in excellent condition. Depending on the state of your dentures and oral health, our dentist may recommend the following:
- Reline: When the gum tissue and jawbone changes, dentures become ill-fitting and do not seal against your mouth as they should. Our dentist can perform a hard, soft, or temporary reline to improve the fit of your dentures and ensure they are comfortable for your smile.
- Rebase: If the base of the denture is worn out or cracked but the teeth are still in good condition, our dentist may replace the base to improve and strengthen your dentures.
- Repair: Fractured or damaged dentures should be addressed as soon as possible to prevent further damage and to restore your smile.
We encourage you to contact our office at 919-220-5505 if you believe you would benefit from denture repair or a reline. Contact us at 919-220-5505 today to schedule your consultation.
