Denture rebasing and repair in Kewaskum, WI.
Rebasing is often recommended when the teeth of your denture are still in good condition and have not worn out but the denture base material has. Rebasing is the process of replacing the entire acrylic denture base in order to provide a stable denture without having to replace the denture teeth. A denture rebase may be required if your denture is old or cracked. A rebase is very similar to relining, but the difference is that a rebase replaces all the pink-acrylic denture base material instead of just the lining.
Reasons why a rebase procedure may be recommended may include:
- Denture is broken or damaged
- Weak or worn pink denture base
- Replacement of an immediate denture
Various circumstances can lead to a damaged denture and should be addressed as soon as possible. Repairs restore a fractured or damaged denture as close as possible to its original condition. At Kewaskum Family Dentistry, we can often provide denture repair procedures on a same day basis. We will advise you of the condition of your denture and recommend steps to take to prevent further breakage of your dentures.
