Under the repair of dentures is understood the process of repairing removable or fixed structures in case of damage. Despite the fact that they are now manufactured using the latest technology and quality materials, their integrity may also be compromised.
Causes of Damage
Most often, structures break when falling or hitting, resulting in cracks and chips, but there are other reasons:
- The load is unevenly distributed.
- Poorly manufactured product.
- Non-compliance with hygiene rules.
- Inappropriate storage.
- Cracks in the abutment.
Any damage due to untimely correction can lead to deformation of the entire bridge. The end result of which will be costly repairs and alterations of the entire structure.
Repair of removable dentures
Depending on the type of breakdown and the causes that arise, the following types of work can be carried out:
- If you fall or hit removable dentures or become cracked, or split into several parts. Repair work is possible if the fracture line allows you to connect and fix the parts. At the same time, a new material is used to connect them, but first, before this, reinforcement (the introduction of materials that enhance the strength of the prosthesis) is made of the prosthetic base. Repair is not possible only if there are more than two damaged parts, or their ends cannot be connected.
- Elimination of defects is also possible with fractures of the support-holding hook on a plate bridge or clasp. To do this, silicone prints are removed with the structure fixed in the oral cavity, after which a new wire clasp is made in the dental laboratory.
- When the abutment teeth are removed, a hole forms in their place. In this situation, the prosthetist will also make a mold, increase and cover the material with an empty area.
- If an artificial plastic tooth is damaged, it is changed to another, picking up an analogue in color and shape.
