Denture, Retainer & Other Acrylic Repairs

Few things are more frustrating than having a dental appliance you cannot live without, and having something go wrong with it. When you think about it, dental appliances such as retainers, nightguards, splints, and dentures really take a beating from day-to-day use. From crunching carrots, to absorbing the force from nightly teeth grinding, it sometimes seems like a miracle that they last as long as they do.

At Royal Oak Dental Group, we know that when your dental appliance becomes damaged, you want it repaired as quickly as possible.

TMD & TMJ Treatment with Splints & Nightguards

Splints to treat TMD or TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder) and bruxism can really take a beating at night from clenching and grinding. It’s no wonder that the occasional crack or hole needs a repair. In order to protect your splint or nightguard from irreparable damage, set up an appointment today at one of our local dental offices for a repair as soon as possible. You should also plan to bring them with you to your appointments so we can check their condition.

Appliances like splints and nightguards should have periodic adjustments to fix the surfaces, which can become ground down, and no longer offer the same guidance.

Orthodontic Retainer Repairs

Acrylic orthodontic retainers are an essential part of your oral treatment. Once your treatment is complete, and your teeth are in their new position, we can create a retainer to wear for a specific number of hours per day, in order to prevent orthodontic relapse. That occurs when your teeth drift back toward their original location.

Because you frequently wear your retainer, you probably carry it with you. Between day-to-day wear, and taking it with you from place to place, it might eventually need a repair if the acrylic cracks or breaks. We keep the supplies on hand to make basic acrylic repairs on the spot, so that you don’t have to leave your retainer, or have it shipped to a dental lab.

Affordable Acrylic Repairs for Partial & Full Dentures

Properly fitting dentures are essential to your health and comfort. Your mouth is sensitive, and one little rough spot can create significant discomfort. Additionally, having a damaged partial or full denture may mean that it will not fit at all. To prevent sores and ensure a proper fit, you should have your partial or complete dentures checked periodically for damage. If damage occurs, Royal Oak Dental Group can have them repaired for you at a local dental lab.

Do Not Try This at Home!

You should never attempt to repair your dental appliance at home, as the smallest errors can ruin your appliance for good. We use special materials designed to withstand the acidic environment caused by your saliva and materials that are strong enough to withstand the forces of chewing.

Dear Patient:
 
We hope this message finds you safe and healthy as we all collectively do our best to navigate the COVID-19 health crisis. Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout these challenging times. Because the health and safety of our patients and community is paramount, it has been necessary to limit our patient care to urgent and emergency care over these last few months.

As we have closely followed recommendations from the North Carolina Dental Board, CDC, and other reputable health organizations, we recognize the importance of regional-specific guidance based on the most comprehensive, accurate, and current scientific literature and data available. While community guidelines may continue to evolve, we must continue to make our treatment decisions based on the best knowledge available. It is our job to help improve the health of our patients by approaching comprehensive dental treatment PROACTIVELY, not just reacting after the compromise has become irreversible in nature.

With this in mind, we have made the decision to safely reopen our doors to ALL PATIENTS beginning Monday, May 11th. This means routine dental care, such as cleanings and simple restorations, will resume. When you come to our office you will notice the following elevated measures and precautions that we believe are necessary to maintain until we emerge from this COVID-19 environment (and likely thereafter):  

  • Sanitation stations in the front desk/waiting area
  • Anti-microbial Hydrogen Peroxide mouth rinses before the start of each appointment
  • Hi-Evacuation suction for hygiene appointments to minimize cavitron-related aerosols
  • Patient entrance doors will remain open to reduce contact 
  • Mandatory pre-screening questionnaire over the phone when appointments are confirmed and upon arrival to the office, in addition to temperature checks of ALL STAFF and PATIENTS
  • Patients will wait in their vehicles until their appointment begins
  • Limited access to patient waiting areas and operatories whenever possible (e.g. restricted to patients, parents of young children, translators, service animals, special needs assistance, etc.)
  • Enhanced social distancing measures throughout the office 

This is not the first crisis that we have endured as a state or as a nation, and we look forward to overcoming this event better, stronger and more resilient than ever before. We cannot thank you enough for trusting us with your oral health. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or concerns, and let us know if there is anything we can do to better serve you.
 
Sincerely,
Royal Oak Dental Group
