DeLux Delivers Fast Turnaround

Time is of the utmost importance to both you, and your patient. Here are some guidelines for repair turnaround to help set expectations. Of course, if you have an emergency, let us know and we’ll accommodate you to the best of our abilities.

  • For replacement of teeth, a broken denture, or if you are in need of a reline, we offer same day repairs for clients. For more complex cases and our clients in outlying areas, we offer next day delivery.
  • For a repair that requires welding of a cast frame or the repair of flexible partial material, we require two full days in the lab.
  • For a 1-2 tooth flipper we require one full day in lab, exclusive of pick-up and delivery (e.g. if we pick up a case on Monday AM, we will return it by Wednesday AM).


Turn to the Proven Experts

Experienced technicians, massive tooth inventory, in house casting and welding means you get great work, fast!

So whether it’s minor adjustments your patients need, such as tightening of your denture clasps, adjusting bite — turn to DeLux to deliver the quality and service your patients deserve.

When Should Patients Consider Repairing Dentures?

Page Image - Repairs 2The life span of dentures varies with their original quality, the degree of care they are given, and the intensity of use they receive. Average life span may be expected to be 8-10 years, but this does vary and isn’t the same for everyone or indeed every type of denture.

Partial dentures that get support from resting on the patient’s gums are more likely to see changes occurring, as the ridges resorb somewhat under the pressure. Relines may be necessary, to ensure the fit continues to be good after a number
of years.

If adjustments can be completed to a satisfactory level, then your patient will be in good shape with repair of existing devices. However, if the current denture can’t really be corrected to original condition, then it makes sense to develop a new set.

Indications it’s Best to Recommend a New Denture:

  • When multiple problems exist with the look, fit and function of your current dentures
  • When the problems can’t easily be solved by adjusting the denture
  • When the denture is old and worn – are the teeth flat or do they still have a pattern on the top?
  • If other work has been done – such as fillings or crowns that has affected the closeness of the fit
  • When the patient has lost multiple other teeth that are now just spaces, or have new teeth that need to be extracted
  • If the denture has broken repeatedly and has already been repaired multiple times.
