Repairs, relines and rushes
How long does it take to add a clasp or do metal work on a patients partial?
- Wrought wire – 1 day in lab
- Cast clasp – 2 days
What is the process for getting a reline and can you do them same-day?
Once we receive the denture to be relined, the complete process takes 6 hours to be completed and yes of course we can do same-day if you are local and you need a hard reline only.
Can we do a repair for a digital 3D printed denture?
Digital Dentures are made of standard denture resin, however not all resins are the same today. ROE uses a few types of resins for bases and resins, composites, and even PMMA for the teeth. All of these materials accept resin-based materials and generally light-cured composites for chairside repairs. All materials can be hard or soft relined with either lab or chairside material. There materials are new, however, and do not have long term studies on repairs. Our primary recommended digital denture includes a Lucitone base with traditional cards of teeth. This combination will accept traditional methods of repairing.
How many days in lab and what records are needed for a snap on smile
Snap on Smile is 5 days in lab for many designs, it will require upper/lower very accurate models and a bite. Please ensure that there are no distortions in the impression so that the appliances can have and exacting fit. Some complex designs may require 3 weeks to fabricate. We will call the doctor’s office on those case type.
