Your dentures help you live a normal life – they help you speak, they help you chew, and they brighten your face when you smile. Unfortunately, sometimes your denture or partial denture will need to be repaired due to broken teeth, broken clasps, a tooth on your denture falling out, or other problems. We understand how stressful this can be and are available to help.
What You Should Know About Denture Repair
Biting down on hard food or dropping your dentures can break or crack them. You might be tempted to try to fix them with an over-the-counter denture repair kit. But you might be doing more harm than good if you go this route. Professional dental lab technicians have access to special adhesives, acrylics and professional grade teeth that aren’t available to the general public. Never use Super Glue to try to fix the dentures yourself.
Having the denture repair done professionally also helps to avoid sore spots and chewing problems. Many repairs can be completed the same day in our office. If your denture repair is more complex, we may need to utilize a local lab. Once the repairs are done, we’ll adjust the denture as needed for a comfortable fit.
Should you find yourself in need of a repair, please call our office right away to schedule an evaluation. Provide details on the needed repair and let us know if you have a spare denture to wear if you need to.
