Dentures are an effective means of replacing lost teeth, but they can only do their job properly if they’re in good condition and they fit well. If your denture has come loose or it is damaged, we strongly recommend giving us a call. We offer swift denture repairs and we can also replace damaged and ill-fitting dentures.
What to do if your denture breaks
Dentures are robust, but they’re not immune to damage. Accidents can happen, and if you drop your denture or it gets crushed by something, the best thing to do is give us a call. We’ll try and fit you in as soon as possible, and we can get started on either trying to repair or replace the damaged denture. Don’t try and soldier on with a broken denture, as you may find that it causes you pain and discomfort and you won’t be able to speak or eat properly.
We recommend avoiding DIY dental repairs, as it’s possible that you’ll end up doing more harm than good.
Denture care tips
Sometimes, it’s impossible to avoid or prevent accidents. However, there are some things you can do to reduce the risk of denture damage. We advise all our patients to schedule regular dental checks. Even if you have no natural teeth remaining, it’s important to see your dentist so that they can have a look at your gums and check the fit and condition of your denture. Your mouth changes shape constantly, so a denture won’t last forever. It will need adjusting or replacing periodically to ensure that it fits you perfectly and prevent sore spots. When you’re cleaning your denture, do it over a basin filled with water or place a cloth or towel on the surface. This will reduce the risk of the denture breaking if you drop it while you’re cleaning it. When you’re not using your denture, keep it in a glass of lukewarm water. Don’t use boiling water to cleanse the appliance, as hot water can cause it become misshapen.
If you have a denture and you’re worried that it may be damaged or broken, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
