What If My Denture Breaks?
Unfortunately there is no guarantee’s that your dentures won’t break. This goes for all types of dentures and for every level of materials and workmanship that can be used on your dentures.
We say this because accidents can happen and over time, general wear and tear can occur.
You can prolong the life of your dentures by being careful when using and storing them, and also by practicing a healthy oral hygiene routine. By allowing everyday bacteria and food debris to build up, they can start to damage your dentures and reduce their life span.
When your dentures are not in your mouth, they need to be stored in water to ensure they don’t dry out, as dentures that dry out can crack and break.
My Dentures Have Broken
If your denture has already suffered damage, it is important to call us as soon as possible. We will always endeavor to salvage and repair your denture in the first instance. In the most extreme cases when a repair is not possible (if the denture is shattered into many pieces), we will discuss alternative options with you so you can return to your every day life as soon as possible.
Denture Repairs While You Wait
We will always try and fix your denture as quickly as possible, and to a high standard. If the denture requires longer, we will advise when you come in so you can decide whether to wait or come back and collect your denture later on.
