When you have broken your dentures we understand that being without teeth is not an option and having a quick turnaround is a must.
Depending on the type of break, we will endeavor to fix your denture while you wait. As soon as a break occurs it is important that you keep them moist, ideally in a glass of water so they don’t dry out to avoid any further damage. Be careful to collect all the pieces up so we can put the denture together. If the denture has shattered into many pieces, it is very unlikely that denture can be repaired and a new set of dentures may be required. In this worst case scenario we will endeavor to get you a new set of dentures as soon as possible so you are not without your teeth for a long time.
As a rule of thumb, if both the pieces of the denture fit together then it will be a simple case for us to repair them while you wait.
If you would like advice in an emergency, please do not hesitate to call us as soon as you can and we will be happy to help. If we are closed and you are really not sure what to do, do not try to fix them at your home. Anything you use on them can make them worse and may mean it is not possible to repair them e.g. do not use super glue. Keeping them wet till you can see us will always be the best advice.
