See Your Denturist For These Denture Emergencies

Although dentures are made to be very durable and take on the wear and tear of everyday life, sometimes dentures can become damaged. When accidents happen and your dentures break or cause problems, you don’t need to get new dentures. A denture repair can fix your dentures so that they can once again be usable without the need to pay for a whole new set. If you experience any other denture emergencies, manage what you can at the moment and then visit your denturist to examine the extent of the damage and administer denture repairs.

Denture Emergencies Your Denturist Can Help With

Broken Denture
Although dentures are pretty durable, it’s still possible for them to break, especially if they are several years old and have undergone some wear and tear. Your denture may break from any of the common causes of denture damage, such as being dropped onto a hard surface, sudden temperature changes, or even eating hard foods. No matter how or why your denture breaks, you need to take them to a denturist to be fixed. If the base of your denture has broken, your denturist can provide a denture rebasing that repairs the gum portion of the dentures.

Chipped Or Broken Tooth
Denture teeth tend to chip under the same circumstances that natural teeth chip: eating certain foods or accidents where the teeth suffer sudden impact. If your denture tooth breaks, chips, or is knocked out, try to find the tooth or piece of tooth and store it somewhere secure where it won’t be misplaced. Keeping the tooth or tooth piece can help you cut down on repair costs. If your denture tooth or tooth piece is lost, your denturist will still be able to replace or repair the tooth, it just might cost a little more and take a little longer. If you have broken or chipped your tooth, you should wear your backup dentures, as the sharp edges on the broken tooth of your dentures may cause damage to your mouth or tongue.

Implant Infection
If you have denture implants, it is possible for the implant to fail or for the gums to otherwise become infected. If you begin to develop peri-implantitis, you will need to visit your denturist and dentist to discuss your options and to have your denture implant removed if necessary. Some signs of a denture implant infection are swollen or bleeding gums, pain in the jaw or gums, a feeling as though your denture implants are loose, bad breath, or difficulty eating or swallowing. If you have any issues at all with your dental implants, you should visit your denturist. If you are experiencing pain in your mouth accompanied by a fever, visit a dentist or doctor right away. This can be a sign of severe infection that can be dangerous.

Swallowed Denture Or Denture Part
If a piece of your denture or a denture tooth breaks off and you accidentally swallow it, don’t panic. While you will need to get your denture repaired and you may need to speak to a medical professional depending on the size of the piece you’ve swallowed, it doesn’t present an immediate threat to your health. In the rare case that you inhale a partial denture and it becomes lodged in your throat, seek emergency medical services either from the hospital or from a dental clinic. Inhaling and swallowing your dentures, even if they are small partial dentures, is very rare and is most likely to occur if the dentures are very poorly fitted. If your dentures are not fitting properly, see your denturist for a denture reline to avoid any complications.

Q: If my denture breaks, can I fix it myself?
A: If you need a denture repair, bring it to a trained Calgary denturist. Trying to fix your dentures yourself can make matters worse. Many people who do attempt to fix their dentures often use superglue, even though you should never attempt to fix dentures with superglue. Superglue will not hold over time and is dangerous for your health. Taking your dentures for a proper repair at a Calgary denture clinic is the only way to have them properly and safely fixed.

Q: What is the difference between a denture reline and rebase?
A: A denture rebase will replace the entire base of your full or partial dentures, whereas a reline will reshape the current base of your dentures to fit your mouth better. A rebase is a good idea when your dentures are:

  • Older, but the teeth are still in good shape
  • Cracked along the acrylic base
  • Causing you discomfort with regular wear

If you are experiencing discomfort or have any sort of denture damage, call Future Smiles Denture Clinic for fast and efficient Emergency Denture Repair Services to remedy the issue.
