Have you damaged or broken your dentures? Here’s why you should never attempt to repair your dentures at home and how our denturist can help restore the beauty and function to your smile. 

Today, the wide array of tooth replacement options such as traditional dentures and dental implants can greatly benefit patients who are suffering from tooth loss. Not only do dentures make you look younger, they also allow you to eat, talk, and smile with greater confidence.

However, failing to replace or repair broken dentures can have many serious consequences, such as:

Home Care Tips For Your Dentures

While it may seem like the quicker and more affordable solution, you should NEVER attempt to repair your dentures at home, as this can cause more extensive damage. However, there are certain things you can do, including:

  • Gather up any broken pieces. Look for and gather up any parts of your denture that have broken off, including the wiring, and bring it into your denturist, as they may be able to use these pieces during the repair.

  • Use dental wax. If you notice that your denture clasps have become slightly loose and are rubbing up against your gums, irritating them, you can buy dental wax to place on the wire as a temporary barrier. However, it’s important to visit your denturist to get this fixed quickly.

  • Take them out. If your dentures are damaged, don’t wear them. Soak them or place them in a case while transporting them to your local denture clinic.

DIY Denture Repairs: What to Avoid

When you have damaged dentures, there are certain things you shouldn’t do to avoid permanent damage to your replacement teeth and increase the likelihood that they can be repaired.

This includes:

  • DO NOT buy a home repair kit. While these claim to be a more affordable option, they can cause your dentures to break even further, causing you to spend more money on costly repairs or a full replacement.

  • Stay away from over-the-counter glues. Some of these products are full of chemicals that can be harmful to your health. It’s not worth the risk when you can visit your denturist for a simple repair.
