Although dentures are designed to be strong and durable, they will occasionally need a small repair or quick fix over the course of their life. Denture repair can be carried out on a small part of the fitting or the entire framework, depending on the scope of the damage.
The most common repair needed for a denture is a single tooth repair or replacement. For fixed dentures the problem is usually caused by damage during eating or trauma due to an accident, but removable dentures can be harmed at any time they’re not being worn, so it’s important to take care of them at all times. Damage to dentures doesn’t have to be a big concern, as our expert team is on hand to fix them quickly and safely.
Emergency Denture Repair
Sometimes accidents occur, and if your denture is fractured or broken it may need immediate care. When this occurs, you can bring your denture straight to our team and we’ll get started on a repair as soon as possible, to help minimise the time you have to spend without it, and to ensure that no further issues are caused.
Can a Denture Be Repaired?
The short answer is yes! In most cases of damage due to general wear and tear, and often in cases of accidental breaks or chips, we can restore your denture to its former strength and appearance. It’s vital that you seek professional help to repair dentures as attempting to do this yourself is likely to make the problem worse in the long run. If your denture is damaged, make sure to collect any pieces that have broken off and bring them with you to make the repair as easy as possible.
