Denture Problems

Make an appointment with us as soon as possible if any of the following occur:

Broken Dentures:  Nothing is worse than a broken denture… Most likely it’s Friday and you’re all set to head out for the evening and then “Oooops…!” “Dropped ‘em…!”.  Not only did your dentures land on the bathroom floor, but they broke in two.  It’s too late in the evening to call a Denturist for a repair.  “Hmmm… Super glue should to the job, right?”  Now, not only are they encapsulated in a very flavorable glue with a fingertip imprinted in them, but there is a huge space between the front teeth that wasn’t there before allowing you to now whistle your favorite tunes like never before.DSC_0212

No matter how many times I tell people, “No Super Glue,” I do understand that there is a time for everything, maybe, (although not often, like nearly never) and we never recommend it.  However, if necessary, moderation is the key.  Start with the smallest drop possible – you can always add a second drop.  Super glue, if not treated with respect, can destroy a denture and it’s not made for human consumption either.  When repairing a super glued denture, it is extremely difficult to realign the two halves or reattach a tooth as it was before; this attempt is often followed by ill-fitting appliances or potentially new odd spaces at best.
