Do you fix or repair dentures?
We know that living without your dentures even for a short time can be inconvenient and frustrating. Depending on the type of damage, we may be able to make the repair in our office.
If the damage is more severe, we may choose to send the denture to a professional dental lab where it will be repaired by skilled technicians. In either case, we will arrange to return your denture to you as soon as possible.
What sort of preventative care do you recommend?
There are some steps that you can follow to reduce the chances of breaking your dentures:
- Avoid biting down on hard snacks like nuts that can cause an artificial tooth to break.
- Make sure that your hands are dry when handling your dentures to avoid dropping them on a hard surface. Placing a towel on your bathroom counter will give the dentures a soft place to land if you do drop them.
- Your dentures should always remain moist when not in your mouth. Make sure you place them in a container of denture cleaner in a safe location.
If you do damage your denture, please contact us and we'll make arrangements to get them returned to you as quickly as possible.
