Denture Repair

The absolute panic that sets in when your denture breaks or when you lose your denture is immeasurable and most people don’t understand unless they wear dentures, it is such a personal thing which is why we want you to know that we understand and our team is here to help you.

LOST dentures are also

very common and again we

have the solution for you!

There are a number of ways we can help:

First of all, you are not alone, many people lose their dentures, some dentures go in the bin by mistake, some dentures have been flushed down the toilet, some have even been wrapped in tissue and thrown in the fire, all by accident of course. Some are misplaced somewhere around the house or in the car or in the pocket of a pair of trousers or a coat that is why the first thing we advise is that you retrace your steps to when you last had your denture. Try and think of all of the places your denture could be. Voila, 90% of people find their lost dentures.

However, if you are not in the 90% and still cannot locate your denture, we are certainly here to help. We will arrange for an emergency appointment with one of our team to get you started on your new dentures and replace them immediately.  We will take that stress and worry away,  we have been known to make miracles.

Why is my Denture breaking?

Dropping / Banging

Not Fitting

Isolated Teeth

Clasps Breaking

Your dentures are nearing 5 years old.

As a denture gets older, it becomes more prone to breaking!

As a denture gets older, it becomes more prone to breaking.  There are 2 main reasons for this, the first is that your mouth changes over time and the denture no longer fits you the same way as it did when you first had it made, the fit becomes looser and looser.  This often causes rocking of the denture while it is being worn.  Repetitive flexing like this weakens the plastic causing it to break.

Alternatively, this flexing can cause the teeth embedded in the denture base to loosen and break out.  You can reduce the chances of this from happening by having your denture relined after 2 years and then replacing your dentures after 5 years.  The second most common reason for dentures breaking is the material itself has deteriorated over time and is more prone to breaking as it ages. Its also becomes porous as it breaks down and is prone to faster bacteria build up. Replacing your dentures every 5 years not only helps reduce breakage but it is the healthier option and recommended for your overall health.

{I have just had my first home visit from the Dental Tech team. Dr. Gaj and Samantha attended to my much overdue dental needs. How I wish I knew about Dental Tech a few years ago when I first became bedbound This is a truly wonderful service. Their care and attention to every little detail is remarkable. Their gentleness and kindness is ever so reassuring. I am so pleased and delighted to now be registered with Dental Tech. Being bedbound puts a lot of much needed servings out of reach of so many patients. Dental care is so important in maintaining general well-being, so to know it is just a phone call away is so reassuring. Thank you Dr Gaj and Samantha for your help, your dental treatment and the lovely joyful relaxed approach you bring when you came into my home. It was an absolute pleasure meeting you both today.

{A truely amazing team, I had the pleasure of having the amazingly talented dentist Gaj out to my house to perform a tooth extraction, I'm house bound and Gaj kept me so calm through the whole procedure, informing me I was doing fine and all was ok, he has answered questions about my recovery even in his own time (after hours) which I am truly grateful for I highly recommend Gaj to anyone who may be an anxious person or panicky, he was so calm from start to finish it kept me calm. Truely an amazing gentleman I'll have him back next week to just check my teeth over but I'm happy to say the healing is going super fast, Review left by a seriously nervous individual but dentist Gaj really cares for his clients..

How is your denture repaired?

If your denture break, there are a few things you should know.

In our Laboratory, we do NOT glue the broken pieces together.  If there is a nice sharp fracture line along which the pieces can be tightly reapplied, our lab tech uses wax to temporarily reattach the broken pieces.  Then they pour a plaster or silicone matrix inside your denture to capture the original internal anatomy.  Finally, they entirely remove all the plastic for about 1/8 inch on either side of the fracture line and replace it with NEW acrylic.  This makes the denture stronger than it was before.  The same process applies when replacing one or more teeth on the denture.  All the old pink plastic is removed and replaced with new pink plastic.

Do not attempt to repair the denture with glue!

Glues that contain volatile solvents will melt the plastic around the edges and cause the repair to distort.  A distorted denture is impossible for a dental lab to repair.  Once the edges are melted, there is no way to put the denture together the way it was before it was broken.  It will always rock and cause miserable sore spots until you either get a new denture, or have it rebased.

Super Glue, which won’t melt the edges of the plastic, has three major drawbacks.  Super Glue is water soluble, and the repair is always temporary.

Secondly, it is difficult to replace even sharp edges together the first time without some sort of dislocation.  This means that your denture will suffer the same problems it would have if you used airplane glue. It contains substances that are not designed to be in the body and may cause harm or sickness.

If the denture broke due to an ill fit, It will eventually break again for the same reason unless you have it relined or rebased at the same time as the repair.
