At 121 Earls Court Dental Practice, you can count on us even on a Sunday with an appointment.
We offer same day denture service may it be a new denture or incase of a broken denture subject to the type of damage incurred. Usually we repair cracked or fractured dentures, insert strengtheners into dentures as a same day service or an emergency service to our patients. We also repair chips in the artificial teeth or replace ones that have broken off. Most denture repairs we aim to do while you wait. They usually take between an hour and an hour and a half depending on the availability and type of repair required. If the denture has suffered a more serious fracture, however, it will take longer to repair.
If your dentures are quite old and have broken several times, it may be necessary to have a new set made. Dentures that have had teeth added or fractured multiple times are generally not very comfortable to wear as they no longer fit that well.
What Should You Do If Your Denture Breaks?
If possible, keep all the broken pieces together. Don’t use super glue or try and repair the denture yourself. Attempting to repair it yourself may end up resulting in further damage and make your denture impossible to repair again and uncomfortable to wear. It is always advisable to have your denture fixed by a qualified professional who has the correct knowledge and equipment to do a good job.
