the best way to care for your dental implants

Emergency denture repair

Are you experiencing the consequences of bad and ill-fitted dentures? Or perhaps your dentures have broken?

Dentures can cause irritations in the gum and mouth, often leading to infections. This can cause you problems when eating, chewing and speaking.

We’re here to help. Book an appointment.

Broken dentures can have an enormous impact on your life, which is why they are considered a dental emergency.

Though some patients have spare dentures should a situation as this arise, they may not fit as well, so for comfort and better health it is important to repair your broken dentures as soon as possible.

Gentle Dental is a trusted family-run dental group that has been helping patients smile for over 30 years.

We are open 24/7, and our expert dentists and specialists provide emergency same-day appointments, whatever your needs.

What do if your denture breaks

In most cases when a denture becomes broken it is considered a dental emergency and often dentists like Dr Ali Rifai, will be willing to bring you in for an appointment quickly.

This is to ensure that patients are put at ease as quickly in order to regain your chewing and speaking ability as soon as possible.

Here, a professional dentist will evaluate and examine the damage caused to your denture and identify is a repair is necessary, or if you will require new dentures.

For comfort, strength and durability the doctor may recommend dental implants as an alternative to traditional dentures.

Do not wear your damaged dentures

When your denture breaks, it is essential that you remove your dentures from your mouth, especially if they have cracked.

If you retain the dentures in your mouth, you risk damaging your gums or palate or choking on a loose piece of the denture.

If your denture breaks during chewing, spit out the food and remove the denture immediately. Rinse your mouth with water and be careful not to swallow.

Gently wash your denture and book an appointment with us to have it repaired.

Temporary fixes

Is it possible to repair a deteriorated denture? The short answer to this is yes.

However, it entirely depends on how the dentures have damaged.

If a tooth is broken, cracked or has fallen out, then be wary of repairing dentures yourself at home.

Some denture repair kits may claim to fix cracks, but this is not true.

So, if your denture has cracked or split in half, you will need to book an emergency appointment with one of our trusted specialists to have them repaired.

Repairing a broken or missing tooth

Purchasing repair glue kits online only provide temporary stability to dentures.

In this situation to protect your oral condition and state, we recommend that you schedule an appointment with a dentist at your earliest convenience.

In this case of a missing tooth, it is essential not to ignore the problem. Often teeth fall out due to infection, decay, deterioration or trauma.

Once a tooth has fallen out then the condition of the mouth can deteriorate quite quickly and the formation of gum disease and the more serious periodontal disease are much more likely to appear.

As missing teeth encourage bacteria and infections to spread through the mouth, it is important to replace the missing tooth straight away before replacement methods, such as dental implants become more difficult to apply.
