What do if your denture breaks

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

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 like 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.

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 ensures that patients quickly regain their chewing and speaking ability as soon as possible.

Here, our professional dentist will evaluate and examine the damage caused to your denture and identify if 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.

See: Dental implants vs dentures.

We offer immediate and often same-day emergency dental care to help repair your dentures efficiently and quickly. If you have broken dentures, call us on 020 8224 7562.

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 been 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 might not work. So, if your denture has cracked or split in half, you will need to book an emergency appointment with one of our trusted dentists to have them repaired.

Repairing a broken or missing tooth

Purchasing repair glue kits online only provides 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 the 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.

I have been with the Gentle Dental Practice for 8 years, the care and service I have received has always been 5 star. I have recently used their new hygienist Nicky who is great. Looking for a new dentist just contact their very friendly and proffessional team.

Dental Impant Surgery:I had my dental implants fitted recently and I am extremely happy with the outcome. Ali and the team have done an amazing job since I lost my 2 front teeth over 6 years ago. I had to wait for the surgery for a long time due to my age and the issues surrounding having implants at a young age.I finally had the surgery 12 weeks ago and had my two new crowns fitted last week. They look absolutely amazing and the whole procedure was way less painful than I ever thought it would be.I would highly recommend getting your implants done at the Gentle Dental Practice, you won't regret it!A massive thank you to everyone at the practice!

Fantastic work on my teeth and I would highly recommend! My teeth turned out better than I had even hoped for. If you are in need of any dental work, you would be doing a great disservice if you didn't speak to this practice first. The staff were extremely friendly, there were text updates and all in all an excellent service from start to finish. If you haven't guessed already, I am thoroughly pleased with The Gentle Dentle. Thank you!

Like many people, I have an immense fear of dentistry, and dentists, due to previous experiences.I had two broken teeth and one that had been treated incorrectly by an NHS dentist. I had been in daily pain for about 18 months, and had been put on a 6 month waiting list by my NHS dentist.I called gentle dental to explain my problem and they offered me a same day appointment. They were kind, compassionate, understanding, patient and validating. I’m not sure anybody ever feels completely comfortable in the chair, but It’s the closest I’ve ever come!The work needed was carried out, all of the staff were kind and welcoming, and it showed me that the dentist doesn’t have to be a dreaded place!Thank you so, so much gentle dental! I will definitely be returning.

Dental Implants - 3 New Teeth - June 2022I had the most professional and pain free experience when getting my new tooth implants at Gentle Dental. Honestly I put it off for some many years because I just didn't want to go through the pain. But my experience was totally the opposite. Ali and the wonderful girls were there every step of the way. All my questions got answered and I was reassured everything would work out well. And it did. I was worried for no reason.I did think about going abroad to have it done but when you consider the risk factor, time and professional standards - it made no sense to me. I have known Ali for a long time and knew I would be in the best hands and if there were any issues these would could be resolved easily.If you are thinking of having dental implants at Gentle - don't waste any more time. Just book and get it done.Was it painful ? No, uncomfortable for a few days, yes for sure.I just wish I had it done sooner. Thanks guys, love my new teeth 🙂

Can't thank this practice enough for all their help. I don't post reviews very often, so when I do, it's because an impression has been left! Dr Ali saw me at short notice to help fix a broken tooth. The nurse (I think her name was Danni) was so helpful and kind, as were the rest of the team. Thank you for being there for me in my hour of need (the same day i asked for an appointment!)

I’m so happy to find this practice. I suffer from anxiety and high sensitivity to pain. It was very stressful for me going to dentist after years of fear. The team not only make me calm and welcome but I FELL ASLEEP during treatment with Dr Marshall ! So understanding and caring. Thank you!

I have been using this dentist for well over a decade and can honestly say my teeth would be in a far worse situation if wasn’t for the Gentle Dental practice.My most recent visit was for a filling .. barely felt the injection!I would highly recommend this dentist to anyone, but especially if you’re teeth require a high level of care like mine.

This place was recommended to me by family and for a nervous patient the best experience. The reception welcome is cheerful and friendly, beautifully modern area with hot drinks and water on offer.I needed implants, crowns and bridges followed by whitening, so lots of appointments. My dentist Mr Ali Rafai was superb from start to finish, so professional and personable. Throughout the whole process I was cared for wonderfully plus lots of laughs along the way. The constant care during appointments was very comforting, no rushing, and I knew I my needs were Mr Rafai's priority. Plus check up call the next day without fail to make sure everything was going well.Absolutely deserves five stars!

Fantastic experience with Ali. It took 18 months including bone grafting, removing and replacing failed dental implants, invisaline for my bottom teeth which were all over the place and some veneers but now I'm delighted with the outcome.Ali was always very clear about how this wasn't an overnight solution in an honest and forthright manner which gave me confidence that he would deliver results.I was offered several overnight solutions from other dentists locally at a fraction of the cost but when I see how much effort and detail that went into my plan, I know i made the right choice.
