Dealing with a Broken Denture: What to Do Next

While dentures are constructed from highly durable materials, it's important to acknowledge that they are not immune to occasional mishaps. Over time, dentures can experience wear and tear, breakages, the occasional dislodged tooth, and changes in fit. Accidents and unforeseen circumstances can happen. At Cityscape Square Dental, we understand that dealing with a broken denture can be a stressful experience. However, it's important not to panic. 

In this blog post, we will guide you through the necessary steps to take when faced with a broken denture, ensuring that you can regain your smile and oral function as quickly as possible.

  1. Assess the Damage:
    The first step after discovering a broken denture is to carefully assess the extent of the damage. Examine the denture for any visible cracks, chips, or missing pieces. This initial evaluation will help determine the severity of the situation and assist in finding the appropriate solution.
  2. Contact Cityscape Square Dental:
    Once you've assessed the damage, it's crucial to reach out to our experienced team at Cityscape Square Dental. Our dental professionals have the expertise to evaluate your broken denture and provide suitable advice for repair or replacement. Contact our office promptly to schedule an appointment and discuss your situation.
  3. Avoid DIY Fixes:
    While it may be tempting to try DIY fixes found online, it's essential to resist the temptation. Adhesive glues or other temporary solutions can further damage the denture and compromise its functionality. Instead, trust the expertise of our dental professionals to ensure the best outcome for your broken denture.
  4. Evaluate Repair or Replacement Options:
    During your visit to Cityscape Square Dental, our dentist will evaluate your broken denture and discuss the available options. In some cases, a denture repair may be possible, depending on the extent of the damage. However, if the denture is severely damaged or has already undergone multiple repairs, a replacement denture may be recommended for long-term durability and improved oral health.
  5. Temporary Solutions:
    While waiting for your denture repair or replacement, our team will provide you with temporary solutions to maintain oral function and aesthetics. These solutions may include temporary dentures or other interim measures to ensure your comfort and confidence during the treatment process.

Dealing with a broken denture can be unsettling, but rest assured that Cityscape Square Dental is here to help. By promptly contacting our office, our experienced team will guide you through the necessary steps, whether it involves denture repair or replacement. Trust our expertise and dedication to restoring your smile and oral function, so you can continue enjoying life with confidence.
