Denture Repairs & Services FAQs
Having your denture broken is not a life-threatening dental emergency. However, you would most likely want your broken denture fixed immediately. After all, not wearing your dentures can cause problems to the health of your remaining teeth. When you chew without your dentures on, it puts more pressure on your neighboring teeth that can result in face changes and jaw problems.
If it is only a tooth that has fallen off your denture, then you can fix it at home by applying super glue to put the tooth back on temporarily. But as always, a professional repair with dental grade acrylic resin is the best long term fix.
Denture repair can take more than 24 hours depending on the severity of the damage. If your denture has a chipped tooth then it can be repaired in just a couple of hours, but a cracked acrylic base may take at least a day to repair.
Denture repair kits are only temporary. According to FDA, prolonged use of home-repaired dentures can lead to faster bone loss, continuing irritation, sores, and tumors.
Some denture creams containing zinc, such as Super Poligrip and Fixodent, can develop high levels of zinc in your blood. Even though the body requires zinc in small amounts, excessive zinc consumption can lead to zinc poisoning or hyperzincemia.
Many people adapt to new dentures right away, but for some, it can take a few months before they get accustomed to the fit and feel. It is common to experience a little difficulty when speaking and feel mild discomfort while adapting to your new dentures. But give it some time and your jaw and gums will adjust to the new dentures and you can get back to feeling like yourself again.
Each person will have a different adjustment period, and it may take you some time to be comfortable with your new denture. But through time, your jaw bones and gums will shift and your dentures won’t fit as well. This requires your dentures to be adjusted, modified, or replaced by your dentist. It is advised to never try to adjust your dentures yourself.
You may have been wearing your dentures all day causing some pressure to the surrounding gums. Relieve the pressure by taking your dentures out while you sleep to give your gums a chance to relax. You can mix 1 half to 1 teaspoon of salt to a glass of warm water, and rinse your mouth for 20 to 30 seconds to help reduce inflammation. You may also apply a topical gel made specifically for oral pain relief or dental cream to the sore areas on your gums.
