Dentures are subject to the same wear and tear as natural teeth. You chew, speak, brush, and use your mouth for necessary function each day. Yet, while dentures are created to be durable and withstand normal usage, they are not as hard as natural tooth enamel. Dentures can crack, break, and chip, tarnishing your smile and making you feel embarrassed to smile. Damaging dentures is not uncommon as chewing ice, biting down on hard candies, or long-term wear can crack your dentures easily. If your dentures are cracked, it is important to visit a qualified prosthodontist in a timely manner to have your dentures repaired.
At Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists, we have the expertise that you need for denture repair. While it is possible to purchase an over the counter repair kit for minor damage to your dentures, it is always advisable that you have an expert examine your dentures. What seems like “just a small crack” or “just a minor chip” can actually lead to compromised strength of your dentures. Over the counter kits rarely offer any kind of lasting solution, and more damage could be done to your dentures in the time you put off having your dentures professionally repaired. Your dentures take just as much wear and tear as natural teeth, so having a compromised system within your mouth is never a good idea.
Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists offers on-site repair services that are carried out by experienced technicians under the guidance of our prosthodontists. One of our greatest assets is having an on-site laboratory that allows for quicker turnaround time and the ability for our doctors to enable consultations between patient and technician without the need for multiple appointments.
If you have cracked your denture or it has suffered any other type of damage, it is important to preserve your denture as securely as possible. Do not wear your denture! Simply wrap it in a clean, moist towel, place it in a sealed container, and bring it into our practice.
