When Bad Things Happen to Good Dentures
Q: WHAT DO I DO IF I BREAK MY DENTURES?
A: Please, donít try and repair them yourself. Call me to fix the denture correctly using the same material the denture is made of. A repair can be done quickly and you can wait for us to do it. Put away the super glue.
Q: HOW COME MY DENTURES KEEP BREAKING?
A: Once a denture breaks, it will most likely continue to do so since it now has a weak spot. The real reason, however, is that the denture is not fitting properly or that your bite is off. A bad bite can cause headaches, tissue soreness or TMJ problems.
