Edmonton Denture Specialist Holding a Denture

What to Bring to Your Denture Consultation

Dentures will break, even the best-fitted, highest quality ones. Sometimes it’s the result of an accident, sometimes it’s wear and tear over time and sometimes it’s the lack of stability that comes with progressive bone loss and a shrinking jaw.

A variant of Murphy's Law states that “whatever can go wrong with your dentures, will go wrong... at the most inconvenient and embarrassing possible moment.”

What do you do if your dentures break?



  • The number one rule of broken dentures is to not try to repair them yourself. Denture repair is not a DIY project and requires an experienced denturist or denture technician to make repairs. The glues that you may be tempted to use are toxic or foul tasting, and simply will not hold for any length of time in your mouth. As we discussed in our previous blog, dentures require care and proper maintenance to ensure that they maintain their shape and function properly. Dentures are custom formed to a mould of your mouth and a self-repair from a crack, chip or break will mean you most likely won’t be able to fit the pieces together as they are meant to be. This may cause the dentures to fit poorly and cause a litany of attendant issues. Denture repair is precision work that requires expertise, special equipment and the proper materials. DIY gluing will only create excess material where there shouldn’t be any and will likely render the dentures irreparable afterwards.


What do you need to bring to your repair consultation?


  • Regardless of the condition of the dentures, gather the broken pieces and keep them moist by placing them in denture solution until they can be serviced. It is best to not wear damaged or broken dentures to prevent further damage to the denture and to protect your mouth. The poor fit may cause gum irritation and sores, and a very real danger exists of swallowing broken pieces.
  • The next step is simplest of all: for denture repairs in Edmonton, give us a call at Millwoods Denture Clinic for an appointment the very same day. We pride ourselves on being able to repair many dentures in-house with minimal disruption to your schedule.
