My dentures broke, what should I do?
It's hard to imagine living without your teeth, but this is what you are facing when your dentures break! The first step if you find yourself in this situation is to contact your Sarasota Dentist right away. We can assess your situation and determine what your options are.
If your denture is missing a tooth, we may be able to repair it in our office for you.
If your denture is broken in half, it may require some time at the dental laboratory to be repaired. We can often coordinate this repair around your schedule so you are only without your teeth for a short period of time during the repair.
The worst case scenario is that your denture would have to be replaced if it is beyond repair; however, Dr. Aygen will go over all of your options with you so you make the best choice for your lifestyle and budget.
Regular checkups for your denture at least once a year can help ensure that it fits properly and can prevent breakages from occurring. It is typically when your denture is not fitting properly that damage happens.
Contact Sarasota Dental Arts right away if you are experiencing any problems with your denture. It's our goal to provide the best fitting, longest lasting, and most durable dentures possible. Our team can help you get back to normal quickly and easily, no matter what type of denture break you're experiencing!
