How your dentist in Pekin, Illinois can help with a damaged denture
If you have a denture, you may be worried about what happens if it breaks. Even the most durable denture can break, although breakage is much more likely in an older denture, not made of today’s high-tech materials. Your dentists at Total Dental Care in Pekin, Illinois want you to know what to do if your denture is damaged.
There are a few ways your denture can break or become damaged:
If a piece of acrylic (the pink gum part) breaks off, but the rest of the denture is fine; you can try a temporary denture repair kit available at most pharmacies like CVS or Walgreens.
If a tooth breaks off of the denture; you can try to glue it back on with the denture repair kit materials, or you can try superglue in an emergency.
Your dentists in Pekin want you to know the best way to repair any damaged denture is to bring it into the office. Your denture can be repaired permanently so an accident doesn’t happen to you again.
Another type of major denture damage is if your denture breaks completely in half. This type of break cannot be repaired by you, even temporarily. That’s because the parts of the denture have to align perfectly, so it fits the same way in your mouth. Only dentists like your professionals in Pekin can fix major damage to your denture.
Don’t let the fear of breakage keep you from enjoying the many benefits of a great denture. The right denture can restore full chewing function, relieve you from the pain of damaged teeth, and restore your smile. Dentures can also help restore the youthful contours of your face. These are just some of the reasons why people choose dentures from your dentists in Pekin, Illinois. You deserve to find your own reasons why a denture is right for you.
