Your dentures are important to you. Perhaps more than you realise. They are a hefty investment that you have made in your oral health, hygiene, cosmetic appeal and the functionality of your mouth. It may be tempting to adjust a wire clasping or grind away a piece of acrylic, but we seldom see these home fixes work out well. Super glue may also work temporarily, but the chemicals that make it up aren’t very good for the human body, especially if ingested.
You need your dentures to eat and talk and, while we understand that broken dentures are inconvenient to you, it’s important that you avoid the temptation of a quick home fix and make the effort to get them professionally repaired.
Depending on the type of dentures you select, they should serve you as a long-term investment, often lasting more than a decade without replacement. The more DIY maintenance you perform on your dentures at home, the sooner it is likely you will need to re-invest in a replacement set.
It is also best to get denture repairs done before it becomes a major problem. Remember the human jaw can exert an awesome amount of pressure; it doesn’t take much to damage even the strongest of dentures! Avoid the cost of replacement by getting them looked at by qualified specialists sooner rather than later.
We are conveniently located in Aspley near Fortitude Valley and can generally have your dentures back to you in the same day — our technicians may even be quick enough to repair your dentures while you wait. That said, repair time varies depending on what is required. Some can be done in as little as 30 minutes, while for some, more technical fixes, it may take between 24 hours and 5 working days.
At Denture Haus, we repair dentures across the spectrum from full and partial dentures made of acrylic, to cast-metal dentures or those made of flexible materials. We also take the protection of your mouth, teeth and dental fixtures very seriously, providing customised mouthguards for those regularly involved in high-impact active hobbies or professions.
