Do not make the mistake of waiting to have your dentures repaired!
Even if it’s just a loosened part or hairline crack in your denture, do not brush it aside as a small issue. Many denture wearers ignore or delay smaller repair works only to find the damage become more difficult – and expensive – to fix later on.
Resist the temptation to fix your denture yourself with the help of a DIY kit. It is important to understand that most commercial glues are not effective or safe to use to repair dentures. The way we repair dentures is to remove a small section of the denture base material and reapply a new section. The acrylic that your denture is made from bonds readily to itself, but commercially available glues are not effective or safe to use in your mouth.
