What Do I Do If I Damage My Dentures

If you damage your dentures, remain calm and follow these steps. Remove the damaged dentures from your mouth and assess the severity of the damage. Avoid attempting any repairs yourself and instead contact your dentist or a denture professional for assistance. They have the expertise and tools to assess and repair your dentures effectively, ensuring their proper functionality and maintaining your oral health. Still, it is wise to ask, “What do I do if I damage my dentures?” We can offer the information and tools necessary to address a problem if you have one. At PeakView Dentistry can answer any questions you have regarding denture care.

Can Dental Implants Work for You?

Take this 15-second quiz to see if dental implants are right for you!

Where do I start?

If your dentures are damaged, visit our dental office so we can examine them and determine the best way to fix them. One thing you should keep in mind is that your dentures will need to be adjusted one or several times when you first receive them. Patients may call our family dentist office worried that they did something to cause their dentures to fit incorrectly, when in actuality, they only need to be adjusted so they can fit perfectly.
We are an emergency dentist, so if you did indeed damage them, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with our dental practice right away. You can do so by calling 303-578-5800.

Home Care Tips

You should never try to fix your dentures on your own since this can cause the damage to spread. However, there are certain things you can do at home before heading to the dentist, including:
Gather anything that’s broken off
We encourage you to gather any piece of your dentures that has broken off, including any of the wiring.
Use dental wax
If the clasps have become slightly loose, they could be rubbing against your gums and irritating them. In this case, you may want to buy dental wax to place on the wire as a temporary barrier. Be sure to see a “dentist near me” who can treat you quickly.
Take them out
Soak your dentures or place them in a case for transportation to our office. Do not continue wearing damaged dentures.

Do Not Do This If You Damage Your Dentures

PeakView Dentistry warns patients to avoid doing the following, since this can permanently damage dentures and reduce the likelihood that they can be repaired.
Do not buy a home repair kit
These can cause your dentures to break even further, and we have treated patients who have had to spend more money because of it.
Do not use over-the-counter glues
Some of them are full of chemicals that can harm you. It is not worth the risk when you can visit our dentist office for help.

Dental crowns and dental bridges
We can address partial tooth loss with dental crowns and dental bridges. In this case, the remaining teeth are prepared to create space for the dental crowns. Simultaneously, the crowns, gum base, and new teeth (bridge) are created in the dental lab. You will then come in for the crowns to be secured to the teeth adjacent to the missing ones. These crowns will serve as anchors to hold the bridge in place. In this way, your new teeth will be secure enough to enjoy your favorite foods, speak with confidence, and smile without being concerned about how your teeth may appear. You can care for your dental crowns and dental bridges like you would your natural teeth, and they should remain in place for years.

Dental implants
Dental implants provide a superior solution for tooth replacement as they don’t rely on support from remaining teeth. The procedure involves implanting a titanium post into the jawbone, allowing it to fuse with the bone over time. Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth, providing the freedom to eat, speak, and enjoy life without concerns. Unlike dentures, dental implants are permanent and don’t require nightly removal or soaking. They offer convenience, stability, and a more natural appearance. In addition to dental implants, our family dentist office can also enhance your smile with teeth whitening and dental veneers.

From the minute I walked in I was greeting with kindness, care, and exceptional treatment. Ellie is an extremely warm and welcoming person, and she made the whole dentist office experience interesting, comfortable, and a lot less stressful than expected. Dr. K and the whole team also deserve the most praise, as they are all diligent, kind, respectful, and educated individuals who truly show care for their patients/clientele. I not only left with exceptional treatment, but newfound friends. Thank you everyone!
