Do Not Repair Your Dentures At Home

A dentist fixing denturesDentures can be rather expensive. It is understandable that when patients have a problem with their dentures, for example a broken tooth, they may try to cut corners by repairing them at home. From a professional point of view however this is a terrible idea that could have dire consequences.

First of all please understand that when dentures are made, they are put together only after taking exhausting measurements of the patient’s mouth and bite pattern. They are custom fit specifically for the individuals mouth. Any deviation out of these measurements could easily disrupt the function of the jaw, move or displace any real teeth that are remaining, as well as compromise the ability of the patient to properly bite.
