My dentures keep breaking and obviously my dentist doesn’t know how to fix them because they keep breaking in the same spot. Until I get a new pair, I am going to fix them myself. It can’t be any worse than what she is doing. I am looking online about how to repair them. I know better than to use superglue. So I am looking for a strong seal that is okay for oral use. What’s the best way to repair them? Tom F.
Tom – Your dentures need to be examined by a skilled dentist or prosthodontist to determine why they keep breaking. Until that determination is made, your dentures will likely continue to break.
A dentist may be able to repair the dentures in his or her office, or they may need to be sent to a lab for repair. It is also possible that you need new dentures.
Your attempts to repair your dentures may damage them further, so we recommend that you can a second opinion on the condition on your dentures and have them professionally repaired.
