A repair may occur for complete or partial dentures and for various reasons.

A repair is for those where the denture breaks or cracks, if the partial’s clasps break or bend or are lost, or if the teeth on the denture need to be tightened or replaced.

However, based on the severity or location of the issue, it is possible that a complete or partial denture may not be repairable.

It is critical that if you break your denture, you bring it to the denturist. The denturist will assess the damage and determine if it can be fixed. In some instances, repairs can be completed on the same day you bring it in.

It is important that you do not try to repair the denture on your own because oftentimes it will make the denture unrepairable.

The denturist has tools and products that are specifically made to repair the denture.
