Should You Repair Broken or Worn Dentures?
The decision to repair or replace your dentures depends on the type of denture, the state of the denture, and, most importantly, the possibility of quality repair.
If you have old dentures that are worn, repairing them is not a good option. Repair is also not a good option if you have economy dentures that never fit or functioned well anyway. You should never repair a denture that broke under normal service—for example, when you were chewing.
If you have quality dentures that broke due to some accident, a repair may be worthwhile, if they can be restored to their previous level of function.
When you come into our office Dr. Adam Hahn will look at your current dentures and let you know whether repair or replacement is a better option.
