It is our goal as COSMETIC SPECIALISTS IN DENTURISM to design and fabricate dentures that fit very well. Most of the time we are very successful due to the fact that new denture fit/conform to the shape of the mouth PERFECTLY AT FIRST.
It is a dental fact that the shape of the gums changes under the denture from the very moment dentures are being worn. Bone ridges, a.k.a. gums, get smaller and smaller. However, hard plastic of the denture does not change. After about two years, the difference between the shape of the denture and the shape of the mouth becomes very noticeable. Denture becomes very loose and paiful to wear. It begins to rock in the mouth. It may dislodge from the mouth at any time, particularly during eating, laughing, coughing. Loose, poor fitting dentures are prone to fracture. If this situation is not addressed, eventually denture breaks, usually at the most unexpected moment.
When your denture breaks, IT IS A DENTURE EMERGENCY. When your denture tooth breaks off the denture, IT IS A DENTURE EMERGENCY. When your denture causes pain and sores in your mouth, IT IS A DENTURE EMERGENCY. And, obviously, when your denture is lost/misplaced, IT IS , INDEED, A SERIOUS DENTURE EMERGENCY.

Temporary Reline-Tissue Conditioning
When gums are painful, red, swollen and sensitive to touch, the Denturist will place a TISSUE CONDITIONING material inside the denture. We may also employ LLLT to facilitate gums healing. As a result of our treatments, the denture can be worn without much of the discomfort because the material that is used to bring swollen gums to a healthy state is soft and medicated. It usually stays soft up to 4 weeks. Customary, the temporary reline and LLLT treatment are done before any permanent reline (hard or soft) is prescribed. Otherwise, if the permanent reline or a new denture is fabricated based on the impression of the swollen gums, the final result will not be an exact reproduction of the bone ridges, Consequently, the final denture will not fit well.
Dentures do not last forever. Usually they become loose after 2-5 years. As a result of their poor fit, dentures rock in the mouth. This constant flexing under patients load of chewing causes dentures to break. If the denture has porcelain teeth they break off the denture as a result of this flexing.
When you denture or tooth breaks, it can be professionally repaired by an expert within 1 hour. We have the equipment and the expertise to do it correctly and fast.
Home made repairs never work and here are the reasons. NOT TO DO THAT.
Do not Repair your Denture with Glue because…
While this may be a quick fix, using any kind of glue for denture repairs is poisonous. After the fixed by glue denture is placed in the mouth, tiny fragments of the glue loosen from being exposed to the hostile moist environment in the mouth. The constant rubbing of foods while eating and the movement of the tongue help the glue wear down. Consequently, the glue is absorbed with foods into a digestive system. The end result is a broken denture with fragments of dried glue on it and a poisoned digestive system.
Some glues contain violent solvents and will melt the acrylic resin around the edges. As a result, the denture will become distorted . This distortion will render the denture unwearable.
Other Super glues are water soluble, therefore the repair is NOT GOING TO LAST.
The Best Thing To Do: when your denture breaks, please take it to a Denture Specialist. In Cohen Cosmetic And Emergency Denture Clinic most broken dentures or broken off denture teeth are repaired within 1 hour.
