Denture Repair

EMERGENCY APPOINTMENTS

Understanding proper denture care is necessary to preserve the patient’s overall oral health, as well as the length of time that the dentures will last.

Dentures require specific care that is different from the daily brushing and flossing routine.

The Dental Wellness Center of Florida is located in Brandon, Florida. To schedule your appointment and denture care consultation, call our office today. 

Proper Care for Removable Dentures 

When a patient has removable dentures, it is very important that they remove them each night and clean them thoroughly in order to maintain their optimal oral health. Food particles need to be rinsed off of the dentures and the appropriate specialty cleaner needs to be applied at least once each day. Everyday regular toothpaste is not to be used to clean dentures because the abrasive particles in the toothpaste can damage the base of the dentures. 

What to Expect at Your Denture Care Consultation

During a consultation, the Dental Wellness Center of Florida will discuss where to purchase the appropriate cleaning solution and what kind of cleaner is necessary to use daily. A specific toothbrush is also to be used to properly clean the dentures.

Make sure that you keep the dentures above a towel or a soft surface when cleaning them because if you drop the dentures on a hard surface, they can break. It is also very important to keep the dentures wet at all times. If the dentures become too dry, they have the potential to become brittle and break easily. Be sure to ask the dentist if it is okay to leave the dentures in cleaning solution overnight, and if this would affect the length of time that the dentures would last.

When you follow the dentist’s guidelines, you are sure to enjoy the benefits of a beautiful smile by keeping your set of dentures in the best shape possible. Regular checkups will help to maintain your oral health, and to make sure that your dentures are working as they should.

If the patient has non-removable dentures, then the dentist will instruct the patient on the appropriate cleaning regimen necessary to maintain the life of the dentures, as well as what the patient needs to do to maintain their oral health. 



In the event that you need to schedule an emergency appointment due to your dentures causing extreme discomfort and pain, please do not hesitate to call our office and schedule your appointment as soon as possible so that we can help you. We will do everything we can to fit you in as soon as possible in order for you to restore your oral health as quickly as we can.

  1. WHAT TO DO IF I DAMAGE MY DENTURES - Taking good care of your dentures is a priority for sure; but accidents happen, and if you damage your dentures and are in need of repair, please do not hesitate to call the Dental Wellness Center of Florida office staff located in Brandon, Florida. We are available to help you assess repairing your dentures as soon as possible.
  2. SCHEDULE EMERGENCY APPOINTMENT IMMEDIATELY - Please be sure to schedule an appointment immediately in order for our staff to determine the best way to fix them. When you first receive your dentures, it is not uncommon for patients to need to visit our office multiple times to make adjustments to their dentures as they settle into wearing them. As the patient’s gums adjust to wearing the dentures, adjustments are going to be necessary and there is nothing the patient is doing wrong when normal adjustments are needed. In the event of an emergency, please call our office today during normal business hours and we will schedule you a time to come and have your denture examined and repaired as quickly as possible.
  3. HELPFUL TIPS IF DENTURES HAVE BEEN DAMAGED - Patients should not try to repair their damaged dentures because they can do more harm than good and cause the damage to spread.                                                                                                                                 Here are some things that you can do if your dentures have been damaged before coming in for your dental appointment. 
                    * Bring in any broken pieces and wiring so that they may be used to repair the                        damaged dentures. 
                    * Dental wax can be used to repair any broken pieces, as well as help to stop the                        broken pieces from rubbing against your gums and causing irritation.                                     * Dental wax can serve as a temporary barrier until you can get to a dentist who can                          repair the damaged dentures. 
            
            You can also take your dentures out and soak them in their case while on your way to the             dentist office to have them repaired. You should not continue wearing damaged             dentures.
