Partial Denture Repair

All types of dentures have a significant beneficial impact on the wearer’s daily life, but the fragile nature of dentures means they are all susceptible to damage. That’s why our denture repair service extends to partial dentures, as well as complete dentures.

We understand that going without your partial denture for any length of time can be problematic. Therefore, getting a professional repair as soon as possible is a top concern. With our emergency denture repair service, our experts are on hand to help.

Partial Denture Problems

Partial denture damage is commonly caused by dropping the denture onto a hard surface during handling and cleaning. The drop can crack or break the denture plate, chip or break an artificial tooth, or bend or snap a part of the metal frame or clasps. Partial dentures undergo a lot of strain during daily use and can be damaged through wear and tear, leading to a poor fit. For emergency denture repairs or to discuss any problems you may have with your partial denture, and to make an appointment, call us anytime on 07957 719 377 or complete our online form to receive a callback.

Question & Answers

A crack in the acrylic material of the denture plate can be bonded back together. More acrylic material can be applied to bond cracks to reinforce the plate. If the plate is completely broken, it may be possible to bond it back together depending on the break. Although the strength of the repaired denture will be compromised. In the case of a chipped or broken artificial tooth, the technician will remove the damaged tooth and replace it with a new one that is colour matched to the existing teeth in your denture.

Partial dentures usually incorporate metal clasps to hold the denture securely in place. The metal clasps and the metal framework of the denture can also be damaged, but can generally be repaired by a dental technician with specialist equipment.

Even if you have most of your natural teeth, gaps in your teeth can still cause problems with eating, speech and confidence. That’s where a partial denture comes in. A partial denture is designed to fit neatly within your oral cavity and replace just one missing tooth or a few missing teeth, helping you regain the appearance and functionality of a full set of teeth. A partial denture is usually held in place by metal clasps, whereas complete dentures fit closely to your gums and replace all your upper or lower teeth.

We offer a same day service where a dental technician will come to your home and repair your denture in our mobile dental lab, or you can visit us in our Forest Gate clinic and wait for your denture to be fixed. We try to make the service as speedy as possible, so there are no forms to fill out, and the actual repair could be completed within 1 hour, depending on the damage.

Remove, rinse and gently clean the partial denture each day with a specialist denture cleaning brush or a regular, soft-bristled toothbrush. Ensure you keep up a good oral hygiene routine to maintain healthy teeth, gums and bone.  To minimise the risk of damage to your denture from a drop, place a folded towel down before removing and handling the denture. Otherwise, you can clean your denture over a sink filled with water. For more expert advice information, take a glance at our denture care advice page.

Don’t be tempted to fix a partial denture yourself. Unless you have the correct knowledge and equipment, the repair will not be the same standard as a professional repair, and will merely leave you with poorly fitting temporary dentures. You also run the risk of damaging the denture beyond repair. Do not use superglue either, as it dissolves quickly in the mouth.
