What Our Denture Repair Process Looks Like

When your denture breaks, it's an emergency.

A denture being repaired quick by a skilled technician

When you visit Emergency Denture Care, you can rest assured you’re in good hands. We’re going to break down a real experience of a patient (we’ll call him Bill) from the moment he booked an appointment to the moment he left satisfied with a well-fitted, repaired denture!

Bill [our patient] called our office in the morning with a broken denture that was completely in half from the night before. Our Bonita Springs, FL office has an in-house lab, so they were able to fix the denture right there for Bill. They made an appointment for him to come in at 10:00 am and sent him his paperwork electronically to speed up the check-in process.

When Bill arrived, he was seated in one of the operatories, and the doctor came in to do a quick exam of Bill’s gums to ensure everything was healthy. Once the doctor confirmed his oral health, Bill was walked through the process of what would be done and was told to return around noon to pick up his repaired denture. The denture was then taken to the back by the in-office lab technician, where it was prepped, new acrylic was added to the fracture, and both pieces were bonded together like new. The denture was then polished, high-shined, and placed in the ultrasonic cleaner.

Bill returned at noon, was seated in a chair, and the doctor placed the denture to ensure everything looked and fitted well. Bill was very happy that the denture was repaired in the office, the same day, and did not have to be sent out to a lab, where it may have taken longer to repair.

Every appointment and patient will have a different experience depending on the repairs needed and the health of their gums, but we can often repair dentures on the same day, like in Bill’s case. Missing a tooth off a denture, an ill-fitting denture, or a broken denture can all be repaired here in-house!
