A set of dentures is a long-term solution to replace missing teeth. In fact, many dental professionals agree that patients can expect to enjoy their appliance for five to ten years.
However, dentures are not immune to damage. So, when dentures break, it's crucial to repair dentures. Otherwise, your appliance can sustain further damage that compromises your oral health (including your gums, jawbone, and remaining teeth!).

If you're still not sure if you need denture repair, then let our team know. We will assess your appliance and make recommendations on how to best repair broken dentures.
Damaged dental appliances can take a toll on your oral health. For example, ill-fitting dentures can cause painful gum irritation and rub the enamel off of your existing teeth, which can lead to tooth decay. Therefore, repairing your denture is just as important as visiting a dentist regularly.
At Yukon Dentistry, our dentists and denturists take pride in the exemplary denture repair that we offer our patients when they visit our clinic. Here are just a few ways that we care for your appliances:
A quick appointment with our team will help us determine which repair service you'll need.
If it's an emergency, denture repair can be done at home using a denture repair kit. However, at-home emergency denture repairs are only a temporary fix. This means that you'll still need to see a qualified denturist for proper care. Nonetheless, dentist-approved denture repair kits will do in a pinch.
Never use super glue or other adhesives that are not dentist-approved to fix broken dentures. These substances may be toxic and harmful to the delicate tissues of the mouth.
