Is this the time to start panicking? No, certainly not, but when it happens, don’t delay and get in touch with your dentist as soon as possible. Once he sees you, he’ll surely be prioritising the required denture repair anderson work. Alternatively, it could just happen that the state of your dentures has reached its point of no return. It is damaged beyond repair. And still no reason to panic.
Look at it this way. See it as a fresh occasion to start over. And when you do that you’ll be beginning with something brand new. Even so, when dentures are repaired it can be like that too. Brand new. Dental technologists have the skills and materials to repair the denture to the point that it is not likely to break for another long while. But you also need to bear in mind that your dentures can be as fragile as the enamel on your real teeth.
Just because the teeth are false does not mean that you don’t have to apply the same amount of care as you would have to your real teeth. The denture will also lose its natural color over time. And it will become brittle. All because of not brushing regularly. These days, new dentures seem like a good idea. Because now you can get those that can be glued in if you will. This is a temporary resin (it can be removed) that allows the denture to stay fixed.
This goes some way in alleviating any awkwardness with eating and speaking and the possible embarrassment. Should you be panicking? No. But perhaps there are those of you who should. That is to say that you haven’t been brushing and flossing as you should.
