Orthodontist: Check with your orthodontist as to identify the cause of broken bracket. Many times it is the malocclusion from the opposing teeth causing the loose bracket. Selective grinding, occlusal adjustment, and bracket relocation should solve the problem. ...Read more

I had full top extraction 4 wks ago and was fitted with a temp denture. swelling is going down, and it is poor fitting. What can i do? Glue dont help.

Poor Fit: When a temporary denture is made, it is made by a lab that is "guessing" how you will heal following the extractions. I recommend that you have the DDS reline your denture with a material that will provide a fit according to your healing. I usually provide this a week or two following the extractions. ...Read more

What can I do if my tooth on my denture broke off is it safe to use superglue or gorilla glue?

What can I do if my tooth on my denture broke off is it safe to use superglue or gorilla glue?

A word of advice: I have found over the years that when patients try to adjust or fix their own partial or full dentures, not only does it not hold, but they often get themselves in more trouble and are sorry they every tried! what often is a simple fix, becomes a more complicated and more costly repair to those adventurous patients. ...Read more

What are some of the least expensive options for someone whose dentures won't stay in while eating even though they fit and are "glued" in?

What are some of the least expensive options for someone whose dentures won't stay in while eating even though they fit and are "glued" in?

See your dentist: Dentures not only have to fit but function harmoniously. If one area is hitting first, it causes the dentures to become unstable. Other causes include grinding of teeth or other oral habits. The least expensive way is to have your dentist check the bite. There are other options including relining of your dentures, new dentures, and implant retained dentures. ...Read more

Is it safe to use super glue containing cyanoacrylate to fix broken dentures?

Is it safe to use super glue containing cyanoacrylate to fix broken dentures?

Not really: Cyanoacrylate containers say avoid contact with skin. Not supposed to be used in the mouth. If you repair it with this, it also messes up the laboratory when you do bring it in for proper repair. ...Read more

Can I use superglue to glue in my dentures to my gums? Nothing seems to be working.

Can I use superglue to glue in my dentures to my gums? Nothing seems to be working.

Never: Consider the all-on-4 technique where 4 dental implants are placed into your jaw and then a special denture is modified to directly screw into the implants (by the dentist, not you) and you never remove them and can eat much more efficiently as the denture no longer rests on your gums. The dds will remove to clean on a periodic basis, you must keep it clean by brushing & waterpik device. ...Read more

Talk to dentist: It can take time to adapt to dentures, especially full dentures. Upper dentures usually stay in better than lower due to more bone, tissue surface, but if you continually have problems, get back to your dentist and list your issues. You might need a reline of the dentures- resurfacing of the insides to adapt better. Some dentures just don't want to hold that well without adhesive. ...Read more

Could it be healthy to use false teeth glue to keep my plastic retainers in?

Could it be healthy to use false teeth glue to keep my plastic retainers in?

NO: See your dentist for adjustment. Adhesive is not good to use for anything. If retainers do not fit, you certainly do not want to hold them in the wrong place. Good Luck . ...Read more

How much is an implantable denture?

Service: An "implantable denture" is not a commodity, like a can of soup. It's a service. Cost depends on your individual anatomical requirements, skill and training of the practitioner, number/placement/type of implants, region of the country, materials used in the prosthetic appliance, and so many other factors. Ask your Dentist for advice or referral to specialist(s). ...Read more
