It’s best to try and not repair your broken dentures yourself as this can negatively impact the suction they rely on to stay in place. If you’re worried about cost, don’t be. The most you’ll pay for an emergency appointment is £99. Patients will only be required to pay for the dentist’s time.
“I lost my front two teeth in an accident when I was a teenager and have had a partial denture for years. It broke over the weekend and after trying and trying to get through to my dentist, I booked with Maida who saw me within the hour as I live just round the corner. Thank heavens as thought I’d have to miss work on Monday.”

If you’ve just lost a tooth off of your denture this is 100% repairable. However, in cases, where the denture is split into two, this might be more of a complex repair.
Dentures serve their purpose by creating suction against the gum to keep them stable. When this integrity is damaged, the suction may suffer as a result. Therefore, seeing our prosthetic dentist in these cases can either work towards a successful repair, or craft better-fitting, stronger dentures that are more reliable.
For dentures to serve their purpose, a perfect fit inside the mouth is necessary to allow them to remain stable by creating suction against the gum. When the integrity of the denture is damaged, the suction can also suffer. A professional must conduct the repair and secure a good fit of the dentures.
Tooth pain is an indication that something is wrong. Sometimes, the pain might range from mild to severe, which can come and go. However, it can be disturbed or made worse when eating and drinking.
As dentists, we know that this pain gets progressively worse the more it is ignored, and it can often lead to more costly dental fixes and repairs.
Our advice is to see an emergency dentist as soon as you can.
It’s recommended that if your dentures break not to wear them. If they break or crack when they’re in your mouth remove them immediately to avoid choking on the plate or denture. Next, rinse your mouth carefully and ensure that you do not swallow.
