My lower dentures broke in half. What is the cost to repair my dentures?
Answer: Dental procedures and the cost to repair dentures vary widely based on many factors. Namely, difficulty and the condition of your dentures as well as your bone and gums. The best way to determine the cost of service is to visit with your dentist or prosthodontist. Also, then you may discuss the care you may need. The best solution is to return to the dentist or prosthodontist who made your dentures and have the broken denture repaired professionally.
It may seem easy to fix, but it is important that the repair is done correctly to prevent problems with chewing and to avoid any sore spots. The doctor also needs to check the denture and adjust it after it’s repaired. There is also a chance that the denture is too old and no longer fit closely to your gums, and you may need a new one.
