Do's and Don'ts on Repairing a
Cracked or Broken Dentures..
Crazy Glue, Super
glue or any other brand of cyanoacrylate glue is ok to use as a
"very temporary" fix to a split denture;
Cyanoacrylate based adhesives weaken in
the presence of warm moist environments therefore, will only
last temporarily in the mouth. Most manufactures of these types
of adhesives themselves recommend warm water as a way to
dissolve an accidentally glued body part. If you do decide to
use a Cyano. based glue to repair your denture, be sure to
"practice fit" the split denture several times before gluing it.
An improperly positioned repair will weaken the suction bond
that a properly fitting denture has with your gums. It can also
cause sores or cutting of your gum tissue. It is highly
recommended that the repair be done by a dental professional.
Some areas allow dental labs or denturists to perform these
repairs without the need of a dentist present.
