Can you glue broken dentures back together?

No. never ever, EVER use super glue.

This may sound a little extreme and we don’t want to make you drop your dentures from our over use of the caps lock but it is very important not to glue your dentures yourself but rather take advantage of our walk in denture repair or mobile denture repair service.

This will not hold, it is extremely toxic, in no other circumstance would you choose to pour superglue in your mouth, so why start now? The gluing process can actually cause the denture to be irreparable because it’s very unlikely that you will glue it back together in exactly the right place and once it is glued to break it apart and fix it properly would require a new impression of your mouth from a dentist or clinical dental technician and they would then need to make a new denture for you.

Glue is harmful to your oral care

Super glue contains chemicals that may be toxic to you, and when you use these adhesives in your mouth, you’ll put them in direct contact with your oral tissues which can cause irritation to your mouth and gums, and it could potentially trigger an allergic reaction.

In some cases, glue sets using an exothermic reaction, which means that they generate heat. Unfortunately, the dentin tubules found within your teeth don’t tolerate this well, and can die which may result in the need for further dental work with a dental professional.

Dentures can be fixed / repaired by a dental technician in under an hour, we offer a same day denture repair service at a convenient location in our Bournemouth Laboratory.
