Many of our Denture repairs can often be done in a few hours depending on the degree of difficulty and our work load. We do our best to save you the embarrassment of going without your teeth any longer than you need, but we must follow the Infection Control guidelines for everyone’s benefit.
At James W Sextonwe thoroughly scrub and soak your dentures with the recommended disinfectants, before they enter the laboratory and your dentures are polished with fresh disinfected buffs and fresh compounds.
Dentures usually break for a reason and we generally find most breakages are because people keep their old dentures well beyond their use by date.
Dentures are not just repaired with glue as most people think. Before our Technicians can touch them and after they have finished repairing the denture, it must be thoroughly cleaned and soaked in a disinfectant.
We then generally need to pour a plaster model, prepare (grind) the broken surfaces, mix new acrylic and pour it into the join. This needs to spend time in a pressurised curing unit, then when cured trimmed and polished.
If you have an urgent repair the best thing is to phone for an appointment on (02) 6021 7236 to ensure we can arrange our work load to help you in the fastest time possible.
