Having problems with your denture? We can help!
Dentures are designed to be durable, but accidents can happen. Maybe you dropped your dentures while you were cleaning them or you bit down on an unexpected olive pit. When this happens, it’s important to have your dentures checked by an experienced dentist. Cracks and other damage may be difficult to discern just by looking at the dentures. Even minor changes in the way your dentures fit can lead to gum injury and infections. Small cracks can provide a breeding ground for bacteria, leading to bad breath.
Dr. Aygen is happy to examine your dentures and make any necessary repairs – even if your dentures were crafted by someone else. Many of our patients visit Sarasota in the winter and have other dentists in their northern hometowns. Dr. Aygen is happy to consult with your regular dentist and coordinate your care.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Dentures that are damaged or aren’t properly adjusted are more than just uncomfortable. They can also cause problems like sores on the gums and bad breath.
Accidents can easily happen. Whether your denture accidentally fell in the sink or you bit down on something that was harder than you expected, you shouldn’t have to wait for ages to get your dentures fixed.
Why is it important to fix dentures?
If you suspect that your dentures are no longer fitting correctly, please give us a call so that Dr. Aygen can take a look. You should also contact our office if your dentures have been dropped or had excessive pressure exerted on them in any way. Sometimes dentures can sustain damage that isn’t immediately visible, and even the smallest changes in the way they fit can quickly become uncomfortable or put your health at risk.
Call us to find out more about denture repair in Sarasota – even if we didn’t craft your dentures! Many of our patients are only in Sarasota over the winter, but having a dentist you can count near your winter home is important.
If you are in need of new dentures or you are considering dentures for the first time, talk to us. Dr. Aygen can craft esthetic and comfortable dentures, and we can even discuss implant-retained dentures for added stability and security!
While dentures are a popular (and inexpensive!) option for replacing teeth, some people do find that they can be frustrating. Dentures rely on suction for proper adherence, and while this tends to work well for the upper plate, it doesn't work quite as well for the lower plate. This means that your denture can become loose and shift in your mouth, or you might have to use sticky adhesives to get a better hold.
Dental Implant Secured Dentures
Securing dentures with dental implants is a surprisingly simple process and allows your dentures to fit securely, promoting a better ability to chew a variety of foods and eliminating embarrassing shifts. Additionally, if you choose to support your upper plate with dental implants, you can use a denture style that doesn't cover your entire upper palate, a feature many patients appreciate!
Dental implants do require that sufficient bone quality and quantity be available to properly support the denture. Dr. Aygen is happy to evaluate your bone structure and determine whether implants are a good choice for you. Even if you don't currently have sufficient bone, additional procedures like bone grafting can make you a candidate for implants in the future.

It's hard to imagine living without your teeth, but this is what you are facing when your dentures break! The first step if you find yourself in this situation is to contact your Sarasota Dentist right away. We can assess your situation and determine what your options are.
If your denture is missing a tooth, we may be able to repair it in our office for you.
If your denture is broken in half, it may require some time at the dental laboratory to be repaired. We can often coordinate this repair around your schedule so you are only without your teeth for a short period of time during the repair.
The worst case scenario is that your denture would have to be replaced if it is beyond repair; however, Dr. Aygen will go over all of your options with you so you make the best choice for your lifestyle and budget.
Regular checkups for your denture at least once a year can help ensure that it fits properly and can prevent breakages from occurring. It is typically when your denture is not fitting properly that damage happens.
Contact Sarasota Dental Arts right away if you are experiencing any problems with your denture. It's our goal to provide the best fitting, longest lasting, and most durable dentures possible. Our team can help you get back to normal quickly and easily, no matter what type of denture break you're experiencing!
One of the biggest complaints that we hear about dentures is that they come loose and don’t feel secure. This can create discomfort, make it difficult to chew foods properly, and even lead to embarrassment when speaking to others.
Dental Implant Retained Dentures
Using advanced dental techniques, we can strategically place dental implants and then craft dentures that lock into place. This is often a minimally invasive procedure. When your dentures are properly secured, you’ll be able to chew with comfort and confidence, which allows for a more varied diet filled with fresh, healthy, crunchy foods and, in turn, improved health.
Additionally, your confidence will be restored when you can speak in front of friends or coworkers without the fear of your dentures slipping at precisely the wrong moment.
Since your dentures remain securely in place, you won't have to worry about the discomfort and irritation that can be caused by loose dentures rubbing on sensitive gum tissue. You also won't have to worry about the expense and inconvenience of denture adhesives!
