How many of you guys have gotten ready for a great interview, just to find you mouth hurts like hell because your dentures aren't fitting properly or they're broken. Denture repairs - DIY style - might seem like the cheaper option at the time, but you're paying for it in the long run.
The most popular product "sea bond quik fix" for denture repairs received great reviews for exactly what it promises, a quick fix. However, if you're looking to fix the problem completely, you're much better going a denture repair specialist, like Aesthetic Denture Clinic.
I'm not going to sit here and banging on about how you get what you pay for, but to me, fixing your dentures with a quick fix is the equivalent of putting some epoxy resin on the radiator of your car. Sure, the hole might not be spitting steam right away, but you're going to need a new radiator eventually and the damage will only get worse as you keep driving.
If we look at the packaging of some repair kits, you get more than one "repair" and the price is really quite low. After speaking to some people above 65 with dentures, I've decided that repair kits are pretty much a waste of money.
Question One: When fixing break and cracks, do you find that repair kits are a good cheap option?
Julie: It's not worth it in the end, you're paying $20 for a temporary fix, which then you need to buy more for the patch ups again. There are only so many times you can do this before you need to take it into a denture clinic to get it done properly.
Florence: Waste of time,waste of money.
Questions Two: Have you have tried to fix loose teeth with a repair kit?
Florence: Yes I have, they don't last very long before they fall out again. Plus the glue on some of the cheaper repair kits damage the dentures and it ends up costing you more in the end.
Tony: I have actually. It worked for a while but the tooth snapped off again in public whilst out to dinner with my grandchildren, which was embarrassing for them.
I'm sure some people think they can even fix their dentures with super glue. Check out the video above.
