IMPORTANT: Aimed at the general public, the Bücco Guide is a general educational guide. Its content presents some of the most common dental practices. However, there are many approaches and philosophies in dentistry and your dentist / specialist will be able to advise you on what he believes to be the most appropriate for your oral health. Do not hesitate to consult a dentist / specialist for more information.
What to do with broken, chipped or cracked dentures
If your prosthesis is damaged, it is very important not to try to fix it yourself. It is best to consult a denturist because he or she has the suitable materials to repair it. For example, instead of using a (toxic) glue, denturists use acrylic that is designed for prostheses.

Adding structure to a partial prosthesis
Following the extraction of one or more teeth, it is possible to readjust your existing partial prosthesis, whether it is made of metal or acrylic. We can add a tooth and/or a hook on your prosthesis. This work can be done before extraction if it is planned or after the healing period, i.e. 1 to 2 weeks after the loss of the tooth. The work is done on site in our laboratory and takes a few hours to complete.
