Oh well buying a dremel today. I will frist use playdough as its safe,and bite down ,and make a mold of gum.Then pour plaster in mold.Then use plaster mold to sit broken denture on,while I cut a groove,and attach bent metal to hold denture.Then finish with denture repair plastic.Then remove and use reline it,where it touches the gum.I'll be damned if I spend $220 to have it repaired.

Thanks to the ACA you can use the $2500.00/yr your saving on health care insurance, and put it towards the $350.00 purchase, and still have better than two grand to play around with.

I guess this is supposed to be funny. Its certainly not helpful to our fellow member.

alright cemented the metal in,now to reline,I buy reline it,at the drug store.Sand area,and clean with alcohol and dry.Then take liquid super glue,and wet area for liner,last longer that way. As you age with dentures the lower jaws,wears down.This cause's denture to dig in sides of gums,where cheek,and tounge are.Liner elevates the denture where it should be.And if like me bought the cheap plastic dentures,they hurt.The liner is flexible and makes them feel better.
