When most denture wearers think of emergency denture repairs, the first thing that comes to mind is a to drive to a clinic. You think of having to find a clinic that's open and one that will accept your insurance. You also think about the drive you will have to make to the clinic that is available. There is another option called mobile emergency denture repair. You may not have heard of it, or if you have, you may not know much about the services they provide. Here are a few things you may not know, but should, about mobile emergency denture repair options in your area.
Office or Home
One of the key points you may not know about mobile emergency denture repairs is these services will come to either your home or office. This is ideal if you are at the office and you have a crack in your dentures or other issues that occurs during lunch. You may be fine staying in your cubicle while your dentures are fixed, but the thought of going out of the office with broken dentures is what stresses you out. You also may not be able to leave in time to go to a traditional denture clinic or office, which adds to the benefit of using a mobile option.
If you are a homemaker or retired, then you may not have a vehicle or the time to get to the clinic. This means your mobile denture service can come to your home and work with your schedule instead of you having to work with theirs.
You may have had your dentures for several months or years and then notice they aren't fitting as well. This can be an annoyance that leads to pain from the ill-fitting dentures. The issue is that you may not be able to get an appointment with your dentist or denture clinic for several days, and in some extreme cases, several weeks. What you may not know about the mobile denture services is that they likely list fitting services as part of their emergency repair options. This means instead of having to wait and just deal with the pain, you can call the mobile service and get the issue taken care of as soon as possible.
Something you may not think of when it comes to emergency denture services and a mobile service is caregiver training. If you have a temporary home health nurse for your loved one that wears dentures, or if you have a family member that may not know how to care for dentures, a mobile emergency unit may be an ideal option. Some units do offer on-site training, and though it may cost a bit more to have it done, having someone come out and train that person in how to care for your loved ones dentures is a lot better than having those dentures broken beyond repair due to an avoidable mistake.
These are just three of the many things you may not know about your mobile denture repair service options. If you think this service may be ideal for you, contact your local mobile options for full menu options and rates.
There are more than two ways to straighten a smile, and in this blog, I plan to discuss them all. I plan to look at the differences between braces and retainers and explain why sometimes you may need them both. I look at the differences in cost, time commitment and efficacy. Personally, I have had a bit of experience with this subject – I had braces as a young teen, and I had a permanent retainer. In this blog, I discuss what I have learned, and I present all kinds of new information on the topic. Whether you are trying to make decisions for yourself or your child. I hope you find this information useful.
