Denture Repair

Smile Confidently

Consistent maintenance appointments for refitting your denture every 2 years can significantly reduce the likelihood of breakages.

Causes of Broken Dentures:

  • Poorly Fitted Dentures: Ill-fitting dentures can create excessive pressure on certain areas, making them more susceptible to breakage. Regular check-ups with a denturist are essential to ensure proper fit.
  • Accidental Drops: One of the most frequent reasons for broken dentures is accidental dropping. Dentures are fragile and can easily break if they fall onto a hard surface.
  • Normal Wear and Tear: Chewing, biting, and cleaning can contribute to gradual wear and tear of your denture. Over time, dentures may weaken due to everyday use, leading to cracks or fractures.

Avoid DIY Repairs and Adjustments:

While you may be tempted to repair it yourself with superglue for a quick fix, you might end up causing major issues that can worsen the damage and complicate the professional repairs.

Preventive Measures:

Always handle dentures over a soft surface, such as a folded towel or water-filled basin, to minimize the impact if they are accidentally dropped.

When Is Denture Repair Necessary?

Though made to be very strong, dentures are subject to tremendous pressures when biting and chewing which can result in cracking, chipping or fracturing. This is often due to the denture fit as a result of bone changes.
