Home » Broken Dentures
Dentures endure a lot of abuse: chewing, grinding, dropping. Whether because of an accident, regular wear and tear, or because of a poor dental job, dentures eventually break or wear out.

Common Causes of Broken Dentures

There are several things that can lead to broken dentures, such as:

Natural wear and tear

Although made from strong materials, all dental restorations have a breaking point, and dentures are not an exception.

Despite their durability, years of chewing, biting, grinding, and other teeth functions can cause them to wear out.

Accidents

Accidents can happen anytime, anywhere. Even the most cautious person may have an accident. Damage from dentures accidentally falling while cleaning is one example.

Abuse

Dentures have their limitations. To maximise their functions, you have to follow precautionary measures. For example, using your dentures for other than their normal functions or abusing their limits can cause them to break.

Ill-fitting dentures

Ill-fitting dentures can be caused by progressive bone loss or poor dental work. If you feel discomfort while wearing your dentures, visit your Leederville dentist immediately.

Broken Dentures: What to do?

Emergencies are unpredictable. However, alertness and caution can help lessen their effects. When cleaning your dentures, check for cracks and breakage. If there are cracks on your dentures, do not attempt to fix them by yourself.

You might think about using denture repair kits available in drugstores, but this only worsens the damage. It takes the skill and knowledge of a professional to repair your dentures.

Call your Leederville dentist immediately to repair your dentures as soon as possible. If the damage is minor, your dentist may repair it in the office immediately. If the dentures are broken or if they don’t fit you perfectly, new measurements will be taken for your new dentures.
