Broken Dentures Leederville

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:

Z Natural wear and tear

Although made from h3 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.

Z 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.

Z Abuse

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

Z 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.

Call your Leederville dentist immediately to have your dentures checked as soon as possible.

What Your Leederville Dentist Can Do?

Although dentures are a serviceable missing-tooth replacement option, the permanence and natural look of dental implants make them a great choice.

Dentists on Vincent offers high-quality and durable dental implants as replacements for missing teeth.

With proper care, dental implants can last years, and sometimes even for life! This means costs can be lower in the long term since dentures, in comparison, will need replacements frequently.

Why Choose Dental Implants Over Dentures?

Dental implants cost more upfront than dentures, and therefore many people choose dentures without further investigating dental implants as an option.

When you consider the additional costs of dentures, including cleaning solutions, adhesives, repairs, and denture replacement, implants are a better financial solution and well worth the extra upfront cost.

With so many things at stake, like your overall health and self-esteem, we suggest you consult your Leederville dentist before reaching a decision.

At the end of the day, your dentist is your best resource to help you decide what option works best for you and your mouth.

Remember that you may decide to start with dentures and eventually progress to dental implants, but dental implants are a more permanent option.
