One of the most severe dental emergencies, especially for older patients, is broken dentures. If your dentures break, chewing and talking can become difficult.
At Sayers Dental Aesthetic & Implants, we ensure not only the health of your natural teeth but also the function of your restorations.

If your dentures happen to break, we are here to serve you. We offer same-day emergency care so you can restore your smile in no time!

Causes of Denture Breakage

Many things can result in denture breakage, such as:

Natural wear

All dental restorations break at some point in time, and dentures are not exempted. Although they’re constructed to be durable, the wear and tear of chewing, biting, grinding, and other teeth functions can cause them to be damaged.

Accidents

Accidents can happen to anyone anytime. Even the most cautious person may experience an accident. One example is breakage from accidentally dropping a denture while cleaning it.

Improper use

Your dentures have limits. To maximise their function, you have to use them with extra care. For example, using your dentures outside their intended functions or abusing them can cause breakage.

Poorly-fitted dentures

Poorly-fitted dentures can be due to either by progressive bone loss or poor dental work. If you feel any discomfort while wearing your dentures, visit your dentist immediately.

What To Do If Your Dentures Break

If your denture breaks, call your Hoppers Crossing dentist as soon as possible to book a denture repair appointment. There are denture repair kits available in the market, but we don’t advise using them.

Repairing your dentures at home may cause more problems in the future. Proper denture repair requires expert knowledge and skill, as well as specialised equipment. If you attempt a temporary repair of your denture at home, we may not be able to repair the denture.

Call your Hoppers Crossing dentist as soon as possible to have your dentures repaired. If the damage is not so serious, your Hoppers Crossing dentist may fix it in the office right away.

If the dentures are damaged or if they don’t fit you well, new measurements will be taken for your new dentures.

Dental Restoration Repair in Hoppers Crossing

Repairing your damaged dental restoration depends on the severity of the damage. If the damage is minor, your Hoppers Crossing dentist can easily fix it within the day. There are some cases in which a new dental restoration is called for.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the causes of denture breakage?

Dentures are delicate and can easily break. Dropping them is the number one cause of breakage. Sayers Dental Aesthetic & Implants only uses high quality, impact-resistant materials that will not break as easily as denturers constructed from cheaper materials. Other causes of broken dentures include chewing very hard foods, loosely fitting dentures, incorrect storage or cleaning, and attempts to adjust or repair your own dentures. Also, aged and worn dentures are more prone to breakage.

What should I do if my denture is broken?

At Sayers Dental Aesthetic & Implants, we understand how important your dentures are to you. Call us right away when your denture breaks or if a tooth comes off the denture. We will repair your broken denture professionally. Please, NEVER try to fix your dentures by yourself because you may cause irreparable damage that ruins them permanently.

Some dentures, especially those that have been used for a long time, may need to be replaced if they crack or break. The friendly, experienced team at Sayers Dental Aesthetic & Implants is always here to help with any problem, whether your dentures need to be fixed or replaced.
