Causes of Denture Breakage
Many things can result in denture breakage, such as:
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 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.
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 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.
