Broken Dentures

DENTAL EMERGENCY

Same Day Emergency Appointment Avaialble

A broken denture stops many from their normal eating and speaking habits. If your dentures break, call your Kellyville Ridge dentist as soon as possible.

We are more than happy to discuss your options with you and help you get back on track.

One of the most serious problems with full dentures is prosthesis fracture (a complicated way of saying a break).

It is a more common occurrence in the upper denture but it can also occur with the lower denture.

Broken dentures not only make everyday tasks such as chewing, eating, swallowing, and talking difficult, but can also be embarrassing.

After all, dentures always break into pieces at worst possible times. It could be an important presentation at work, a first date, or a social gathering with a big photo-opportunity.

    Causes of Broken Dentures

    Circumstances that can result in broken dentures include:

    Natural wear and tear

    All dental restorations have a breaking point, and dentures are not exempt. Although they’re made to be durable, the wear and tear of chewing, biting, grinding, and other functions can damage them.

    Accidents involving the mouth

    Accidents can happen anytime. Even the most careful person may have an accident. One example is damage from accidentally dropping a denture while cleaning it.

    Improper use

    Your dentures have usage limits. To maximise their function, use them with extra care. For example, using your dentures outside their functions or abusing them can result in breakage.

    Poor fit

    Poorly-fitted dentures can be a result of either progressive bone loss or poor dental work. If you feel uncomfortable while wearing your dentures, visit your Kellyville Ridge dentist immediately.

    What to do

    If your denture breaks, call your Kellyville Ridge dentist as soon as possible to book an emergency appointment. Denture repair kits are available in drugstores, but we don’t recommend using them.

    Repairing your dentures at home may cause future problems. Proper denture repair needs expert knowledge and skill, as well as specialised tools.

    If you attempt to repair your denture at home, we may not be able to repair the denture at our office.

    Call your Kellyville Ridge dentist as soon as possible to get your dentures fixed. If it’s minor damage, your dentist may repair it on the same day.

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

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What causes denture breakage?

    Dentures are fragile and can easily break. Dropping them is the most common cause of breakage. Dental Cube Kellyville Ridge only uses high-quality, impact-resistant materials that will not break as easily as dentures constructed from cheaper materials.

    Other causes of broken dentures include chewing on very hard foods, looseness, incorrect storage or cleaning, and adjustment or repair attempts. Also, aged and worn dentures are more prone to breakage.

    How do I know if it’s time to reline my dentures?

    If the dentures no longer fit as they once did, you may need to have the base of the denture refitted.
