One of the most serious dental emergencies, especially for older patients, is broken dentures.
If you have broken dentures, chewing and talking can become difficult.
There are two types of dentures – the complete and partial dentures. When all of the teeth are lost, complete dentures are used.
When some natural teeth are left, partial dentures are used.
At DonEast Supreme Dental, we not only ensure the health of your natural teeth but also the functionality of your restorations.
If your dentures break, we are here to serve you. We offer same day emergency care so you can restore your smile in no time!
Causes of Broken Dentures
There are several reasons dentures break. One of the most common reasons is natural wear and tear. If worn for a long time, dentures wear out naturally.
Like other prosthetic devices, they get to break down after long cycles of chewing and daily wear.
Shrinkage of the jawbone and the gums makes the dentures loose. When the dentures don’t fit properly on the jaw, they may move around, and chances increase that they may break at a single wrong bite.
Dentures must be removed at night. This helps your gums and bones relax and keep your tongue from getting bitten while sleeping.
By just taking your dentures out of your mouth, there is a risk that you may accidentally drop or misplace them, which may result in breakage.
Poor dental job. Cases of imperfectly fitted dentures do occur. This is often due to a patient seeking a cheaper priced dental job.
This results in discomfort on the part of the wearer. It is like wearing too tight or too loose shoes.
It is not recommended to go to unlicensed individuals who make dentures for a low price. This might lead you to higher expenses when complications occur.
What To Do If Your Dentures Break
If your denture breaks, call your Doncaster East dentist immediately to request a denture repair appointment.
There are available denture repair kits in the market, but we don’t recommend using them. Fixing your dentures at home may cause more serious problems in the future.
Proper repair of a denture requires expert knowledge and skill as well as materials.
If you attempt a temporary repair of your denture at home, there is a chance that we may not be able to repair the denture.
