broken dentures

It can be very inconvenient to have your denture break and just as worrying as when one of your natural teeth develops an issue.

Why do dentures break?

The answer is simple, it is the wear and tear we put them to, every day.

Even if you are very careful with your dentures, like anything else, daily use will weaken your dentures. Eating food, hot and cold and acidic and even the saliva that occurs naturally in your mouth takes its toll and increases the chance of your denture breaking.

Increasing age being changes

As we age, like a lot of other bits of us, our mouths change shape and your denture might not fit as well as it originally did. When the denture becomes less stable it will shift around more and that might result in cracks and breaks.

A mishap

It is common for a denture to be broken after being dropped or for one hundred and one different reasons.

If your denture develops a crack or breaks:

If you have had a break or your denture has broken then contact us at Emergency Dentist London. Although there are denture repair kits you can buy, we would not recommend them for a long lasting repair and your denture might suffer further damage as a result of a DIY attempt at repair.

How we can help with your broken denture:

Often, depending on what the damage to the denture is, your dentist will be able to fix it in one appointment. If the damage is more severe, however, it may need to be sent off for repair. If the reason that your denture is broken is because it no longer fits properly your dentist might organise a new, better fitting one.
