Stress, Bone Loss, Cracks & More
Reasons for Needing Denture Repair Services
There are several reasons why your dentures may break. One of the most common causes of denture fracture is wear and tear over time. Although dentures are made to last, they do often require replacement every 5-8 years. Also, over time, the size and form of your jawbone and gum tissues may change as well, making dentures easily prone to fracture. Following many years of use, breaking may also be due to the stress of chewing and daily wear. Bone loss can be another culprit for denture breakage. As a result, dentures move around in the mouth and may be unable to adjust to your mouth and resulting in a poor fit. This poor fit may cause your denture to crack or break. Lastly, your dentures may break simply due to an accidental fall or sometimes as a result of your dog’s mischief!

What can cause my dentures to break?
Even with the proper care, the most common cause of denture fracture is wear and tear over time. Dentures are made to last, however, they may still need to be repaired over the years. The stress of chewing and daily wear is a common cause of denture fractures. Fractures and breakage may also occur as a result of the size of your jawbone and gum tissue changing, or it may be due to bone loss.
Dentures may also break simply due to accidental circumstances such as dropping them or a pet getting a hold of them.
Whatever the case may be, our clinic is happy to help with any of your denture repair needs.

How does a denture repair work?
Depending on the severity of the denture fracture, our denturist may be able to add back material to efficiently repair the damage and adjust the fit. Dentures are mainly made from acrylic resin which means more acrylic can be expertly added to the denture to bond any fractures or broken areas.
Aside from fractures, common types of denture repair include relining, rebasing, and adjustments. Denture relining is needed when dentures begin to change over time, which is a natural occurrence. Rebasing is a form of denture repair that replaces the entire base of the dentures to make them more stable. Adjustments are made to dentures to help them fit properly and more comfortably.
Even with the proper care, denture repair is needed for reasons beyond the control of the wearer.
Contact our clinic to find out more about the denture repair services that we offer.
Can I repair my dentures if the damage seems minor?
It is not recommended to try any repairs yourself, no matter how small they may seem. Do-it-yourself repairs can actually cause more damage to the dentures, making for more expensive problems down the line. Our denture repair services can be done in one day, so you don’t have to worry about being without your dentures for too long.
