How can dentures become damaged?

The main way dentures are damaged is by dropping them when they are being removed or inserted. Dentures can also become weakened and break if they no longer fit the mouth properly, because of gum shrinkage and change of shape. Subjecting dentures to too much force over a long period of time through teeth grinding, for example, is another cause of damage.

 

Tips for preventing damage to your dentures

Stand over a towel or a sink of water when removing, inserting or cleaning dentures, which will cushion the fall if you do accidentally drop them.     Always take care when handling your dentures to prevent damage.

 

Can they be repaired?

A Dental Technician can usually repair cracked or fractured dentures, insert strengtheners into dentures and remove stains. They can also repair chips in the artificial teeth or replace ones that have broken off. If your dentures are quite old and have broken several times, it may be necessary to have a new set made. Dentures that have had teeth added or fractured multiple times are generally not very comfortable to wear as they no longer fit that well.

 

How long does it take to repair damaged dentures?

The time it takes to repair a denture depends on how badly it is damaged. Replacing or repairing a damaged tooth can normally be done by a Dental Technician in 30 to 45 minutes. If the denture has suffered a more serious fracture, however, it will take longer to repair. The Dental Technician’s ability to repair a denture depends on the extent of the damage, how old the denture is and what condition it was in before it was broken.

 

What should you do if your denture breaks?

If possible, keep all the broken pieces together. Don’t use super glue or try and repair the denture yourself, as this often makes the denture unrepairable. It is always the best option to consult a Dental Profesional, who will be trained to solve your problem.
