Broken Dentures Norlane Geelong

One of the most severe dental emergencies, especially for older patients, is broken dentures.

If your dentures break, chewing and talking can become difficult.

At Norlane Dental Aesthetics and Implants, we ensure not only the health of your natural teeth but also the function of your restorations.

If your dentures happen to break, we are here to serve you.

We offer same-day emergency care so you can restore your smile in no time!

Causes of Denture Breakage

Several things can result in denture breakage, such as:

Z Natural wear

All dental restorations come to a breaking point, and dentures are not an exception. Although they’re made to be durable, episodes of chewing, biting, grinding, and other teeth functions can cause them to wear out

Z Accidents

Accidents can happen anytime. Even the most cautious person may experience an accident. One example is breakage from accidentally dropping a denture while cleaning it

Z Improper use

Your dentures have limitations. To maximise their use, you have to use them with extra care and caution. For example, using your dentures for outside their usual functions or abusing them can cause breakage

Z Ill-fitting dentures

Ill-fitting dentures can be caused either by bone loss or poor dental work. If you feel uncomfortable with your dentures, visit your dentist immediately

What Your Norlane Dentist Can Do?

Although dentures are a serviceable missing-tooth replacement option, the permanence and natural look of dental implants make them a great choice.

Norlane Dental Aesthetics and Implants offers high-quality and durable dental implants as replacements for missing teeth.

If properly cared for, dental implants can last years, and sometimes even for life! This means costs can be lower in the long term since dentures, in comparison, will need replacements frequently.

Broken Dentures in Norlane Geelong

If you’re suffering from dental pain and require immediate treatment, call our dental team for an emergency appointment.

Don’t postpone seeing the dentist if you are facing even a mild toothache. If untreated, the condition will escalate and may cause further nerve damage, abscesses, and spread the infection to the body.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes dentures to break?
Dentures are delicate and can easily break. Dropping them is the number one cause of breakage. Norlane Dental Aesthetics and Implants only uses high quality, impact-resistant materials that will not break as easily, compared to cheaper materials. Other causes of broken dentures include chewing very hard foods, loosely fitting dentures, incorrect storage or cleaning, and attempts to adjust or repair your own dentures. Also, aged and worn dentures are more prone to breakage.
What should I do if my denture breaks?
At Norlane Dental Aesthetics and Implants, we understand how important your dentures are to you. Call us right away when your denture breaks or if a tooth comes off the denture. We will repair your broken denture professionally. Please, NEVER try to fix your dentures by yourself because you may cause irreparable damage that ruins them permanently. Patients who try over-the-counter products or crazy toxic glue and those that try YouTube DIY tutorials, often end up having to replace their dentures. Also, it’s not a good idea to wear broken dentures, as this can cause oral health problems.

Some dentures, especially those that have been used for a long time, may need to be replaced if they crack or break. The friendly, experienced team at Norlane Dental Aesthetics and Implants is always here to help with any problem, whether your dentures need to be fixed or replaced.
