Causes of Denture Breakage
Several things can result in denture breakage, such as
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
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
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
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 To Do If Your Dentures Break
If your denture breaks, call your Norlane dentist as soon as possible to book a denture repair appointment. There are denture repair kits available in the market, but we don’t advise using them.
Repairing your dentures at home may cause more problems in the future. Proper denture repair requires expert knowledge and skill, as well as specialised equipment. If you attempt a temporary repair of your denture at home, we may not be able to repair the denture
Call your Norlane dentist as soon as possible to have your dentures repaired. If the damage is minor, your dentist may repair it in the office immediately. If the dentures are broken or if they don’t fit you perfectly, new measurements will be taken for your new dentures
Dental Restoration Repair in Norlane
Repairing your damaged dental restoration depends on the severity of the damage. If the damage is minor, your Norlane dentist can easily fix it within the day. There are some cases in which a new dental restoration is called for
