Broken Dentures

Broken Dentures Emergency Cardiff A broken denture is a serious concern that can stop you from normal eating and speaking habits.

If your dentures break make sure to contact your Cardiff dentist immediately.

We would be happy to discuss options with you and help you get back on track in no time.

One of the most serious accidents to full dentures is prosthesis fracture. It is more common with the upper denture but it can also occur with the lower denture.

Broken dentures not only make everyday chores such as chewing, eating, swallowing, and talking difficult, but it can also be very embarrassing.

After all, emergencies will always happen at the worst possible time.

It could be an important presentation at work, a first date, or a social occasion with a big photo-opportunity – whatever the circumstances are; you can guarantee that you are going to need your denture repaired quickly.

Causes of Denture Breakage

Several things can result in denture breakage, such as:

Natural deterioration

All dental restorations come to the point of breakage, and dentures are not an exception.

Although they’re made to be durable, years of strenuous chewing, biting, grinding, and other teeth functions can cause them to wear out.

Accidents

Accidents can happen anytime and anywhere. Even the most careful person may experience an accident. Breakage from dentures accidentally falling while cleaning is one example.

Improper use

Your dentures have limits. To maximise their use, you have to use them with extra care and caution.

For instance, using your dentures for outside their normal functions or abusing their limits can cause them to break.

Ill-fitting dentures

Poorly-fitted dentures can be caused either by progressive bone loss or shoddy dental work. If you feel uncomfortable with your dentures, visit your dentist immediately.

What To Do When Dentures Break

Emergencies are unpredictable. However, alertness and caution can help lessen their effects. Check for cracks when cleaning your dentures.

If you see cracks on your dentures, don’t attempt to fix them yourself.

You might attempt to use denture repair kits available in drugstores. This only makes the damage worse. It takes the expertise and knowledge of a dental professional to repair your dentures.

Call your dentist as soon as possible to have your dentures repaired. If the damage is minor, your Cardiff 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.
