Even with correct care, daily use weakens dentures. Hot, cold, and acidic foods - even your own saliva - can wear them down, which further risks the plastic teeth breaking and falling out.
As you get older, your mouth naturally changes shape, which causes the denture to shift around. This lack of stability places excess pressure on the denture, resulting in cracks and breakage.
Dentures are commonly broken by accident. They can easily be dropped or misplaced when they’re taken out in the evenings. They may even fall out of your mouth and break.
Book an appointment with your dentist to have your denture repaired. We don’t recommend denture repair kits. Correctly repairing a denture requires expert knowledge, skill, and materials. A temporary DIY repair may further damage the dentures, preventing them from being repaired professionally.
Depending on the type of break, your dentist may be able to fix your denture in the same appointment. In other cases, it may need to be sent away. Your dentist will discuss your options with you while you wait for your denture to be repaired.
If your denture no longer fits well, your dentist may reline the denture, or even create a new one with a better fit. Your dentist may also recommend dental implants with a fixed denture. These custom-made dentures are more comfortable and stable than regular ones.
