How to Manage a Broken Denture
Do you wear a denture and are struggling to perform everyday tasks
because it is broken? While not a life-threatening situation, it is something
that needs to be taken care of immediately. When you have a broken
denture, eating and speaking get tougher and it gets increasingly irritating
to get through routine daily activities.
What Can Be the Causes for A Broken Denture?
Patients are often recommended to change their dentures every seven
years. Dentures are brittle in nature but the shape of the face keeps
changing with age which causes the denture to lose its structural integrity
over time and makes it difficult to use. Ill-fitted dentures often lead to more
pressure on certain parts of the denture which may cause cracks or breaks
Dentures break if they are not changed or maintained regularly. Similarly,
chewing on hard foods like candies can erode the denture. Then there is the
inevitable wear and tear that will leave the dentures damaged.
Can A Broken Denture Be Repaired?
Yes, dentures can be repaired. The process depends entirely on the damage
needing to be fixed. Cracked and slightly eroded dentures are easy fixes.
But those with major problems require quite a lot of effort and time. If the
damage is too severe, it might simply be more cost effective and more timesaving to buy a completely new piece.
