Replacing a Broken Denture

Depending on how severely your denture has broken, we can often repair them the same day. If we are unable to fix your dentures in one office visit, we will send them to our lab. Our providers will be happy to discuss repair or replacement options with you.

If your dentures did not fit well in the past, you might likely need a whole new set. It is possible to repair or reline an older set of dentures, but if the dentures are old and heavily worn, it may be time to replace them. Over time, most patients who wear dentures will lose bone in the jaw. This problem worsens over time and leads to poorly fitting dentures. If your dentures are rocking, or you have trouble keeping them in place, check out our teeth replacement page.

Permanent Dentures

Dentures that are made the same day as tooth extractions offer a convenient and affordable option for patients wanting to replace all of their teeth. Although patients receive, a denture set the same day, in the long-run most patients struggle with the fit and function of immediate dentures. Permanent dentures offer patients a more cost-effective option that is minimally invasive and gives patients the aesthetic and functional results they will be happier in the long run.

Cause of a Broken Denture

Over time, dentures encounter a significant amount of daily wear and tear. Pressure from chewing and biting and temperature changes from foods and liquids can contribute the general wear of your denture. This damage can lead to breakage as the integrity of the denture is compromised over time. Bone loss that occurs as we naturally age, after teeth are taken out, can cause dentures to fit more loosely. Bone loss can cause uneven pressure points on specific areas of the denture, leading to fractures. Accidentally dropping a denture is another common cause of damage.
