Denture Repair

Dentures are incredibly durable, but they may require maintenance or occasional repairs to maintain their quality, functionality, and aesthetics. Different levels of care and maintenance may be required throughout the life of your dentures, depending on damage or issues relating to comfort or function.

Common Reasons for Denture Repair

There are several reasons why your dentures may require repair:

  • Cracks or fractures can occur in the denture base.
  • Teeth may chip, break, wear down or simply break off.
  • Dentures can become worn or ill-fitting due to changes in your mouth structure.
  • Staining or discolouration of the denture material can also occur.

If you experience any of these issues, it's crucial to seek professional help promptly to prevent further damage and maintain your oral health.

The Risks of At-Home Denture Repair Kits

While it may be tempting to use an at-home denture repair kit, we strongly advise against it. These kits can cause more harm than good and can lead to further breakage.

They can lead to improper alignment of the denture, affecting its fit and function. At-home repair attempts may damage the denture material or remaining natural teeth, leading to discomfort or irritation in your mouth.

At-home repair should only be considered a temporary measure until you can visit a professional dentist.

How to Prevent Denture Damage

While denture repair is always an option, prevention is key to extending the life of your dentures. Handle your dentures with care, avoiding drops on hard surfaces- clean over a sink full of water.

Brush your dentures daily with a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive cleanser. Soak your dentures overnight in a cleansing solution to keep them moist and clean.

Visit your dentist regularly for checkups and professional cleaning. Address any signs of poor fit or discomfort promptly. By following these simple guidelines, you can help your dentures last longer and maintain their optimal function and appearance.
