What Types of Repairs Can Fix Broken Dentures?

If you have dentures, then you are in good company. In 2020, almost 50 million Americans had dentures. Dentures can provide structure to your face, help you chew, and motivate you to smile. There are many pros and cons that come with dentures, but one downfall is that dentures even though they are made with hardy and strong material meant for wear and tear, can still break. If this happens to you, it is important to get help as soon as possible. As your jawbone naturally changes over time, your dentures may not fit the way that they were designed to.

Why Do Dentures Break?

What Repairs Fix Broken DenturesThere are reasons for dentures to break, just the way that there are several ways that natural teeth break. Breaks in your dentures can be minor or they can be severe. Depending on why your dentures were broken will determine which type of fix you will need. The following procedure is three common denture fixes:

  1. As time progresses the soft tissue in your mouth changes. The way your dentures fit can also change because they will not work for you the way they did when you first had them made. To have them positioned appropriately for where your mouth has aligned, relining will help.
  2. If your dentures are broken from cracks or they are just old and worn-out, rebasing may be what you need to get them back into good working order. Rebasing helps increases the stability of dentures by adding a new base.
  3. Your San Marcos denture repair dentist can make the appropriate adjustments so that they fit the way they were designed to do. Many times, an adjustment procedure isn’t that big of a deal and what needs to be done isn’t too complicated. But when the adjustments are completed, your dentures will once again fit into your mouth comfortably and function correctly.
