Repairs

Dentures can break for a variety of reasons, and it is important to seek professional assistance for repair rather than attempting to fix them at home with potentially harmful materials.

At our clinic, we can repair cracked or broken dentures using new acrylic to bond the pieces back together. We can also reattach teeth that have broken off a denture, although this may sometimes require welding for metal partial dentures.

It is crucial to note that the reason for a denture's breakage can affect the longevity of the repair. For instance, if a well-fitted denture has been dropped and has a clean break, a repair is often successful. However, if the breakage was due to rocking in the mouth of an ill-fitting denture, a reline may be more appropriate. In such cases, a consultation with one of our clinicians can help determine the best solution for you.

If you notice a crack in your denture, it is advisable to have it examined before it breaks. This may indicate that the denture is not fitting properly, which we can help identify when you visit us.

For broken clasps, acrylic dentures can be easily replaced, while metal framework dentures require a more complicated repair process. Our clinicians can discuss the available options based on your specific case.
