When Should You Repair Your Dentures?
Damage to your dentures can occur suddenly or gradually. Poor fit is one of the leading reasons people need cracked denture repair. As you speak or chew, your dentures apply pressure on one another repeatedly. Over time poor fitting, misaligned dentures will over stress a specific area, causing a break that will only continue to worsen. Impacts, including dropping your denture, can cause damage to the tooth or gum area of the denture. Furthermore, any metal clasps – common in partial dentures – may come loose due to wear and tear. All of these situations require immediate repair from a professional. Although do-it-yourself repair kits are available, their results are inconsistent and may even cause further issues since they may not address the underlying cause of your cracked dentures.
