Dentures are a replacement for your natural teeth, restoring your mouth’s day-to-day functions and restoring your perfect smile. These false teeth are attached to a plastic (called acrylic) and can be removed. They have long been employed by dentists and chosen by patients for their practical and aesthetic benefits.
However, despite their durability, dentures can still break. Broken dentures are considered as a dental emergency at Smiles Nambour. We understand how a broken denture can affect everything you do, and that’s why we want to address it as soon as possible.

Reasons For Their Damage
#1. Wear and tear.
Following years of use, your dentures are weakened by everyday episodes of chewing, grinding, biting, and other similar work of your teeth. All dentures have a breaking point, and there’s nothing you can do but replace them.
Your dentures are not all-purpose tools – they have limitations. That their strength is not the same as your natural teeth only gives you more reason to take care of them.
Some examples of abuse are biting down on hard/sharp materials, tearing tape, and opening packages.
Dentures can fall and break if they are loose. Taking them off at night to let your gums rest also risks your dentures falling and breaking.
#4. Ill-fitting dentures.
Dentures can fit badly because of progressive bone loss or poor dental work. A progressive bone loss means a shrinking jawbone. The second problem can be addressed by choosing the right dentist. Smiles Nambour is your trusted dentist that delivers premium quality dental services.
What To Do
If your dentures break, the best thing to do to stop your discomfort immediately is to see your Smiles Nambour dentist. Repairing broken dentures requires the skill and knowledge of a dentist.
Fixing your broken dentures yourself using denture repair kits from drugstores is highly discouraged. Denture repair kits are often ineffective and can cause further damage to your dentures.
Call and see your dentist at Smiles Nambour immediately to begin repair. For dentures that need replacement, your dentist will have to get a new mould of your mouth to make sure that the dentures will fit you perfectly. Small cracks can be easily fixed at Smiles Nambour. We want you back smiling as soon as possible.
