Common Causes of Broken Dentures
There are several things that can lead to broken dentures, such as:
Natural Wear and Tear
Although constructed from strong materials, all dental restorations have a breaking point, and dentures are not an exception.
Despite their durability, years of chewing, biting, grinding, and other teeth functions can cause them to wear out.
Accidents can happen anytime, anywhere. Even the most cautious person may have an accident. Damage from dentures accidentally falling while cleaning is one example.
Dentures have their limitations. To maximise their functions, you have to follow precautionary measures. For example, using your dentures outside their normal functions or abusing their limits can cause them to break.
Ill-fitting dentures can be caused by progressive bone loss or poor dental work. If you feel discomfort while wearing your dentures, visit your Warrnambool dentist immediately.
What Your Warrnambool Dentist Can Do?
Although dentures can be used to replace lost teeth, dental implants are a better option due to their durability and natural appearance.
Warrnambool Dental offers high-quality and durable dental implants as replacements for missing teeth.
Dental implants, when properly cared for, can endure for years, if not a lifetime! This means that long-term costs may be lower because dentures require frequent replacements.
Broken Dentures: What to do?
Emergencies are unpredictable. However, alertness and caution can help lessen their effects.
When cleaning your dentures, check for cracks and breakage. If there are cracks on your dentures, do not attempt to fix them by yourself.
Call your Warrnambool dentist immediately to have your dentures checked as soon as possible.
Why Choose Dental Implants Over Dentures?
Dental implants cost more upfront than dentures, and therefore many people choose dentures without further investigating dental implants as an option.
When you consider the additional costs of dentures, including cleaning solutions, adhesives, repairs, and denture replacement, implants are a better financial solution and well worth the extra upfront cost.
With so many things at stake, like your overall health and self-esteem, we suggest you consult your Warrnambool dentist before reaching a decision.
At the end of the day, your dentist is your best resource to help you decide what option works best for you and your mouth.
Remember that you may decide to start with dentures and eventually progress to dental implants, but dental implants are a more permanent option.
We are here to help you answer these & more questions thoroughly.
