Broken Dentures


Broken Dentures

Dentures are prosthetic teeth that replace missing natural teeth. They fit comfortably over your gums and reduce potential issues caused by missing teeth. However, you must take proper care of them to prevent them from getting damaged or broken. In some cases, dentures can be repaired- but in some cases, they must be replaced.

Dr. Isaac Perle and the team at Cambridge Dental Group will be happy to help you with your broken dentures. Dr. Perle has been practicing dentistry for more than 35 years and always puts his patients first.

When you have dentures, you must handle them carefully. Broken or cracked dentures can affect your day-to-day activities such as smiling, eating, and speaking.

Why do dentures become damaged or broken?

Dentures may break or sustain damage when dropped on a hard surface. This is common for removable dentures since they are taken out of the mouth from time to time, especially before going to bed. Dentures are delicate and may break even if only dropped a few inches. In some cases, dentures may fall out of your mouth.

When you are removing your dentures, it’s a good idea to stand over a sink filled with water or a folded towel. Additionally, when cleaning your dentures, you must avoid damaging the clasps or plastic and bending the dentures.

When you get your dentures, Dr. Perle will explain to you exactly how you need to care for and maintain them. They should easily fit into place, as a partial denture may break if you bite down to force it into the proper position.

Replacing Dentures

Typically, dentures last for at least 5 years before they need to be replaced- but this varies from one patient to another. Dr. Perle will advise you when you need to replace yours.

If the teeth on a denture plate are broken or cracked or if the plate itself is broken or cracked, it should be evaluated for replacement. In addition, if you cannot comfortably wear it, you may need a replacement. When you have dentures, it’s important to schedule regular visits with Dr. Perle and the team so that he can examine the condition of your jaw and your dentures.

When to Call for an Appointment

If your dentures break, it’s important to call the office or click here to request an appointment immediately. We are open Monday through Thursday 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM and Friday 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Most of the time, we can get you into the office on the same day.

Sometimes, repairs or adjustments can be made in the office, but sometimes the repairs are more complex, and we will need to send the dentures to a lab. If the damage is beyond repair, you’ll need to have them replaced.

  • I had BriteSmile done. My husband had gone to Dr. Perle’s office for the same treatment; he’s gone a couple of time, so he actually referred me. I felt very confident they knew what they were doing. They were professional, the doctor was nice, and the woman who did it explained everything. It worked out very well. I would do it again.

  • My name is Aaron Bickel and they reattached a bridge that had fallen out. I found them to be knowledgeable about the procedure and he explained everything before he did it and did a good job and did what he needed to do. They got back to me very quickly which was good, it was at night on a Saturday. Everything went well. I would recommend them.
