If you're looking for a way to replace missing teeth, you'll find many options but dentures are a cost effective and painless way to deal with the problem. But what happens when the denture breaks? Let’s take a look. Dentures are tough but they are not as durable as natural teeth or dental implants and you need to be careful when biting down hard on something. If you accidentally drop them on the floor, they will get damaged and over time, one or more teeth in a denture can get misaligned due to wear and tear. If the denture breaks, it could lead to a number of oral problems.
A broken denture needs to be fixed by a dentist or a dental lab technician; the dentist examines the denture to assess what needs to be done and it is then sent to the technician to get fixed. As a practice, the dentist will give the patient information on how to look after the denture, but over time, wear and tear will impact the denture and damage will result. It is also possible that changes in the jaw structure of the patient can impact the denture adversely. It could lead to the denture becoming loose and fall out while you speak or eat. The first thing you need to remember is that you need to consult your dentist the moment you begin to experience uneasy or if it shows signs of damage.
The positive thing about all this is that denture repair in Mesa, AZ isn’t expensive and doesn’t take much time; most repairs take about an hour on average. In the odd case of the denture being beyond repair, you will need to replace the denture. This could cost you more and it could also take a couple of weeks to get the replacement. In all, as long as the repairs are done by a dentist or a dental technician, you will have much to worry about; just a bit of inconvenience while it is being done.
