Quite a few people wear partial dentures and these prosthetic devices are found in people of all ages. Dentures are cheaper and less invasive than implants. This is one reason why people who use them prefer this alternative. Usually, dentures last for many years. However, in rare situations they may be subjected to immense shock or trauma and break as a result.
Dentists typically do emergency denture repairs in a wide range of situations. Hairline cracks usually take an hour or so to be fixed. If your denture is completely broken in half the repairs will take longer. If your denture has been broken into pieces those sections must fit together if you want your device to be fixed. If they cannot be aligned, a completely new impression will have to be made of your mouth so that your dentist can be sure that the dental appliance will be right for you.
Usually, a set of dentures will not just break without a reason, even if it is dropped by accident. In cases where these devices are broken into several pieces, they may have been subjected to undue stress due to an improper fit. Over time, a person's body may change slightly and relatively minor alterations may cause a dental appliance to become loose. Other teeth around the appliance may also become worn with time and this may affect your fit and result in breakage.
Dentists usually do denture repairs with acrylic or with a special bonding solution. Denture adhesives are also used alongside professional quality replacement teeth where this is required. Having a repair job done by a trained professional is better than attempting it yourself at home. Sometimes there are changes in your dentition which you may not be aware of. A doctor can pick these up more easily than you will. They will also use materials which are of a higher quality and less likely to cause damage to your mouth.
