Denture Repair Q & A

What do I do if my denture breaks?

It can be tempting to try to fix a broken denture at home, but don't do it! It's essential to have a professional take care of it, and Denture Design Studio has over 30 years of experience in designing, making, and repairing oral appliances. All dentures and denture repairs are done on-site, and same-day services are available.

Common denture breaks include:

  • Pieces of pink acrylic falling off
  • A tooth cracking or falling out
  • The denture breaking in half

While you wait for your appointment, clean your denture pieces and place them in a bag until Denture Design Studio can handle the repairs.

What types of denture repairs are possible?

Properly caring for and repairing your dentures ensures a comfortable fit, maintains the health of your mouth, and extends the life of your dentures.

Common denture repairs and maintenance include:

  • Denture rebasing: Resetting the teeth from your dentures into a new base
  • Denture adjustment: Adjusting the fit of your dentures to prevent rubbing or discomfort
  • Denture relining: Resurfacing the area of your denture that comes in contact with the soft tissues of your mouth

All denture repairs including teeth replacement are done in-house at Denture Design Studio.

How often are dentures replaced?

Dentures usually last 5-10 years, but their lifespan depends on how well you care for them.  

Your mouth naturally changes as you age. Not only do your gums recede and shrink, but your jaw alignment can shift. As your mouth changes, so will the fit of your dentures, so you’ll need new ones to avoid discomfort and problems.

How can I avoid broken dentures?

Sometimes you can’t avoid a broken denture, but you can reduce your risk of denture emergencies by caring for them properly. This includes:

  • Storing your dentures in water or denture cleanser
  • Brushing them regularly and rinsing them thoroughly
  • Scheduling routine denture maintenance at Denture Design Studio

To avoid breaking your dentures while brushing, brush them over a sink filled with water or over a folded towel to create a softer surface.
