Dentures can break due to a variety of reasons, including:
- Wear and tear
- Poorly fitting dentures
- Dentures that have loosened over time
- Accidental dropping of the denture
Most dentures can be repaired, but will require you to bring as much of the denture to the dentist. In some instances, the dentist may be able to repair the denture for you there and then. If the break is particularly severe, your denture may require to be sent to a laboratory to be repaired- this can take a few hours. We do not recommend trying to repair the denture with superglue.
