Dentures are artificial teeth and gums structures that are typically made out of acrylic resin and are designed to be easily removable. Dentures are a very important part of many people's lives, helping them to eat properly and giving them the ability to smile with confidence as they continue to age.
Unfortunately, they are not indestructible and so you may end up facing a situation where your dentures cracked or broken, leaving you wondering what your next step should be. Keep reading to understand the procedure for dealing with broken or cracked dentures so that we can get you back to a comfortable and terrific looking state as quickly as possible.
Most denture cracks can be repaired, however, the important thing to do is call us; every day that your denture is broken is another day that you experience unnecessary difficulty in your life. Not only do broken dentures lead to complications or discomfort while chewing, but they can be an unappealing sight. Cracked dentures might even cause uneven pressure on your gums and constant slipping that tends to lead to soreness.
