ABOUT CRACKED PLATES

First and foremost, don’t panic. Although a broken denture can be distressing, keep in mind that this is not an uncommon occurrence. One of the most serious complications with full dentures is prosthesis fracture. This is what it’s called with dentures broke in half. It is more common with the top denture but does occur with the bottom denture as well. Not only does a broken denture make everyday tasks such as chewing, eating, swallowing and talking unnecessarily difficult, it can also be embarrassing. After all, your dentures will always break into pieces at the worst possible time. It could be a big presentation at work, a first date or a social occasion with a big photo-opportunity – whatever the circumstances; you can guarantee that you are going to need your denture repaired quickly.
