Signs Your Dentures Require Repairs

If there is something uncomfortable with your dentures, contact us to determine if a repair or reline is needed. Neglecting the issue could lead to more expensive repairs later or the investment of a complete replacement. Some common signs that indicate the need for denture repairs are:

  • Broken teeth: Biting into a hard seed, shell, or nut, as well as dropping your dentures or stepping on them, can cause a break. We suggest not attempting to fix them by yourself because this could further damage the dentures.

  • Cracks: Strong Impacts can cause your dentures to get chips and cracks. This may cause uneven surfaces on your denture and hurt the soft tissues in your mouth.

  • Difficulty in chewing: The key function of dentures is to replicate teeth and facilitate activities like chewing. If you're experiencing trouble chewing with your dentures, they might need to be relined or repaired. 

  • Discomfort: While dentures will initially require you to adjust to them, sudden discomfort after prolonged use is usually a sign of a denture issue. If you're experiencing discomforts such as jaw pain or uneven pressure, we recommend visiting us as soon as possible.

  • Pressure sores: Pressure sores are a result of poorly fitting dentures. They generally show up in areas on your gums that experience increased stress from loosened dentures. 

Other common signs of damaged dentures can be changes in facial shape, changes in fitting, and oral pain. If you require denture repairs in Nanaimo, please schedule an appointment with us at Harbour City Denture Clinic. We will accommodate you as soon as possible! 


The key to taking care of your dentures is making informed decisions. The following are some commonly asked questions about denture repairs:

Are All Denture Issues Repairable?

At Harbour City Denture Clinic, we will do our best to maximize the longevity and lifespan of your denture appliances. Regular denture maintenance and quick reactivity to denture problems will increase the chances of a simple denture repair or reline. However, it should be expected that when your dentures have aged considerably, a denture replacement might be the only option.


What Are the Causes of Broken Dentures?

Paying attention to the common causes of broken dentures can help you take better care of your dentures. Dentures can usually become damaged as a result of:

  • Poor maintenance
  • Incorrect or rough cleaning
  • Eating hard foods
  • Failure to reline dentures every 2 to 3 years
  • Dropping the dentures
  • Aged dentures


Can I Fix My Own Dentures?

No, you cannot. While a DIY approach might seem like a quick solution, it will most likely do more harm than good. Extensive damage due to DIY solutions can lead to more costly repairs or even the need for a replacement. 


Will My Dentures Last Forever?

While proper care can prolong the life of your dentures, they will eventually require replacement. The type of dentures you have will also attribute to how long your dentures last.
