Denture Repairs Christchurch

Even dentures, which are strong enough to permanently replace your natural teeth, can get broken. There’s no reason for you to panic about it, though. Merivale Denture Clinic provides quality denture repair service in Christchurch, New Zealand and the surrounding area. We can usually fix up your dentures in 2 to 3 hours.

What are the most common reasons for broken dentures?

Dentures are just like natural teeth. They could get damaged due to an accident. They could deteriorate over time. Ill-fitting dentures or neglect of maintenance can also result in broken dentures. Here are some things we observed from previous clients who came in for denture repairs:

  • A poor fit takes a toll on your denture material. If your lower and upper dentures aren’t properly aligned, it puts greater pressure on one area when you’re chewing or biting. This leads to fractures.

  • ​Dropping the denture could cause fractures. Your dentures might be made of the toughest material but that doesn’t mean that the appliance is indestructible. It still suffers damages from strong impact.

  • Worn out dentures are prone to breakage. Whether it’s because of dentures with an uneven bite or because of years of wear, dentures can be worn thin just like how real teeth and jaw bone can.

What is the step-by-step process of denture repair?

Step 1: Realigning your broken dentures
Denture adhesives will be used to hold the broken dental appliance together while our specialist realigns your dentures.


Step 2: Keeping the denture in place
The broken denture will be kept in place, usually with a tongue blade, in preparation for the next step.


Step 3: Creating an impression cast
We make sure the denture is stable enough for us to apply an impression cast using plaster.


Step 4: Setting up the impression cast
Once the plaster has set, it will be removed carefully and the cast will be trimmed accordingly.


Step 5: Filling up the cracks in the dentures
We reposition the dentures on the cast, then use liquid monomer and powder polymer for repairs.
