Why Dentures Chip or Fracture and How To Prevent It

Dentures are an excellent replacement for missing teeth that enable you to eat and speak as though you had a perfect set of teeth. As a result of regular wear and tear, your dentures will eventually need to be replaced, in fact denturists recommend they be replaced every 5 to 7 years. Dentures can become stained, chipped or fractured and be rendered unsightly and perhaps unsafe. Their lifespan might also be shortened by several other factors such as caffeine intake, weight loss or gain and changes to your mouth's shape as you age.

Hard Reline or Soft Reline? Which is Best?

To answer this question, we have to first explain why you need to reline your dentures to begin with. When a tooth is extracted from your mouth, the area of the gums that used to support the tooth, called the edentulous ridge, begins to shrink. After all, with the tooth gone, then there's no reason to have so much tissue in place to support thin air. Our bodies know this, and so get rid of that excess gum. The initial shrinkage (about 90% of it) happens in the first 4 to 6 months after your tooth is extracted, after which it will stabilize somewhat. Obviously, after such a loss of volume, it's no surprise that you'll suddenly find your dentures rather loose. It's time for a reline.
