Repairs to current dentures are usually undertaken due to either "Fractures" or "missing teeth". The most common type of fracture occuring with acrylic dentures is the; "midline fracture" and often occurs when a denture opposes natural dentition or a lower removable partial denture.
Fractures can also occur because of:
- • A previous repair; 40-60% of transverse strength can be lost if previously repaired.
- • Accidental damage; This is the most common cause of denture breakages.
- • Denture Fit; A poorly fitting denture can flex in the mouth.
- • Anatomy; A denture can fracture in excessively thin areas due to anatomical landmarks.
