The new partial denture provided to you by Dr. Jurgina Elezi and her team is intended to replicate the basic appearance and function of your missing teeth. While it has been constructed from durable dental materials, it is still not invulnerable to harm.

If you have a bad habit of nervously chewing on pencils and pens, or you sometimes crunch on ice it could accidentally impart significant force to your partial denture. These are just a few of the things that could potentially chip, fracture or otherwise damage your partial denture.

Even if your teeth, gums, and surrounding soft tissues are not injured by the incident, you should still seek the professional attention of a dentist like Dr. Jurgina Elezi. Sometimes a small alteration to a partial denture can lead to more significant complications.

After a thorough examination of your mouth and the dental appliance, she can help you understand your options.

This might include treating any immediate oral trauma, as well as starting the process of fitting you for a new partial denture.

In the future, you might want to address the cause of the damage to your partial denture and make any necessary adjustments.
