Background: There are many causes and reasons associated with fractures of complete dentures. The present study assessed case of complete denture fracture. Materials and Methods: One hundred and fifty complete denture wearers reported to the department of prosthodontics for correction of complete denture fracture were examined carefully. The factors such as retention, stability, and occlusal errors were recorded. Cause of denture fracture was recorded too. Results: Out of 150 patients, males were 80 and females were 70. The site of fracture was incisor area in 25, canine area in 30, midline in 50, molar area in 10, and maxillary tuberosity/retromolar pad area in 35 cases. The etiology of denture fracture was accidental fall in 42, poor fit in 28, poor occlusion in 40, material breakage in 25, and acrylic base defect in 15 cases. The difference was statistically significant (P < 0.05). Conclusion: Most common cause of denture fracture was accidental fall, poor fit, poor occlusion, and material breakage.
