A reline is a procedure used to re-fit the surface of a denture to the tissues of the mouth. This is done by placing a new acrylic base into the denture, duplicating the new form of the oral structures in the mouth. A reline will bring back comfort, stability and discourage food from going under the denture.
Relines are required for many reasons with the most common reason being gum reabsorption (shrinking of the oral tissues). Gum reabsorption is caused by the normal process of aging or after natural teeth have been extracted.
A general rule of thumb is that dentures should be relined once every 2 to 3 years. Relines are a normal part of denture maintenance and are important to the health of the oral tissues and bone support of a denture wearer.
Denture repairs may become necessary due to dropping or normal wear and tear. Repairs are made by the denturist in the office. Most repairs can be done the same day.
Dentures can provide some very important benefits for people who are missing some or all of their teeth. They can:
• Improve the appearance
• Add support for facial structures
• Replace missing teeth
• Last from five to ten years
• Make it easier to speak
• Help with chewing and eating food
Be sure to check out our Before & After page to get a visual impression of how much dentures can affect one’s appearance.
With our own lab located in all four clinics, we can provide you with immediate service so that you never have to go without a natural smile in public. We can take a cast of your mouth prior to tooth extraction, so that you have a new set of teeth waiting for you without delay.
