Denture Relines

Our mouths and gums are in a constant state of change. Gums shrink and resorb for many reasons such as aging, illness, bone or teeth loss. So it’s natural that over time, your denture may not fit quite as comfortably as it used to. If it starts to feel loose or you have difficulty when eating and food is trapping under your denture then a reline is the perfect solution. Relines are a normal part of denture maintenance and should be done regularly.

We’ll add new base material to the fit of your denture at the point where it meets your gums. Impressions help us contour it to match your existing denture, so it feels comfortable. Importantly, it will look just the same as it always has. We recommend that you have your denture checked every two years in case a reline is necessary. Changes occur so slowly it’s often hard to notice just how much the fit and feel of your denture has deteriorated over time.

Wearing an ill fitting denture can lead to tissue damage and long term issues with denture wearing.
