Relines

The requirement for relining occurs when bone and tissues change due to shrinkage. Possible causes may be:

  • Post immediate dentures
  • Tooth loss
  • Weight loss
  • Bone loss in the upper or lower jaw
  • Sickness or disease

The bite position, existing teeth and acrylic base(s) must be in good condition and not worn or stained to provide a reline procedure. An impression of your oral tissue is taken inside your denture(s) to provide a working model. New acrylic base material is added to your denture to produce a correct fit. The appearance of your dentures will not change.

REBASE
The procedure is similar to relining. The difference being, a rebase replaces all the pink-acrylic denture base material. The existing teeth remain in the exact same place.

Reasons for rebase procedure:

  • Broken denture
  • Weakened or old pink denture base
  • Immediate denture
