Relines, Rebases and Repairs

Relines

The requirement for relining occurs when bone and tissues change due to shrinkage.


Possible causes may be:

  • Post immediate dentures
  • Tooth loss
  • Bone loss in the upper or lower jaw
  • Sickness or disease
  • General physiological aging


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

This procedure is similar to relining. The difference being is that 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


Repairs

Repairs restore a fractured or damaged denture close to its original condition. Most denturists can provide denture repair procedures on a same day basis.
