About Our Denture Relines
Your dentures are designed to perform just like your natural teeth through all moments in your daily life, from speaking to eating. However, over time, you may find that your denture alignment doesn’t feel as natural as it once was. This is a normal part of the denture lifecycle, and has an easy and simple solution.
By performing a denture reline, a procedure that refits your dentures back to your gums, we can help restore the natural look and feel of your dentures. And, with our commitment to providing affordable dental care, you can trust that your local practice is your best choice for denture relines and adjustments.
Contact a local denture specialist near you, to schedule a denture reline appointment.
More about Denture Relines
What is a Denture Reline?
A denture reline is a simple, pain-free procedure that refits your dentures back to your gums. It’s very similar to the process of creating a new denture, so you might be surprised at how familiar it feels!
Why is a denture reline needed?
With regular talking, chewing, and other parts of daily wear and tear, the material that makes up your dentures can get stretched out or loose. Your dentures might also become looser as you age. A denture reline creates a tighter fit by reshaping your dentures to your gums.
What is the denture reline procedure like?
The dentist uses a new impression to fix loose-fitting prosthetics. The new impression helps the in-house laboratory team adjust your dentures to once again better fit your gums.
How Long Does it Take?
In many cases, your local practice will have your denture relines completed in a single visit. Each Affordable Dentures & Implants practice features an on-site laboratory, which allows your dentist to create your relines in-house.
What is the difference between a hard and soft denture reline?
A hard reline uses hard acrylic to mimic the original material of the denture base. A soft reline uses a softer material, which is less durable but is gentler on sensitive gums.
Do denture relines hurt?
Your dentist is only creating an impression of the surface of your gums, and the procedure should not cause pain. If you’re concerned about discomfort, reach out to your local practice to ask questions and discuss their method in depth.
