Relines or Rebasing Dentures

 

A considerable amount of effort, energy and time go into fabricating a denture. As many (denture wearers) will testify, once the patient has a set of teeth they are delighted with, no one wants to tinker or change it. A patient’s gum will shrink and change over time due to the natural physiological changes impacting the human body. Often the denture will become loose, bite efficiency will decrease and the patient will slowly adapt to a poorly fitting and functioning teeth. Rather than visit the dental professional to address the issues, many people wear denture adhesives to keep their plate stable.

The problem with this temporary approach is that a loose denture can cause permanent damage to the underlying gums and in the case of partial dentures, the adjacent teeth. In severe cases, surgical removal of damaged tissue and/ or extraction of abutment teeth is required as part of the long term treatment to rehabilitate oral health.

 

If you are concerned that your denture will be unrecognisable after this procedure - worry not! Relining of your original dentures will not change the colour, shape and size of your teeth.

 

If your dentures are loose, don't delay, call us today. All relines are done using premium quality, hi impact and heat cured acrylic for maximum strength.
