Over time, regardless if you have a full or partial denture, it becomes loose or ill fitting due to the bone and gums shrinking away from underneath the denture resulting in lack of denture support. It can cause discomfort, embarrassment and in certain cases denture breakage. This shrinking (resorption) begins when your natural teeth are extracted, and whilst it slows down, it never completely stops. This means there is a continual need for maintenance on your denture in the form of a reline.
Unlike some other clinics that just put a new layer of plastic in the denture, when we reline your denture, we replace the entire fitting surface by taking a new impression in your denture, removing all the pink plastic, and replacing it to fit the new shape recorded in the impression. This entire process takes a single day, and is completed on-site, resulting in greater denture comfort and retention. Relines affect the fitting surface of the denture and will not affect the appearance. This can be done on both full and partial dentures.
After your reline has been completed, you will probably need adjustments. This is completely normal and we are more than happy to adjust your dentures for you as many times as you need it. There is no charge for this service, so if you have a problem, let us know - we're always happy to hear from you!
