Relines, Rebases and Repairs

{podatci[@id='Fax']/data}

Your denturist can help you understand the circumstances involved in ill-fitting, loose or broken dentures. Not all of these situations will require a new denture. A reline or rebase may resolve your problem. Your Denturist, in most circumstances can offer same day service for most repairs.

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
  • 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

Denturists in most cases have no way of trying the denture(s). The 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 denturist can provide denture repair procedures on a same day basis. Your denturist will advise you of the condition of your denture and the necessary steps needed in preventing further breakage.
