Reline and Rebase
Since the inside of your mouth changes over time, dentures can become loose, generate sore
spots, become uncomfortable and ill fitting. A reline, also known as a “denture tightening”, provides a quick and cost-effective solution. Regular relining will also help to keep your dentures and your gums in better condition. If significant changes have occurred, it is also possible to replace the entire “pink” gum portion of the denture while retaining all of the teeth. This is called a rebase. Your denturist at South Point Denture Clinic will gladly access your dentures free of charge, or at an annual check up appointment; and confirm your treatment options
There is a requirement for relining when bones 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 for a reline procedure.
An impression of your oral tissue is taken inside your denture(s) to provide a working model. The new acrylic base material is added to your denture to produce a correct fit. The appearance of your dentures will not change.
This procedure is similar to relining. The difference is that a rebase replaces all the pink-acrylic denture base material. The existing teeth remain in the same place.
Reasons for rebase procedure
- Broken denture
- Weakened or old pink denture base
