Denture Relines

Maintaining a Secure Fit

New dentures are custom designed to fit your gums securely, providing you with comfort and functionality. Over time, however, your gum tissues can change, leading to a loose denture fit and increased movement.

To ensure your dentures remain secure and functional, professional relines are recommended every one to two years.

Hard Denture Reline

All full dentures benefit from a hard reline approximately every two years. During this process, our team removes a layer of plastic from the interior surface of your denture. Then, we fill the denture with a putty-like material that conforms to the contours of your mouth, creating an accurate impression.

The denture is then sent to our lab, where it’s adjusted to fit the new shape of your gum tissue. This precise process maximizes contact between the denture and your mouth, ensuring a secure fit.

Soft Denture Reline

Some patients have trouble wearing standard dentures due to tender gums or sore spots. In such cases, Pannu Dental Group may recommend relining the denture with a material that remains pliable for one to two years before requiring replacement.

This material is less likely to cause sore spots than the traditional hard reline acrylic. Patients facing these challenges may also explore the more permanent solution of implant-retained dentures.

Temporary Relines

If your dentures haven’t been properly maintained for an extended period, your gums may be red, swollen, or misshapen. These conditions can make it challenging to take impressions for a new hard or soft reline, potentially continuing the problem.

In such situations, our team may recommend a temporary or palliative (medicated) reline material. This reline material provides a much tighter fit for your dentures and is typically soft and pliable.

After a few weeks of use, your gums should return to a more normal state. At that point, you’ll be ready for a new denture or hard reline, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit.

Maintaining a secure denture fit is crucial for your oral health and overall well-being.
