Q?

What is a reline and why I may need it?

A.

A reline is a procedure used to re-fit the surface of a denture to a person's gum. This is done by placing a new acrylic base into the denture, duplicating the new form of the oral structures in the mouth. A reline can bring back suction, comfort, stability and discourage food from going under the denture. Since your mouth and the dental ridges change or shrink over time, a denture reline is necessary to keep your denture fitting well and to prevent your dental ridges from "shrinking" more rapidly. Reasons you may require a reline.

  • Better fit, a relined denture "stays in better"
  • A better fitting denture helps the dental ridges stay healthy
  • Helps a denture last longer
  • Helps with proper nutrition and health
  • Maintain the original vertical dimension of the face as the gums continue shrinking.
