Because our mouths and gums are in a constant state of change, especially when tooth loss has occurred, it is not uncommon for your dentures to become loose or ill-fitting over time.
Relines restore the fitting surface of your old dentures and adapt them more closely to your gums. This can help stabilise the denture and improve suction, as well as fill in areas that trap food particles. In most cases, lower dentures will require a reline every 2 to 3 years due to the loss of bone which naturally occurs over time.
Relines can be performed on the same day by creating a mould using your existing denture, obtaining a precise impression of your gums. When the denture is returned, the result is an accurate fit, much like a brand new denture.
