Our office is pleased to offer you same day relines!
A reline is the process of adding new base material to the tissue fitted side of a denture so it fits properly. Relining can restore your denture to a "like new fit". Your Denturist will need to take an impression inside your existing denture.
Relining affects only the fit of your denture and will not change the appearance or other aspects.
Relines are required when tissue changes occur due to resorption (shrinkage). Resorption can take months or years to happen and takes place so gradually that you barely notice its even happening.
A permanent soft liner is a layer of soft material that is fitted to the surface of a denture and rests next to the oral tissues. In short, a soft liner acts as a cushion or shock absorber between the hard plastic base of a denture and the gums. Soft liners can be used in the fabrication of new dentures or placed in existing dentures.
IS A SOFT LINER RIGHT FOR YOU?
Permanent soft liners provide comfort and relief for individuals with:
Severely receded or flat gums that do not tolerate the stress of dentures
Gums with prominent or sharp bony area
