Denture Relining & Rebasing

The challenge of ill-fitting dentures often arises due to changes in bone density or bone resorption. These shifts can compromise the snug fit of dentures over time, impacting both their stability and retention. In response to this issue, denture relining and rebasing have emerged as viable solutions to enhance the comfort and functionality of dentures.

Relining and rebasing involve a meticulous process. An impression is taken with the denture in place, and this impression is then sent to a dental laboratory. In the laboratory, the fitting surface of the denture undergoes a careful trimming process, followed by the addition of an extra layer of acrylic material. While this procedure can effectively improve the stability and retention of dentures, it's essential to note that it also contributes to an increase in the thickness of the acrylic, potentially resulting in a bulkier feel.
