Over time your mouth and dentures undergo inevitable changes. Dentures should be replaced every five to seven years to restore optimum fit, function and appearance. If your dentures require a repair or relining, we can best advise you on the most suitable treatment plan. We can often offer same day service for relines and repairs to minimize the amount of time you are without your dentures. Relines are required when tissue changes occur due to resorption (shrinkage) which can be due to a number of reasons such as loss of weight, loss of teeth, loss of bone/tissue or disease or illness. Material is added to the tissue side of a denture to ensure a snug fit. Keep in mind, relining only affects the fit of your denture and will not change the appearance or address any wear of the denture teeth.
Repairs may be required when breakage occurs, when one or more teeth need to be added to an existing denture, or because of wear and tear. Often denture teeth and clasps can be added to existing partial dentures when natural teeth are lost. Never try to repair or alter your dentures because it may cause irritation due to the poor fit and the repair will not last long. A proper repair requires the addition of new denture material to the repair site and may also require another impression. Most repairs can be done in one day. If your denture requires a repair it may be an indication that the denture is worn or ill-fitting.
