Next Day Relines
In order to restore the retentive qualities of your denture and to prevent tissue irritation, you should have your denture professionally relined at least once every two years.
After a new denture has been inserted, the inside of the denture base should conform to the shape of your mouth, resulting in a comfortable and close fit. However, over time the tissue underneath the denture will begin to change and you may find that the longer you wear your denture, the looser it will become. This combined with constant ‘rocking’ due to chewing or flexing causes the acrylic to weaken. Periodic relines will help to lessen rocking and act as preventative maintenance to avoid potential breakage and reduce excess wear of the gum tissue.
At our office relines are a next day procedure. Why next day? To ensure optimal fit your denture is processed the same way your denture was originally made and remove all chemical residues. This is a multi-hour procedure.
