Relines And Rebase

Reline

This is done by adding new base material on the tissue surface of the denture to ensure an accurate fit. In time the tissues may change due to:

Rebase

Rebasing is usually done when the denture teeth have not worn out in comparison to the denture base material. It is a process of retrofitting dentures by replacing all of the acrylic denture base with new acrylic, which provides a stable denture without replacing the denture teeth.

The appearance of your denture will not change but the reline will help you maintain a healthy bite, proper chewing ability and a healthy smile. It may even help eliminate speech irregularities and improve your communication.

There are essentially 3 basic types of denture relines, described as follows:

Rite Bite Denture & Implant Clinic can provide permanent hard relines using either office-cured plastic or laboratory-cured plastic. The laboratory-cured reline tends to last longer due to special processing. For your convenience, we can have both types ready the same day. Our skilled denturist will recommend the type best suited to meet your unique needs.

We are pleased to provide permanent laboratory-processed soft relines. These relines will stay soft and last the life of your denture. Keep in mind that they do require special care and cleaning as staining can occur if not cleaned regularly.

Temporary soft relines are typically done following extractions to compensate for the shrinkage of bone. They may also be necessary following excessive weight loss. Our temporary soft liners are designed to last up to 3 months or until shrinkage has stopped and are then replaced with permanent liners.
