dentures may need to be relined to ensure a proper fit New dentures will typically fit your mouth very securely as it has been designed specifically for your gums. As time goes on, your gum tissues will change and the fit of the denture will become more loose and thus more prone to movement inside your mouth. Having the denture professionally relined every one to two years will keep the denture secure and functional.

Hard Reline

All full dentures should have a hard reline every two years. Downtown Dental removes a layer of plastic from the dentures interior surface, and then fills the denture with a putty-like material which conforms to the contours of your mouth creating an accurate impression. The denture is sent to the lab where it is adjusted to the new shape of your gum tissue. This results in maximum contact between the denture and your mouth.

Soft Reline

Some patients are unable to wear ordinary dentures because of tender gums or sore spots. Downtown Dental may recommend relining the denture with a material that stays pliable for one to two years before needing replacement. This material is much less likely to give the patient sore spots than the standard hard reline acrylic. Patients experiencing these problems may also consider a more permanent solution of implant retained dentures.

Temporary Relines

If dentures have not been serviced in quite some time, a patient’s gums may be red, swollen, or misshapen. This creates problems in taking impressions for a new hard or soft reline and may lead to a denture that would perpetuate the problem.

A temporary, or palliative (medicated) reline material may be recommended to allow the inflammation to subside. This reline makes the denture fit much more tightly, and is usually soft and pliable. After a few weeks, the gums return to a more normal state. The patient is then ready for his new denture or hard reline.

Patient Review By G S

Dr. Saddia Patton is the best dentist I ever had. She is friendly and caring and takes her time to explain and listen. She has a gentle touch when she works on a tooth and it never hurts even though I opt out of local anesthesia. She also does a great job sculpting and polishing fillings until they feel like they are just part of the tooth. I almost look forward to going to the dentist now. I never thought I’d say that.

Patient Review By Bradley P

I originally came in to fix my broken front tooth after an accident. Dr. Patton didn’t try to sell expensive treatment but bonded my tooth the same day and with a minimally invasive procedure. I was surprised it could be fixed that easily. Ever since then I’ve been a loyal patient and not planning on going elsewhere for my dental treatment. Highly recommend!
