Relines & Repairs
This consists of adding new base material to the tissue side of a denture so it fits properly. Your Denturist will need to take an impression inside your existing denture. Relining affects only the fit of your denture and will not change the appearance of the denture.
Relines are required when tissue changes occur due to shrinkage. This can be due to:
- weight loss
- tooth loss or wear
- bone loss
- disease or illness
In most cases, a Denturist at the Armitage Denture
Clinic can restore an existing broken or cracked denture to its original
state. Repairs may be required when breakage or chipping occurs,
when one or more teeth need to be added to an existing denture (due to
tooth extraction), or because of wear and tear.
Most repairs can easily be done in one day. If your denture requires a repair, it may be indicative of underlying problems, including age of the denture, worn teeth, or poor fit. A Denturist at the Armitage Denture Clinic is a professional who can best explain how to prevent denture breakage from occurring.
