Rebase, Reline, Repair
You may not need to replace your broken, worn or ill-fitting dentures. Your Denturist will automatically determine if you are eligible for rebase, reline or repair. If repairs are an option, they can often be done that day.
Rebasing is done when denture teeth have not worn out as much as denture base material. The process will include retrofitting dentures by replacing all acrylic denture base. In this way, you are afforded a stable denture without replacing denture teeth.
This is a process that adds new base material to the denture's tissue side, resulting in proper fit. Your Denturist will take an impression within your denture. Relining affects only the fit and not the appearance of your denture. Procedures such as these are only re3quired when tissue changes occur due to shrinkage. These can occur due to:
- Weight loss
- Tooth loss
- Bone loss
- Disease or illness
In most cases, your broken or cracked denture can be restored to its original state. Repairs may be necessary after breakage or chipping, when teeth must be added to an existing denture or due to normal wear.
