Relines and Soft Liners

A reline is a procedure used to re-fit the surface of a denture to a person’s gum. This is done by placing a new acrylic base into the denture, duplicating the new form of the oral structures in the mouth. A reline can bring back suction, comfort, stability and discourage food from going under the denture. Relines are required for when bone and tissues change due to shrinkage. Possible causes for this shrinkage may be post-immediate dentures, tooth loss, weight loss, bone loss in the upper or lower jaw, sickness or disease, and general physiological aging. As a general rule dentures should be relined once every two to three years. Relines are a normal part of denture maintenance and important to the health of the oral tissues and bone support of a denture wearer. We will examine and we can help you understand the circumstances involved in ill-fitting, loose or broken dentures. Not all of these situations will require a new denture. A reline may resolve your problem. The bite position, existing teeth and acrylic base(s) must be in good condition and not worn or stained to provide a reline procedure. An impression of your oral tissue is taken inside your denture(s) to provide a working model. New acrylic base material is added to your denture to produce a correct fit. The appearance of your dentures will not change.

 

Soft Liners

If you have been experiencing pain through your gums for some time and your denture, even though it has been carefully adjusted, makes your gums hurt and we can’t see anything wrong except that with time your gums have grown thinner and their shape is more pointed. Along with the pain you have also noticed that your lower denture is becoming increasingly loose and uncomfortable. This condition is known as “gum resorption”. Fortunately, a soft liner can assist in solving this problem. Soft liners are a medical grade soft polymer material applied to the tissue-fitting surface of your hard denture base. Soft liners behave like a shock-absorbing cushion when you are chewing. Soft liners can be applied to new dentures, old dentures and reline situations. The soft liner is used in lower dentures and is bonded into your prosthesis. Being more porous, the soft liner adheres better to what remains of your gum, it is less irritating to your tissues and gives your denture more stability. A soft liner can reduce the shrinkage of your gum, which is constantly changing, and make the denture more comfortable to wear. 

Benefits of Soft Liners:

After we have meticulously adjusted your dentures fit and you are still unable to find comfort with your denture, you may want to consider a soft liner. Soft liners are appropriate for:

  • flat or nearly flat gum tissues
  • gums with thin tissues over bony areas
  • chronically sore gum tissues

 

Requirement of Care for Soft Liners

Soft liners require home care and proper cleaning to maintain their vitality. As with all removable dentures, soft liners require regular check up to ensure fit and oral health. To ensure that your new soft liner denture provides continued comfort, you should have it checked every year and replaced when necessary. This will ensure the health of your gums, as well as ensure maximum fit and comfort. If a soft liner is still not reducing the discomfort of your denture, dental implants is the next alternative. Dentures supported by implants are the most effective treatment of mobile dentures causing bone resporption and sores.

Immediate Denture

When is an immediate denture used? To avoid the situation of being without teeth, we use the immediate denture technique. This involves taking impressions of your mouth while your natural teeth are still present. We are then able to fabricate a denture in the likeness of your natural teeth, or make any necessary modifications you may wish. When your natural teeth are extracted, your immediate denture is then inserted. In this technique, you have avoided having to go without any teeth while you go through the healing process.

Advanced Technique Denture Centre individually crafts each immediate denture, using only the best materials and techniques to ensure an accurate fit, optimal function, and natural aesthetics.

Things you should know about immediate dentures. Since we are unable to try-in the denture prior to extracting your teeth, certain esthetic compromises may be necessary. This doesn’t present any significant problems, and the results are normally quite good. It is important to follow the postoperative instructions that we give to you and the instructions of your Oral Surgeon very carefully. As healing occurs, the bone and gum tissue recede so denture adjustments may be required. Follow-up appointments at our office are necessary. To maintain the best fit and comfort, a temporary liner or tissue conditioner will be placed in the denture. During the next few months, bone and gum tissue will probably continue to shrink to some degree; however, the rate of change decreases with time. This is a natural occurrence, which is to be expected. After the healing process is complete, your denture(s) will be relined to ensure the most comfortable fit possible.

Repairs

In most cases, we 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. We recommend that you call to make an appointment for all repairs. This will ensure we can complete your repair in the shortest time possible.
