Relines and Repairs
With our on-site lab we are able to offer our patients same day service for denture repairs and denture relines.
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Cracked or broken denture
- Stained dentures
Our repairs are done with acrylic resin which is strong and accurate. We do not use glue and recommend patients do not either. Repairing or adjusting you denture yourself can cause irreparable damage and may result in the need for a new denture. Denture relines should typically be done to refit your dentures to your ever-changing gums once every two years. Your gums and jaw bone are forever shrinking as you age but your denture does not. This results in loose fitting dentures that may fit like a comfortable, old pair of shoes but at the same time can cripple your jaw and cause sore gums and leave you completely unaware.
Our clinic offers 30 minute relines while you wait, however, the relining material is not as good as the lab processed relines whichtake 4 hours. This material is more durable, accurate and color stable.
Soft liner relines are permanent rubbery liners that are placed on the fitting side of the lower denture for those patients who needcushioning for their flat and perpetually sore lower gums.
