Relines & Soft liners
Nobody likes wearing an ill fitting, loose fitting or broken denture! Expert Denture Clinic can help with a reline or rebase of your existing denture often on the same day!
The requirement for relining occurs when bone and tissues change due to shrinkage.
Possible causes may be;
- post immediate denture
- tooth loss
- weight loss
- bone loss in the upper or lower jaw
- sickness or disease
An impression of your oral tissue is taken inside your denture to provide a working model. New acrylic base material is then added to your denture to provide a correct fit.
Soft liners are a medical grade soft polymer material applied to the tissue fitting the 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, relines and rebase situations.
Soft liners are appropriate for;
- flat or nearly flat gum tissues
- gums with thin tissues over bony areas
- chronically sore gum tissues
