Relines & Soft liners

Relines

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
  • aging

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

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
