DENTURE RELINES / REBASES / CAST PALATES / NAME ON DENTURES
Rebasing is usually done when the denture teeth have not worn out in comparison to the denture base material. It is a process of retrofitting dentures by replacing all of the acrylic denture base with new acrylic, which provides a stable denture without replacing the denture teeth.
Relining affects only the fit of your denture and will not change the appearance. Relines are required when tissue changes occur due to resorption (shrinkage). This can be due to:
loss of weight / loss of teeth / loss of bone / ageing / disease or illness
Broken, worn or ill-fitting dentures need not always be replaced. In fact. Your Denturist can assess very quickly if you’re a candidate for a rebase, *reline or repair. Relines can be done the same day, in our own lab located right on the premises.
* Not all dentures can be relined.
Cast palates can be incorporated into full dentures to provide extra rigidity, therefore making your dentures more durable and adding to your denture's longevity. Palates can be made thinner as well when manufactured in cast metal versus the bulkier option (plastic pink).
Have your name placed in your dentures...no one will be stealing your dentures again!
