Denture Relines

 

Relining or refitting of both a full and partial denture is carried out when a denture has become loose or unstable but is still in a good condition and it’s not necessary to make a new denture.

What are the causes of a loose or unstable denture? 

When a denture is first made it is customised to mould to the shape of your mouth, but due to the natural ageing process the mouth changes shape. Bone loss occurs immediately after tooth loss because the ridge structure no longer supports the root of a tooth. The majority of the bone structure will be reduced in the first few months then gradually decreases over your lifetime.  Some other causes that can change the fit of a denture can be due to weight loss and disease.

What are the signs of a loose or unstable denture?

Signs that might imply that a reline is needed can be, looseness, soreness, chewing inefficiency, aesthetic changes and collection of food.

What is the process of relining a denture?

Relining a denture is done by resurfacing the fitting surface with new acrylic. An impression would need to be taken inside the fitting surface of the denture, and then the voids where the impression material has filled will be replaced with new material in the laboratory.

When should you get your denture relined? 

Most dentures need to be relined every 2 – 3 years, and where teeth have recently been extracted a reline might be needed after 6 months. If left too long, loose dentures can induce more stress on the supporting tissues, which will increase the risk of further resorption. Loose dentures can not only cause you stress if you’re worried about them falling out, but they can affect your eating, speaking and confidence. It is recommended to seek professional advice as soon as you start noticing these changes.

At TDC, most relines can be turned around within the same day and some health funds can cover up to 80% of the cost. For a denture examination with our Dental Prosthetist, please call us on 9317 7777.

Most comfortable mouthguard!

Thanks to the team at TDC for their friendly expert advice on mouthguards, with a special shout out to Steven for such a quick turnaround time when I had misplaced my mouthguard and urgently needed a replacement. I have taken some big hits in my recent mma fights and thanks to their ultimate mouthguard my teeth stood the test of time. The ultimate mouthguard is the most comfortable m/guard I have had, I can breathe easily and also talk when instructing my classes without removing it. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my m/guard protection.

Fantastic!

Steve and his team at Total Denture Care have been fantastic! I recently had dentistry due to chipping my front tooth in kickboxing as I never wore a mouthguard. After being issued with my new investment from the dentist, I made sure this wouldn't happen again and had Steve customise a mouthguard from his 'Extreme Mouthguard' range; I don't even feel it when sparring!! Cheers TDC :)))
