To reline a denture the technician will take the updated impression and assess the area in need. They then add acrylic to the interior of the denture to confirm the pallet and restore a more comfortable and effective fit.
Repairs will be unique to the case, but most commonly our technicians utilize acrylic to add missing teeth, or repair broken claps or areas on the appliance.
A reline may be indicated if:
- the denture become loose
- the fit of the denture feels different or uncomfortable
A repair can be done on:
- dentures where the teeth have fell out or are damaged
- the acrylic base of a denture that is cracked or damaged
- flippers that are cracked, broken or are missing teeth
