Broken, worn or ill-fitting Dentures need not always be replaced. We can very quickly assess if you are a candidate for a rebase, reline or repair.
Always done in a timely fashion, our in house lab will provide you with any type of refitting/repair service imaginable. Relining and rebasing only affects only the fit of your Denture and will not change the appearance. Relines and rebases are required when tissue changes occur due to resorption (shrinkage). This can be due to:
- Loss of weight
- Loss of teeth
- Loss of bone
- Disease or illness
Rebasing is usually done when the Denture teeth have not worn 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 or having to make an all new denture.
This consists of adding new base material to only the tissue side of a Denture so it fits properly.
In most cases, our specialists can restore an existing broken or cracked Denture to its original state. Repairs may be required when breakage or chipping occurs, when one or more teeth need to be added to an existing Denture (due to tooth extraction), or because of wear and tear.
