The natural shape of the human mouth changes constantly. In particular, the gums shrink over time and this is the reason why dentures that were a perfect fit when first supplied will become loose, sometimes causing embarrassing loss of a denture in a public place.
In extreme cases, a complete new denture may be required. However, relining is the process of refitting the existing denture to the jaw shape. Some professionals refer to relining as “rebasing” essentially the same process.
Most of the time a reline can reshape existing denture, making the fit virtually as new. The benefits include lower cost than a complete replacement, increased comfort, denture retention, reduction of incorrect pressure on the gums that causes soreness and reduced entrapment of food debris.
Regardless of whether the existing dentures are metal or acrylic, the process is simple and painless. The reline process usually takes only a day or two. When the dentures are refitted into the mouth usually only simple adjustments are needed.
As simple as this process is, the result depends entirely upon the skill and professionalism of the dental technician.
Denture breakage frequently occurs when the denture is dropped, but may also occur when they no longer fit the mouth correctly due to bone shrinkage and jaw shape changing over time.
In most cases broken dentures can be repaired. It is advisable to retain all broken pieces and take them to the technician. It may be necessary to have new impressions taken so the denture can be refitted to restore comfort & prevent breakage from re-occurring.
It is not uncommon for a natural tooth to require extraction after a denture has been fitted. In most cases, it is possible to add teeth to existing dentures using tooth coloured acrylic resins.
The same applies to a situation where a broken tooth on the denture can be replaced with a new tooth. However, adding teeth to Chrome metal base dentures may require the existing denture base to be modified by welding an extension to the denture. This process may take up to seven days to complete.
