Get the fit, function and comfort you’ve been missing with a denture reline! In as little as two hours, you can have your existing dentures relined to better conform to your gums.
Over time, the underlying bone material underneath your gums begins to shrink. This process, known as “resorption,” can cause your dentures to uncomfortably shift along the surface of the gums instead of staying in place. You may also hear a clicking sound while you speak or eat.
Soft-liners are ideal for those with flat or nearly flat gum tissues, gums with spots of thin tissue over bony areas or those with chronically sore gums.
What about Over-the-Counter Denture Reline Kits?
In theory, “do-it-yourself” denture reline kits should work, yet in practice, these usually turn out with less-than-stellar results. The main problem with these kits is that you are adding material, without taking any way. As one of your body’s most sensitive areas, adding even a millimetre of thickness inside your mouth can cause a great deal of discomfort. By changing your bite, you will also strain your jaw and possibly develop a disorder of the temporal-mandibular joint (TMJ). That’s why it is often best to leave relines to professional denturists.
