At Vodusek Denture Clinic, we offer same-day relines! Our reline procedure consists of adding new material to the tissue side of the denture, giving it a snug, comfortable fit. A reline will only affect the fit and feel of the denture and will not affect the appearance. Relines are required when the denture is loose, sometimes due to loss of weight, loss of bone, disease or illness. Relines at Vodusek Denture Clinic can be accomplished in one day!
We recommend that your dentures be relined every 2 years.
Softlining uses a permanent, soft material known as a “softliner” that is added to the tissue side of a lower denture. This softliner acts as a shock-absorbing cushion between hard acrylic and the gum tissue. Softliners can be added to new and existing dentures.
Is A Soft Liner Right For You?
Permanent soft liners provide comfort and relief for individuals with:
severely receded or flat gums that do not tolerate the stress of dentures
gums with prominent or sharp bony areas
Advantages Of Soft Liners
greater comfort (a significant number of denture wearers with chronic discomfort have experienced great relief)
clinical evidence indicates that almost everyone tolerates soft liner materials
with soft liners, many denture wearers report that they can chew food more comfortably
a proven technology, soft liners have been offered to patients for over 20 years, and over that time the materials and technology have steadily improved
Things To Think About With Soft Liners
greater consideration in the use of proper cleaners and good home care must be given
require regular follow-up visits with a Denturist to examine the fit of dentures, the health of a patient’s oral tissues and to ensure professional cleaning
Rebasing is usually done when the denture teeth have not worn out 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.
