Denture Relines Q&A

What is a denture reline?

Denture relining is an affordable procedure where the provider reshapes the side of your denture that rests on your gums. This process makes your dentures easier to wear and eliminates discomfort you experience.

In general, Gary and Capri Fox recommend a denture reline at least every two years. However, if your tissue and bones change more rapidly after the loss of teeth, you may need more frequent reline services to ensure your dentures always fit comfortably and snug against your gums.

Why do I need a denture reline?

A denture reline may be necessary following a tooth extraction. As your gums heal from the procedure, your body can reabsorb the tissue surrounding the bone at the extraction site. This reabsorption typically happens within several months after the loss of your tooth and will continue happening for a lifetime.

The reabsorption of tissue causes your gum tissue to change shape, resulting in an ill-fitting denture.

What types of reline services are available?

Fox's Spokane Denture Clinic, Inc. offers three types of reline services, including:

Soft reline

A soft reline is an ideal solution if you’re still experiencing reabsorption at a fast rate following an extraction. You may also prefer a soft reline if your gum tissue is extra sensitive to the weight of the denture.

The provider can perform a soft reline in-office by adding a liquid polymer on to the denture in layers. This process increases the cushioning and depth of your denture for a more comfortable fit.

Temporary reline

If your gums are swollen and irritated, the office may recommend a temporary reline, which uses a medicated material that helps your gums heal and compensates for the loss of bone. Your denture will fit snuggly against your gums but remains soft and flexible.

It may take a few weeks for your gums to feel better and return to normal before the provider can fit a new denture.

Permanent reline

A permanent, or hard, reline is similar to the soft reline. The provider adds layers to the base of your denture but uses a harder material. This procedure offers permanent results that will last for several years.

Permanent relines require a morning appointment and afternoon appointment after the lab completes the reline.
