The requirement for relining occurs when bone and tissues change due to shrinkage. Possible causes may be:
• Post immediate dentures
• Tooth loss
• Weight loss
• Bone loss in the upper or lower jaw
• Sickness or disease
• General physiological aging
The bite position, existing teeth and acrylic base(s) must be in good condition and not worn or stained to provide a reline procedure. An impression of your oral tissue is taken inside your denture(s) to provide a working model. New acrylic base material is added to your denture to produce a correct fit. The appearance of your dentures will not change.
