Denture Relines in Kewaskum, WI

As time goes on, your gum tissues will change and the fit of the denture will become more loose and as a result, more prone to movement inside your mouth. Every one or two years, professional denture relines will keep the denture secure and functional.

Hard Reline

Every two years, all full dentures should have a hard reline. Kewaskum Family Dentistry removes a layer of plastic from the dentures interior surface, and then fills the denture with a putty-like material. The material conforms to the contours of your mouth creating a precise impression. The denture is then sent to the lab where it is adjusted to the new shape of your gum tissue. The result is maximum contact between the denture and your mouth.

Soft Reline

Due to tender gums or sore spots, some patients are unable to wear ordinary dentures. If this is the case, Kewaskum Family Dentistry may recommend relining the denture with a material that stays pliable for one to two years before it needs to be replaced. This material minimizes sore spots unlike standard hard reline acrylic. Patients who experience these problems may want to consider a more permanent solution of implant retained dentures.

Temporary Relines

A patient’s gums may be red, swollen, or misshapen if dentures have not been serviced in quite some time. This can create problems when taking impressions for a new hard or soft reline. In turn, this may cause the denture to not fit properly.

We may recommend a temporary, or palliative (medicated) reline material to allow the inflammation to subside. This reline will make the denture fit much more tightly, and is usually soft and pliable. After a few weeks, the gums return to a more normal state, and the patient is then ready for their new denture or hard reline.

Very detailed and extremely patient oriented and caring. Makes sure that the patient understands what they are saying, explains to the patient what is going on/what will happen, as well as answers all the patients questions.
