Shane Chambers Dental Prosthetics is pleased to offer these services to our current and past patients. As an integral part of a comprehensive treatment plan we are honoured to support our patients with ongoing maintenance of their denture health. Our strategy of implementing comprehensive treatment planning at the start of all new denture treatment ensure that we are able to reduce and potentially eliminate the need for these services. Thus enabling a positive denture experience for our patients.
The requirement for relining occurs when bone and tissues change due to shrinkage. Possible causes may be:
The bite position, existing teeth and acrylic base must be in good condition and not worn or stained to provide a reline procedure. A temporary liner (Tissue Conditioner) may be required first and then the permanent reline a month or two later. An impression of your oral tissue is taken inside your denture 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.
