Here are some frequently asked questions (FAQs) about denture relines:

What is a denture reline?

A denture reline is a procedure done to reshape the underside of a denture to improve its fit. It involves adding material to the tissue side of the denture to make it more comfortable and snug.

Why might I need a denture reline?

Over time, changes in your jawbone structure or the tissues in your mouth can occur, leading to a loose-fitting denture. A reline is recommended to address these changes and enhance the fit of the denture.

How often should I get a denture reline?

The frequency of denture relines varies from person to person. In general, it is recommended to have a denture reline every two to three years or as advised by your dentist.

Can I get a denture reline done in a dental laboratory?

Yes, denture relines can be performed in a dental laboratory. Dentists may send your denture to a lab for relining, where technicians use specialized materials to improve the fit.

How long does a denture reline take?

The time required for a denture reline can vary, but it typically takes a few days. This allows the dental laboratory to complete the reline with precision.

Is a denture reline painful?

The reline process itself is not usually painful. However, you may experience some discomfort or soreness as you adjust to the newly relined denture. If you feel persistent pain, it’s essential to contact your dentist.

Can I eat and speak normally after a denture reline?

Once you’ve adjusted to the relined denture, you should be able to eat and speak more comfortably. It may take a short period for your mouth to adapt to the changes.

How do I care for my denture after a reline?

Proper denture care remains crucial after a reline. Clean your denture daily, remove it at night, and follow any specific care instructions provided by your dentist or the dental laboratory.

Can I reline my denture at home with over-the-counter kits?

While there are over-the-counter denture reline kits available, it is recommended to have a professional reline done by a dentist or dental laboratory for optimal results.

Remember, these are general answers, and it’s always best to consult with your dentist for personalized advice based on your specific situation.
