Rebase, Reline And Repairs

How long have you had your dentures?

Over time your mouth and dentures undergo inevitable changes. Dentures should be replaced every five to seven years to restore optimum fit, function and appearance. In the meantime, if your dentures require a repair or relining, your denturist can best advise you of the most suitable treatment plan.

Rebase 

Rebasing is usually done when the denture teeth have not worn out in comparison to the denture base material. It is a process of retrofitting dentures by replacing all the (pink) acrylic, which provides a stable denture without replacing the denture teeth.

Relines 

Relining consists of adding a new base (pink) material to the tissue side of a denture to ensure a snug fit. Your denturist will need to take an impression inside your existing denture to complete the reline.

Relining affects only the fit of your denture and will not change the appearance or address any wear of the denture teeth.

Relines are required when tissue changes occur due to resorption (shrinkage) which can be due to:

  • loss of weight
  • loss of teeth
  • loss of bone/tissue
  • disease or illness

Repairs

Never attempt to repair or alter your dentures yourself. Improperly repaired dentures (with Krazy Glue®) will not last long and may cause irritation due to the poor fit and have an adverse effect on your overall health. Repairs may be required when breakage or damage occurs, when one or more teeth need to be added to an existing denture (due to tooth extraction), or because of wear and tear. Often denture teeth and clasps can be added to existing partial dentures when natural teeth are lost.

A proper repair requires the addition of a new denture base (pink) material to the repair area and may require an intra-oral impression by the Denturist prior to repair. Most repairs can easily be done in one day. If your denture requires a repair, it may indicate underlying problems associated with the age of the denture, worn teeth, or poor fit.

Monica is so calm and so patient. She went above and beyond to help me fix my broken dentures when I needed them the most. She is understanding, compassionate and super kind. Monica was able to complete a difficult job within a couple of hours and provided me with the best possible service. She took the time to listen to my concerns and made me feel very comfortable. Because of her, I was able to continue with my original plans and travel abroad. I am so thankful for everything that she has done. She is truly amazing and one of a kind! If you are reading this, I would like to say....Thank-you so much Monica. I really appreciate all of your help.

Monica and Angela are wonderful people to deal with. They make you feel comfortable considering having dentures made can be an embarrassing experience. Monica listens to your concerns from the initial fitting until the final denture is made. The dentures look natural and felt comfortable, it's close to having a new set of real teeth without breaking the pocket. It took several visits to get the right fit but Monica always puts you at ease and is very professional, you feel comfortable discussing your expectations on how the denture should look and feel. I would recommend their clinic to anyone considering to have dentures made. Five star service from their Denture Clinic.

I agree 100% with what Rob Elst wrote in his review. Stanegate Denture Clinic is the best place to get your new dentures. I had to get new dentures and based on Monica recommendation I picked a new set (top and bottom) today. I have to say new dentures are just fantastic. No more using messy glue but what is most important Monica was able to produce is exceptional fit. No often now days one is able to find place like Stonegate clinic with professional and friendly staff which manage to make you feel welcome and relax. Thank you very much Monica and Angela!
