Types of Denture Relines
There are 3 main types of relines, also known as liners.
Permanent Hard Liners
A permanent hard reline can either be done with an office cured plastic, or it can be done with a laboratory cured plastic. Due to the special processing, the laboratory cured reline tends to last longer. Both procedures are ready the same day, and we will recommend the type best suited to your personal needs.
Permanent Soft Liners
A permanent soft reline can be done here at the office and processed in our in-house lab. These laboratory processed soft liners will stay soft for several years. They do require special care and cleaning as they may stain if not cleaned regularly.
Temporary Soft Liners
A temporary soft reline is done to compensate for the shrinkage of bone due to recent extraction’s or an excessive loss of weight. They are designed to last if three (3) months or until the shrinkage has stopped. They are then replaced with a permanent liner.
Relines are a new layer of denture material that is form fitted to your mouth to help improve your denture, and overall fit. The new material that is placed in your denture does not change the appearance of your denture on the outside, but helps to maintain a healthy bite, strong chewing forces in your jaws, and a healthy smile. Speech irregularities may be improved for better communication skills.
