Both denture repairs and relines are essential to preserving the durability of your dentures
Dentures are a great way to replace teeth that have been lost, damaged, or decayed. Because missing teeth can lead to other serious oral problems, trouble eating, and even nutritional deficiencies, replacing those does more than boost your confidence.
Dentures, on the other hand, need special maintenance to last. The possibility of a denture requiring maintenance, such as a repair or reline, increases with the length of time it has been worn.
Both denture repairs and relines are essential to preserving the durability of your dentures. Your denturist will be able to tell you which option is best for you after a thorough checkup. It is possible to avoid the need for repairs by keeping your dentures in good condition, but a reline is required for every set of dentures.
The Importance of Professional Denture Repair
Some people with dentures try to repair them at home, but this often makes the condition considerably worse and the dentures harder to fix. The professional denture experts who provide denture repair services have received extensive training to repair dentures properly. This implies they are well-equipped to fix any issue with a denture and are well-versed in the necessary techniques.
When a denture needs fixing, the procedure is called “relining.” It’s necessary when…
- A tooth has been broken or chipped.
- A replacement clasp is needed.
- Due to wear and tear, the denture has been damaged
- There’s a broken tooth
Biting down too hard puts stress on the front teeth, making them more susceptible to damage like chips, cracks, and even breaks. If the denture is dropped, this can also happen. Dentures should be checked before being used again after being dropped or after the wearer suspects damage from eating hard foods. When it comes to dentures, it’s best to be safe than sorry and avoid using damaged ones.
It’s time for a dental checkup if you notice any of these symptoms:
- Oral sores
- Irritated gums
- Bad breath and foul odors
Do not try to fix your denture at home; doing so might lead to irreparable damage and other oral health problems. Professionals should only attempt denture repairs.

Even with careful maintenance, your dentures will need to be relined.
Denture adjustments are necessary due to the natural aging process of your gums. A diet high in tough substances may also hasten the time when a reline is required.
Dentures can adjust their fit by getting a reline, in which case a new base is added to the tissue side of the denture. Denture relining will not improve the appearance of the dentures or make them easier to clean. It’s strictly for aesthetics.
Some of the most typical signs that you require a dental reline are:
- Difficulty chewing
- Changes in face structure
- Lip-smacking, stuttering, and denture-slipping
- Regular pain

When should denture wearers reline their dentures?
When dentures no longer fit properly, their wearers should have them relined. The corrective procedure for soft denture relines can last between one and two years, while the corrective procedure for hard denture relines can last for at least two years. Patients in need can get temporary relines done on their dentures, but they will need to get them completely relined again in a few weeks.
