Trusted Denture Relines Fittings in Calgary

Over time, your mouth bones and gums shrink which alters the shape of the ridges that support your denture. The solution to this problem can be denture relines in Calgary. A reline is adding new base material to the tissue side of a denture so it fits properly. If this isn’t done when needed, there is a greater risk of them falling out. For any such requirement, choose Swiss Denture Clinic.

 

We are also glad to offer services for implant dentures and complete dentures.

Types of Relines

There are two main kinds of relines you can get depending on the severity of tissue change. They are:

  •  Hard Reline: If you have complete dentures, you should get this. It is the best way to make your dentures fit without needing a replacement. It is made by removing some plastic from the inside of your dentures covering the tissue and placing putty there. An impression is taken in the putty by placing the denture in your mouth. The putty is hardened and turned into a rubbery substance. This is then sent to the lab where it is replaced by adding acrylic to the tissue side of the denture.  
  • Soft Reline: Some patients have tender gums leading to sore spots. For such cases, soft relines are the solution. Our dentists use a pliable material to make it, which lasts for a year or two. This acts as a good alternative to the standard acrylic material that many dentures are made of; it is durable and more comfortable. 

Maintenance Tips for Your Denture Relines

Proper upkeep is essential for both your dentures and mouth. Here are some tips to follow:

  • Handle with Care: To prevent accidental breakage, stand over a folded towel while handling them.
  • Brush and Rinse Them Regularly: They must be brushed daily to remove food particles and plaque. You must not use toothpaste as it is abrasive and creates microscopic scratches where bacteria build up. Utilize a soft bristled brush explicitly designed for cleaning dentures.
  • Clean with a Denture Cleaner: Household cleansers and bleach can be harsh and should be avoided. Ultrasonic cleaners must be used. The denture is immersed in a bathtub-like device and then sound waves are produced which dislodge undesirable deposits.  

Frequently Asked Questions about Denture Relines

Can I reline dentures myself?

Yes. This is a cheaper and more convenient option. But the downside is that if you don’t do it right, you could mess up the denture fit.

 

How do I clean soft reline dentures?

You must rinse it under running water and brush it lightly. Don’t soak the denture in the cleaning solution. When you remove it from your mouth, store it in a container with plain water.

 

How long does it take to reline dentures?
The procedure may take around 30 minutes to an hour.
