Denture Relines in Vegreville, Fort Saskatchewan, Gibbons, Redwater, & Surrounding Areas

Dentures must be maintained to ensure they function effectively for longer. Sometimes even when your denture's general performance is satisfactory, you may experience other issues. The fit may become loose, or sores may emerge due to changes in your mouth. At Fort Saskatchewan Denture Clinic Ltd, we provide denture relining and repairs in Vegreville to extend the life of your dentures. We also serve other areas, including Vegreville, Gibbons, Fort Saskatchewan, and Redwater.

​Accidents happen, as a result of which dentures could crack, break, or fall out of place. But don't worry! We can repair the cracks in no time. Denture relines and repairs can frequently serve as an effective temporary solution until the client is ready to replace a denture. Nothing is more annoying than being unable to wear your denture for an extended time. We understand that, and that’s why we handle relines and repairs quickly and on-site for your convenience. Connect with us to find out more about our denture solutions.

Types of Denture Relines

There are different types of denture relines:

 

  • Soft reline: Soft relines involve adding a pliable material to the denture base for a limited period. This reline offers added comfort, especially for patients who find it difficult to wear regular dentures due to tender gums or sore spots.

  • Hard reline: Hard relines involve reshaping the denture using a more durable material similar to the original denture base. The process ensures that the denture fits the gum and mouth contour closely.

  • Temporary or chairside reline: This solution allows the inflammation in the oral tissues to subside (especially if a patient hasn't been without their dentures for a long time, leading to sore gums). The dentist uses a medicated reline material to reduce the soreness and promote healing.

  • Laboratory reline: For this type of reline, the dentist takes an impression of the patient's mouth and sends the denture to a dental laboratory to have the reline done. It ensures a precise fit but might require the patient to be without dentures for a day or more.

Signs You Need Denture Relines

Here are some signs that you might need denture relines:

  • Dentures not fitting snugly, causing discomfort.

  • Pain or mouth sores due to dentures.

  • Ill-fitting dentures hinder proper chewing.

  • Altered or unclear speech due to denture fit.

  • Regular reliance on adhesives for a better fit.

  • Sagging mouth due to loose dentures.

  • Mouth shape changes affect denture fit.

Benefits of Denture Relines

Denture relines have many benefits, including:

  • Comfort: Dentures can lose their snug fit over time due to natural changes in the gum and bone structure. Relining helps to realign the denture's base to the current contour of your gums, providing a more comfortable fit and reducing irritations.

  • Oral health: Ill-fitting dentures can lead to gum irritations, ulcers, and infections. By ensuring the dentures fit properly, the risks of these complications decrease.

  • Functionality: A secure denture fit enhances daily functions like eating and speaking. You might find it hard to chew certain foods without a proper fit, which could lead to nutritional deficiencies. Moreover, slipping dentures can cause slurred speech or unwanted noises when talking.

  • Prevent breakage: Loose dentures are prone to movements, increasing the likelihood of being dropped or damaged. When a denture fits well, it remains stable in the mouth, reducing the chances of accidental breakage.

  • Maintain appearance: The jawbone tends to shrink over time, especially after tooth loss. This can result in a sunken facial appearance. A well-fitting denture supports the lips and cheeks, maintaining a natural, youthful appearance.

  • Speech improvement: Loose dentures can interfere with speech clarity. A properly relined denture improves speech articulation and confidence in communication.

  • Prevents gum irritation: Ill-fitting dentures can cause friction against the gums, leading to soreness and inflammation. Relining ensures a smooth interface, reducing the risk of irritation.

  • Boosts self-confidence: Individuals can enjoy increased self-confidence and a sense of normal appearance and interactions with properly fitting dentures.

  • Oral health maintenance: A well-fitting denture minimizes the risk of gum infections and other oral health issues that can arise from poorly fitting dentures.

  • Cost-efficient: Regular relining is typically more affordable than purchasing a new set of dentures. It's a cost-effective way to maintain the functionality and comfort of your current dentures.
