Broken, worn or ill-fitting dentures do not always need replacing. In fact, we can assess very quickly if you are a candidate for a rebase, reline or repair. In the case of repairs, we can often offer same-day service.
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 of the acrylic denture base with new acrylic, which provides a stable denture without replacing the denture teeth.
Relines consists of adding new base material to the tissue side of a denture to adjust the fitting of the denture. We will need to take an impression inside your existing denture. Relining affects only the fit of your denture and will not change the appearance. Relines are required when tissue changes occur due to resorption (shrinkage).

It is possible to restore an existing broken or cracked denture to its original state. Repairs may be required when breakage or chipping occurs, when one or more teeth need to be added to an existing denture (due to tooth extraction), or due to wear and tear.
Most repairs can be done in one day. If your denture requires a repair, it may be indicative of underlying problems, including age of the denture, worn teeth or improper fitting. Our staff at David Barrick Denture Clinic will give you instructions on how to care for your dentures to help prevent breakage from occurring.
