Dentures being relined


Over time, your mouth and dentures undergo inevitable changes. Dentures should be replaced every 5 to 7 years to restore optimum fit, function and appearance. In the meantime, if your dentures require relining, your First Impression Denturist can best advise you of the most suitable treatment plan.


Relining consists of adding new base (pink) material to the tissue side of a denture to ensure a snug fit. Your Denturist will need to take an impression inside your existing denture to complete the reline.

Relining affects only the fit of your denture and will not change the appearance or address any wear of the denture teeth. Relines are required when tissue changes occurs due to resorption (shrinkage) which can be due to:


  • Loss of weight
  • Loss of teeth
  • Loss of bone/tissue
  • Disease or illness
  • Stress
  • Soft liners will not bond with Poligrip or Fixodent


Our Denturists can often offer same-day service for relines to minimize the amount of time you are without your dentures. Have your dentures reassessed with us at First Impression Denture Clinic. Contact Us to book your denture reline appointment.
