Does your denture still have the temporary reline in it that was put in a long time ago? Temporary relines attract bacteria, and can often look and smell bad.
While a denture reline provides a new surface inside the denture that touches your gums, a denture rebase involves replacing all of the pink base of the denture but saving and using the same teeth and is a great option. This is usually a one day procedure with one appointment in the morning and one in the afternoon at our in-house lab in Bangor, ME. A rebase gives you a brand new denture in one day using the teeth of your old denture, and is typically half the cost of a new denture or less.
What kind of denture rebase do you need?
- Soft Rebase - A temporary lining that some dental offices call a rebase. However, this is temporary and WE strive to provide a more permanent solution.
- Hard Rebase - A long-lasting solution that doesn't require a new fitting and results in maximum contact between the dentures and your mouth. This is the option we offer at our office.
