What Is Denture Relining?

Dentures are a great way to restore the look and function of missing teeth. Over time, however, patients’ jaw and gum shapes can change and cause dentures to feel loose and uncomfortable. Dentists will often recommend a denture reline when patients complain of ill-fitting dentures. This is a safe and effective way to change the shape of the denture where it connects to the gums. Here is a better look at denture relining:

There are two types of denture relining: Hard and soft. A soft reline is the most common, because it is often the most comfortable and can be done in the dentist’s office. The dentist or a trained assistant will line the denture with a liquid polymer that will harden into a soft layer of added comfort. A hard reline is done with a different, harder solution that is similar to the denture. Hard relines tend to last longer than soft relines.
