Denture Repairs

Apple Denture & Implant Solutions provides same day denture repairs and relines in Scarborough and Port Hope. Dentures can crack/break in many situations. In cases when the denture breaks in the mouth, there is usually an underlying problem that caused it to crack or break. We will examine your mouth and your prosthesis to determine what exactly happened and fix it so it will not happen again. Most denture repairs are done the same day and emergency repairs can even be done within 1-2 hours.

Denture Relines

After teeth are extracted from your mouth, there is a non-stop, irreversible process known as bone shrinkage, or bone resorption that will occur for the rest of your life. Your bone rapidly shrinks within the first 6-12 months after extractions. After that a reline is needed every 2-3 years to restore the fit of the denture and re-adapt it to your gums. Denture relining is necessary for your dentures to fit properly in your mouth. The frequency and number of denture relines that you’ll need depends on the changes in tissue and bone resorption, which can be influenced by a variety of factors:

• Loss of weight
• Poor oral hygiene
• Medication & substance use
• Disease or illness

Following a denture reline, you will notice decreased accumulation of food under the denture, along with an improved fit and increased comfort.

Types Of Denture Relines

There are three main types of denture relines: soft, hard, and temporary. Each type of denture reline is applicable based on the extent of tissue and bone resorption and the type of denture currently being worn.

Soft Denture Reline: A soft reline is a great solution if your gums are tender and your dentures are causing sore spots in your mouth. A soft denture reline involves a cushioned buffer between your gum tissue and your dentures. The liner keeps your dentures in place and ensures a comfortable and accurate fit. A soft reline will typically last for a year or two.

Hard Denture Reline :A hard denture reline works the same way that a soft denture reline does, but with a more solid material for a longer lasting solution. A hard denture reline is typically done for full dentures and ensures maximum contact between your dentures and your gums for a perfect fit.

Temporary Denture Reline: A temporary denture reline is reserved for patients with very sore gums. Temporary denture relines help reduce inflammation and swelling of gums and are intended to be used for only a couple of weeks until a new denture or hard denture reline is the appropriate solution.

 Denture Rebase

A denture rebase procedure is typically required after ~5 years of wearing the same set of dentures. The acrylic material of your denture base wears out much faster than the denture teeth themselves and with the changes in your gum tissues as well, your dentures won’t fit nearly as well after several years.

A denture rebase replaces the base of your denture to ensure a more comfortable and more precise fit. Rather than getting a whole new set of dentures, consider rebasing your dentures instead. Apple Denture Clinic provides a wide variety of denture solutions to help restore and repair your dentures to look and feel just like new.

Denture Reline & Rebase FAQ

What is the difference between a reline and a rebase?

A denture rebase is a more comprehensive adjustment of your denture. Rather than replacing the lining on the tissue side of the denture, a denture rebase replaces all of the acrylic material in the base of the denture. This type of adjustment is used when the teeth are in good condition, but the base needs a large adjustment that can’t be solved by a reline alone.

How often should you have dentures relined?

This can depend on a number of factors. A soft reline will last between 1 and 2 years, while a hard reline can last between 2 and 3 years. Other factors include how well cared for the dentures are, the patient’s oral hygiene habits, and the rate of degradation of the patient’s gums and bone structure.

Why is denture relining necessary?

Denture relining is a pretty routine procedure for denture wearers that helps ensure a comfortable fit. You should consider getting your dentures relined if:

  • Your dentures become loose
  • You feel pinching or rubbing on your gums
  • Your teeth are extracted 
  • Your dentures have just been repaired
  • You are experiencing constant discomfort

What is the difference between a hard reline and a soft reline?

The difference between these types of relines lies in the materials that are used. A hard reline uses materials that are similar to the hardened materials used to make the base of the denture. A soft reline uses softer materials that tend to be more comfortable for the patient when wearing the denture.

Why would I need to get my dentures rebased?

A denture rebase is a more drastic adjustment of your dentures and is typically needed when the denture teeth are in great condition, but the acrylic base needs to be adjusted. A denturist might recommend getting your dentures rebased if:

  • The base of your dentures is becoming weak
  • Your dentures aren’t fitting comfortably
  • You’ve damaged or broken your dentures
  • You want to make your immediate dentures your permanent set of dentures

How often should you get your dentures rebased?

The exact timeframe varies from one patient to the next depending on how rapidly their gums change shape, how they maintain their dentures, and their oral hygiene habits. However, on average denture wearers should consider rebasing their dentures after 5 years to ensure a more comfortable and precise fit.

Can I reline my dentures myself?

We would not recommend you relining your dentures. Odds are that doing so on your own will result in your dentures not fitting properly, and will put you at risk of irritating your gums and accelerating the degradation process. In the best-case scenario, this will lead to the dentures needing more work to properly fix the lining, which will cost you more. In the worst-case scenario, you may need to have the denture replaced altogether.

Ask for Truc Nguyen when you come to this location. She is very patient, detailed oriented, explained the whole process to us and made us feel at home. Wonderful personality from start to finish. I would recommend you visit her for your Denture and Implant solutions.
Thanks to Annie Feng, I have been fitted with this tiny denture. She listened to all my concerns and was able to shape and customize the denture so I barely know I'm wearing it and can put in and out with one hand! Thanks again for a wonderful experience!
Decided to go with Apple Denture clinic based on their excellent reviews and after visiting the clinic for a free complimentary consultation.So happy I made this decision, my experience with the clinic in Scarborough was truly great. The office is very clean and modern, very convenient location with lots of parking and I felt welcome the moment I've stepped in. The service is outstanding and the price is reasonable.I am very grateful to Serghei Ischenco for the amazing job and excellent service, Thank You Serghei! Serghei is very professional, meticulous, a real master in his field and a very pleasant person to deal with. He explained all the procedures, materials used and technologies and addressed all my questions and concerns in a friendly, reassuring manner. It was very kind of him to minimize the number of visits since I had to drive to Scarborough (from Waterloo). The over implants denture he made for me was done quickly and was a perfect fit from the first time I've tried it on. Just a few quick touch ups on the spot and felt like I can forget that I'm wearing dentures. The denture is of high quality, it looks very natural and all the work was done in a gentle, caring way that I really appreciated. I also want to extend my thanks to Livia for taking care of my appointments and for making me feel welcome every time I visited.It was a very positive experience for me I would highly recommend Serghei Ischenco at Apple Denture clinic to everyone who is looking for an excellent denturist.
Truc at Apple Denture is a treasure!My elderly father was very nervous at his first visit and he is also extremely hard of hearing. Truc was so patient and made sure he understood what she was saying and Dad was very comfortable at his next few visits.Today Dad got his new dentures and Truc made sure they were as comfortable as possible and that he knew how to care for them before we left. We never felt rushed and always felt like we were in good hands.
