Denture Relines


Do you find yourself struggling to eat and control your dentures? Often when you least expect it, your smile comes undone.

Denture relines are an important and definitely a regular requirement for denture maintenance. All too often it creeps into a denture wearers mindset that once dentures are fitted and feel comfortable there is no further dental treatment required. It is important to realise that this is not the case and the question is clearly a sign that dentures often require attention and maintenance and need to be refitted.

When dentures are first placed and teeth are removed, rapid soft tissue and hard bone begin to resorb (shrink) and reform. This process happens immediately after teeth have been removed and often a reline (refit/adjustment) is required within 9 months.

Again, as more time passes these tissue and bone changes are ongoing. For some this can be reasonably constant and others, not so much. Research will also tell us the lower jawbone is always more susceptible to these changes. Another reason for refitting dentures can often be a result of weight loss. Patients find that when they have lost weight their denture(s) can become ill-fitting and may require relining.

"Thankyou to Robert Courtier for his outstanding work on my new teeth. He made the whole process so easy. My teeth are very natural looking and I'm very happy with the outcome. This was a nerve wracking decision to have teeth out but now I've got the new denture and they don't look false I'm thrilled."

"Duchenne Technicians and staff are AMAZING people!!
I had lost so much confidence because of missing teeth, I would try and hide them as much as I could, I'd talk with my hand close to my mouth, and wouldn't smile for people or even family photos. My new dentures fit perfectly and the process was fast and efficient. Thank you so much Tristan for giving me my smile back, you've been an amazing."
