Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. Depending on your individual case, you may be a candidate for full or partial dentures. Full dentures are used when all-natural teeth are either missing or extracted and are replaced with a full set of dentures. If you have remaining natural, healthy teeth a partial denture may be a better solution. Partials are similar to a dental bridge, but unlike a bridge, they do not remain in your mouth permanently.
Dentures are a great solution to missing teeth. However, over time denture usage may result in loss of bone and gums. This creates the need for a denture reline or an entirely new prosthetic.
Has your once comfortable denture become loose and irritating? Try a denture reline to improve fit and overall comfortability. Often, daily wear, weight loss, weight gain, or water retention can affect the condition of your denture or change the shape of your mouth.
A dental reline helps you get a better fit for your denture and prolongs the life of the denture. Since a well-fitting denture enables you to eat comfortably, so that you remain healthy and fit in the long run.
