Over time, the fit of your dentures will deteriorate. This can be due to a number of factors, from general wear and tear, a change to your mouth or gums from damage to an improper denture diet. Even the most durable denture mouldings are prone to warping or deterioration. Given that your mouth is constantly changing and adapting if your denture is left without being relined, the gum tissue will begin to grow into or around your denture.
To be able to maintain the fit of your denture to its absolute optimal level, you should book your denture relines appointment every one-to-two years. A denture reline is the process of adding new material to the original base in order to counter the natural degeneration of the oral structures once teeth have been removed from the jaw. Once completed, the teeth are aligned so that the user can begin chewing effectively with the natural jaw movement once again.

A hard reline is when the material, often a type of acrylic, is applied to the denture base in order to fortify the base of the denture. However, there is often a trade off for using harder materials. While hard materials are known for their strength and durability, they can often irritate the gums, teeth and other surrounding tissue. Those looking for longevity and durability out of their denture are best off with a hard reline.
As their name would suggest, soft denture relines are constructed using a softer material. This is usually done with a combination of wax or rubber type substances. These more pliable materials require less ‘wear-in’ time and are more comfortable with fewer sore spots. This extra comfort and improved form factor can sacrifice some durability and performance of the denture. If comfort and needing a more natural feel to your denture is paramount, a soft reline might be the best option.
With general usage and resulting wear and tear, denture patients will require a reline and rebase every one-to-two years. This can vary due to a number of factors including, eating hard foods often, clenching or grinding of the denture or changes to the gum tissue due to disease or weight fluctuation.
There are a number of symptoms which signal that a reline and rebase might be due for your denture:
Experiencing any one of these symptoms can not only be irritating but in some cases can cause further injury to yourself and damage to your dentures.
