Relines

The tissues and bones in your mouth are constantly changing while your denture remains the same, making it necessary to refit your denture periodically. Other factors such as illness, disease, weight loss and the loss of a tooth can also make relines necessary. With relines, impressions are taken and new acrylic material is added to the underside of your dentures that rest against your natural tissues to restore the fit. Relines are generally needed approximately every 2 years but vary for each individual. If your denture is feeling loose or ill-fitting and/or you need to use an adhesive to keep it in place, have an examination with your denturist.

Signs You Require Denture Relining

To keep dentures fitting perfectly, regular denture relining is necessary. Dentures can deteriorate with time or from improper maintenance. If there is a problem with your dentures, visit your denturist.

 

Some signs we recommend paying attention to are:

  • Changes in speech such as slurring and developing a lisp
  • Oral ulcers or sores
  • Discomfort while wearing dentures
  • Difficulty chewing

If you notice any of these signs or if your last reline was more than two years ago, please visit us for a denture reline in Nanaimo.

Rebases

In some cases the acrylic portion of a denture wears out at a faster pace than the teeth, making it necessary to replace or "rebase" the pink acrylic material while keeping the existing teeth.

Repairs

General wear and tear can place stress on your dentures, leading to micro-cracks which eventually worsen. A denture repair aims to address and fix any damages to your existing dentures. If your dentures have a chip, a fracture in the acrylic, a tooth fell out, or you notice a small crack, we advise you to come in for a repair. Ignoring the damage can aggravate it and cause you discomfort. We understand going without your dentures can be inconvenient. For this reason, we try our best to repair your dentures as soon as possible. We can almost always provide same-day repairs within 2- 3 hours. 


Please reach out to us if you'd like to make an appointment for denture repair in Nanaimo.

Soft Liners

There are certain cases where individuals may benefit from the application of a soft liner to their denture. Our soft liners are made of Molloplast B®, the dental industry leader in soft liners, and are applied to the hard surface of your denture to provide an additional layer of comfort and improve retention. They are used most often on the lower jaw. Soft liners aid in situations where the gums have flattened or for individuals who are more sensitive to wearing dentures in general. Soft liners also benefit people experiencing chronic sore spots. They can be applied to new dentures or retrofitted to your existing pair.

Mouth Guards

Any sport which presents a risk of contact or collision to the face including hockey, football, baseball, boxing, soccer, basketball, gymnastics, rugby, BMX biking, etc., can result in injuries to the jaw and teeth. Wearing a custom mouth guard can prevent or reduce the extent of sport injuries, including lost or chipped teeth, injuries to lips and cheeks, jaw fractures and even concussions, while allowing you to safely participate in the sports you enjoy.

Tooth Whitening

Your natural teeth might become stained for various reasons, including tea, coffee, nicotine, and tetracycline consumption. In cases where existing teeth are stained and will be noticeable next to a partial denture, a teeth whitening agent can be applied to improve the aesthetics. Preferably, the treatment would be done before a new prosthetic is fabricated so the denturist can assist you in choosing a tooth shade that will blend well with the colour of your natural teeth. You cannot use a tooth whitening agent on prosthetic teeth.

Cleaning and Polishing

Like natural teeth, dentures require regular cleaning. Stains may develop and the porous surface of your dentures can accumulate bacteria and calculus which cause them to weaken and negatively impact your oral health. A visit for a quick cleaning and polishing can restore your denture’s natural lustre and finish.

Name Insertion

Your name can be permanently embedded into a discreet location of your denture, not visible while you are wearing it. This simple procedure can really benefit individuals in care homes and hospital settings where tracing back misplaced dentures to their owners can be challenging.
