Get your dentures repaired in one day.
Your dentures need TLC every day, just like natural teeth do. Cleaning and maintaining your dentures is essential if you want to keep them looking and feeling good. But even with proper care, dentures may require occasional repairs. And that’s where your denturist can help! There are many reasons that your dentures might need to be repaired, including a crack in the base, a loose tooth in the denture, or a chipped tooth. Many of these issues can be repaired in just a few hours.
Contact your denturist so they can inspect the damage and find the best solution.
The way your dentures fit will change over time as your jaw bone shrinks. Your dentures could become loose and even cause some discomfort. If this happens to you, it could be time for a denture reline. You’ll often find this makes an incredible difference in how well your dentures fit and feel. Denturists take an impression of your mouth to reline your dentures and then add a new acrylic base to your dentures. For most people, denture relines are recommended every one and a half to three years to keep them looking and feeling great. Denture relines are done on-site at our denture clinics in Richibucto and Bouctouche. They’re usually done during the first appointment of the day, so you can return at the end of the day to pick up your relined dentures.

How much does a repair cost?
The cost of denture repair depends on the extent of the repair, whether reinforcement is required, if teeth need to be replaced, any impressions/molds that need to be taken, and a variety of other factors.
What is a denture reline?
A denture reline consists of adding new pink base material to the tissue side of a denture to ensure a proper fit. Denturists take an intra-oral impression inside your existing denture to complete the reline. Denture relining only alters the fit of your denture and will not change the way they look or address any wear and tear of the denture teeth. Relines are needed when tissue changes occur due to resorption (shrinkage). This can be due to weight loss, tooth loss, loss of bone/tissue, disease, or illness.
How long does it take to reline a denture?
Denture relining can usually be done in one day. We book you an appointment in the morning to have impressions taken with your denture so we can return them to you at the end of the day.
How much does a reline cost?
The cost depends on whether we reline a layer of acrylic to refit your denture or replace the entire base.

How long does a soft reline last?
Soft liners are applied to the tissue-fitting surface on the base of your denture. Liners act as a shock-absorbing cushion while you chew. They can be applied to new or old dentures. Soft liners have a porous nature, which means they may need to be replaced more often.
