Denture Rebase & Repairs
Rebasing may be recommended when the the denture base material is much more worn than the teeth.
Rebasing involves replacing the entire acrylic denture base, providing a stable denture without replacing the denture teeth. You may require a denture rebase if your denture is old or cracked. A rebase is very similar to relining. However, a rebase replaces all the pink-acrylic denture base material instead of just the lining.
Reasons for the rebase procedure may include:
- Broken or damaged denture
- Weakened or old pink denture base
- Replacement of an immediate denture
A variety of circumstance can lead to a damaged denture and should be addressed immediately. Repairs restore a fractured or damaged denture close to its original condition.
