When you first receive your dentures, your gum tissues will be in the process of changing shape because it is no longer supporting the roots of any teeth that you have lost. It’s rather typical for this to occur for the first three months after you lose your teeth. This will result in a need to have your dentures base relined for your dentures to have a comfortable fit and quality aesthetic appeal.
The denturists at Andrew E Fast Denture Clinic recommend that denture wearers have their dentures relined every 2-3 years. This process involves rebuilding the inside of your denture. This re-alignment works to correct gum shrinkage and can make your dentures more comfortable. Most insurance companies cover relines every 2-3 years, and we directly bill your insurance provider.
If you’re experiencing discomfort with your dentures or feel that it is time for a reline, please stop by our office or give us a call.
