Denture Rebase & Repairs in Sunnyvale
Your mouth changes as time goes on, and your dentures will need to work periodically to keep pace with these changes, as well as to maintain a good bite and proper function. Sometimes, dentures may suddenly break or become damaged.
What Is A Denture Rebase?
Rebasing may be recommended when the teeth of your denture are still in good condition and have not worn out in comparison to the denture base material.
Rebasing is the process of replacing the entire acrylic denture base, providing a stable denture without replacing the denture teeth. A rebase for a denture may be required if your denture is old or is cracked. A rebase is very similar to relining, the difference being that 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
