What Is A Soft Reline And Why Is It Necessary??

Dentures don't fit as well as they used to? Your denture should fit comfortably when you first get it, but over time, this may change due to changes in your oral cavity, weight loss, or bone resorption brought on by tooth extraction. Your gums will eventually start to recede, creating unwanted space between your gums and dentures.
Afterward, your dentures will become loose and unstable, which may begin to rub against the gums, causing irritation, sores, and discomfort. This is the first indication that you need a soft reline.


You may want to consider a soft reline procedure to help improve your oral health and overall quality of life. Relining your dentures is recommended if you are experiencing discomfort, sore spots, or denture instability due to bone loss or shrinking gums. 
A dentist can do this procedure at their office to improve the fit of your denture, but you can also do this yourself at home with a soft-liner product, saving you a trip to the dentist's office.

What Is A Soft Denture Reline And What To Expect?

A soft reline is a temporary solution that involves filling the unwanted space in your denture with a soft, pliable material. The soft material is then shaped and trimmed to fit the contours of the patient's mouth, making your dentures fit again like new with improved comfort and fit.
Many new denture wearers find it hard to wear their dentures at first, because their healing gums are just too sensitive.  A soft reline can help to cushion the denture and reduce the pressure on the gums, making it more comfortable to wear. These relines use a soft, more porous and pliable material to make acrylic dentures more comfortable. Some patients even reline their already fitting dentures, simply to make them softer on their gums. 
Some benefits include:
  • Improve the stability and retention of the denture, allowing it to stay in place more securely.
  • You no longer have to bite and chew on that hard acrylic,¬†providing significant relief if you are experiencing irritation due to an ill-fitting denture.
  • A well-fitting denture is essential for proper chewing and eating, allowing you to eat a wider range of foods and enjoy a better quality of life.¬†
[It's important to consult with a dental professional to determine if a soft reline is appropriate for your individual needs.]


What is the Cost of a Denture Reline and How to Get an Affordable Price?

The cost of a soft reline at the dentist can be quite expensive. Depending on the type of denture, and factors such as location, a soft reline can cost anywhere from $150 to $500 (per arch)! This will be a routine cost during your journey with dentures, it is not a one-time expense. Soft relines can last for several months to a few years before needing to be replaced, depending on the individual's needs.
With immediate dentures, your mouth is constantly changing and needs adjustments.  During the first year, relines will be needed on a regular basis, about once a month because of your shrinking gums. This can become costly, especially since relines aren't usually covered by insurance companies. 
If there's even a remote probability that you'll be covered. Definitely get in touch with your insurance provider to see if they can help you get covered.


If you cannot get to a dentist or can't afford a dentist when a reline is needed, then a home denture reline will get the job done until you can visit your dentist. Making your own relines has many advantages, such as temporarily making your gums feel more secure and at ease without having to wait days or weeks for the next appointment, all while being simple to do!
