St. Albert’s Denture Reline Service
Denture relines can dramatically improve the retention and comfort of your existing dentures. A reline involves us taking a precise impression in your current dentures to capture any space between your gums and your denture. Then, material (hard or soft, depending on the type of reline) is added to precisely fill that space.
Bone loss occurs naturally over time, and this is a common cause for needing a denture reline. But there are other factors that can contribute to your dentures fitting loosely. If you have experienced significant weight loss, weight gain, or change in medication, it may be time for a denture reline.

Frequently Asked Questions
Your dentures may need to be relined occasionally to ensure a proper, comfortable fit. This involves resurfacing the denture with a new material to fill in any gaps or spaces between the denture and your gums or other dental tissues.
Most soft relines for dentures last about 1-2 years. A hard reline will typically last two years or longer. As your gums change, they may require more frequent relining to ensure a proper, comfortable fit. Your gums can be affected by all kinds of factors. Things like weight gain, weight loss, and any change in medication can alter the way your dentures fit. If you have gone through one of the three changes above and your dentures are loose fitting, it might be time for a denture reline. Patients that have had teeth extracted will need to have a reline done 6 months after their extractions because a certain amount of bone loss and shrinking of the gums will occur in that time.
The cost of your dentures will vary depending on your specific treatment plan. In some cases, people over 65 can be fully covered for standard dentures by the government depending on their income.
