Denture Rebase & Repairs

Rebase

Rebase and/or Repair DenturesA rebase 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. A rebase is the process of replacing the entire acrylic denture base providing a stable denture without replacing the denture teeth. A rebase 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
