How A Denture Rebase Can Extend The Life Of Your Dentures And Save You Money

Modern dentures are designed to be comfortable and resilient, but over time the fit of your dentures may change or they may become damaged. Although dentures are made of strong materials, they are in use every day of your life and accidents can happen. These two factors, as well as the general wear and tear as your dentures age, can lead to damage and deterioration of the denture base. This does not have to dictate a new set of dentures. Denture rebasing is an economic way of ensuring proper denture fit and repair to extend the life of your dentures and save you money.

How A Denture Rebase Works And Why It’s Beneficial

What Is A Denture Rebase? Rebasing your dentures involves replacing and retrofitting the base of the dentures. Rebasing is typically completed when there is some form of damage or deterioration on the denture base or because the fit of the denture is no longer comfortable due to changes in the mouth. A denture rebase can be completed fairly quickly, typically only taking about 2 days. Denture relines are also an option for adjusting dentures, but this is typically to change the fit of the denture and is not suitable for when the base has suffered damage. Rebasing dentures is commonly performed when the denture base is broken, weakened, or when it is an immediate/temporary denture.

How Long Can A Denture Rebase Extend The Life Of My Dentures? Dentures can typically last about every 5 to 7 years without much maintenance or repair, but having your dentures rebased around this 5 to 7 year mark can extend the life of the dentures for 10 years or more, depending on how well the dentures are taken care of. 

How Can A Rebase Save Me Money? Because a rebase uses the teeth of your current dentures as opposed to creating a brand new set of dentures, you are not paying for the teeth of the denture, which is a great way to save money. It’s more economical to get a rebase than a whole new denture. If you do need new dentures, it will likely be because the dentures have been worn down or damaged beyond repair, and these occurrences are not as common as a break or deterioration in the palate of the denture. Importantly, a denture rebase isn’t only for damages or wear; if your dentures have become uncomfortable to wear and a reline is not enough to solve the issue, a rebase may be able to fix this problem. When your jaw bone does not have teeth embedded in it, the bone can deteriorate and become smaller. This can lead to your otherwise fine dentures not fitting as comfortably as they should. Some people may think this requires completely new dentures, but the reality is that a rebase will make your old dentures fit correctly again and it will cost less than getting a whole new set.
