Don’t wait until your dentures are loose before caring for them. If you do, you risk fracture of the denture or teeth, or both. You’ve paid a lot of money for your dentures, so you want to take care of them. By doing this they last longer and serve their purpose. Ideally, 2 – 3 years is the optimal time to refit (reline or rebase) your denture. This also allows us to re-establish your bite. Relines/rebases provides another benefit to you — minimizing bone loss. When your denture fits properly, it won’t move, and with less movement on your gums then minimal bone loss occurs.
