Denture Repairs & Reliners, Permanent Soft Liners & Cleaning

If you have a loose or broken denture, you may not require a completely new denture. Carlo Povegliano, D.D., F.C.A.D. can help repair and reline your loose or broken dentures to create a comfortable fit.

Why Would my Dentures Require Relining?

Most often, relining occurs when the jaw bone and gum tissues change and shrink. There are many reasons your jaw bone and gum tissues can change including:

  • Loss of teeth
  • Post immediate dentures
  • Weight loss
  • Shrinking of the upper or lower jaw (Bone loss)
  • Sickness or disease

We will take an impression of your oral tissue inside your dentures to provide a working model. Based on your unique needs, we will add new acrylic base material to your denture to produce a correct fit. The appearance of your dentures will not change.


Repairs restore a damaged or fractured denture close to its original condition. Most of the time, denture repair procedures can be performed on the same day. Carlo Povegliano, D.D., F.C.A.D. will advise you of the condition of your dentures and the required steps needed to prevent further breakage.

What is a Permanent Soft Liner?

A soft liner acts as a shock absorber or cushion between your gums and the hard plastic base of dentures. The permanent soft liner is fitted to the surface of a denture and this soft material rests next to your gums. New dentures can be fabricated with soft liners or you can place soft liners in your existing dentures.

Is a Soft Liner Right for You?

If you are looking for relief and comfort from extreme soreness in your gums, if your gums have sharp bony areas, or if you have severely receded or flat gums that do not tolerate the stress of dentures, then permanent soft liners may be the solution.

What are the Advantages of Soft Liners?

The main advantage of soft liners is greater comfort. According to the Denturist Association of Ontario, “a significant number of denture wearers with chronic discomfort have experienced great relief - clinical evidence indicates that almost everyone tolerates soft liner materials with soft liners, many denture wearers report that they can chew food more comfortably a proven technology, soft liners have been offered to patients for over 20 years, and over that time the materials and technology have steadily improved.”

Other Considerations

The Proper cleanings and good home care must be given to soft liners. Soft liners also require regular follow-up visits with a denturist to examine the fit of dentures, the health of a patient’s oral tissues, and to ensure professional cleaning.
