Rebasing may be a viable option to consider when the teeth of your denture are still not worn out compared to the denture base material. Rebasing is the process that results in a stable denture without replacing the denture teeth. This is accomplished by replacing the entire acrylic denture base. The only difference between rebasing and relining is that a rebase replaces all the pink-acrylic denture base material instead of just replacing the lining.
Reason to proceed with rebasing may include:
- Damaged or broken denture
- Old or weakened pink denture base
- An immediate denture that requires replacement
