Denture Rebases Q & A

What is the purpose of a rebase?

Rebasing a denture corrects problems with fit, preventing diseased gums, and making your dentures more comfortable and easy to wear. Over time, your gum tissue often changes. That can leave spaces between your gums and the base of your dentures.

Those spaces can cause the dentures to rub against your gums in a new way, which can be painful. It also makes enjoying your favorite foods difficult.

Rebasing is also necessary to correct the following issues:

  • Imperfections in the base material
  • Defects in manufacturing
  • Discolored denture base
  • Refining the fit of immediate dentures

Unlike other options that only replace the portion of the dentures that make contact with your gums, rebasing dentures replaces the entire material at the base of your dentures.

What kinds of rebases are available?

Determining which material to use requires a skilled approach, which is why it’s so important to work with a denturist with advanced training like Herman Castaneda.

What are the advantages of rebasing dentures?
