There has been a recent rise in DIY denture fixes, and the denture reline kit is just one of these fixes.
When your false teeth no longer fit so well, you have a few choices. You could get new dentures, get your dentist to adjust them, or fix them yourself.
Denture relining kits can be purchased for less than ten dollars, so they are a cheap solution to slack teeth.
Many people who have resorted to using more and more denture fixative to keep their teeth in place, have found that a better option is to reline their teeth.
It’s a simple fact that false teeth don’t last forever. As we age or lose more teeth, the mouth changes, gums shrink, and our dentures become slacker. They require more and more help to stay in place. Unless you are lucky enough to have permanent dental implants you are likely to face this problem sooner or later.
Most of the kits allow several applications, and while they may not be suitable for every situation, for those on a tight budget a kit might be a cheap quick fix for slack teeth.
While some men and women will manage to go many years without any issues, many more will need to take steps to make their teeth fit better.
If you’ve had your teeth for many years, opting for replacements might give you the opportunity to go for a more up to date option, such as soft flexible dentures.
If you are a caregiver, part of your duties may be to take care of someone’s dentures. If you notice their teeth becoming slack then a relining kit may be the solution to the problem.
If you simply want to delay the expense of getting new replacements, you could consider professional relining or a denture reline kit.
