If your dentures no longer fit as well as they once did, you may need to have a procedure done to refit the base of the denture, called a “reline". Check with your prosthodontist to see if your dentures can simply be relined since many ill-fitting dentures may have additional problems that can only be corrected by remaking the denture(s). It is best not to reline your dentures with over the counter reline kits. A reline procedure, if indicated, can be completed by your prosthodontist, and will enable your denture(s) to fit better and tighter than they have previously.
