Dentures worn for long periods of time with minimal rest to the denture-bearing tissues, lead to irritation of the soft tissues, depriving them of blood supply and also leading to resorption of the supporting bony foundation. Soft tissues beneath the dentures suffer deformation. As a consequence, the dentures tend to loosen.
Hard Denture Reliner is a specially designed material specifically targeted to result in a more permanent reline fix that lasts more years than does a soft reline. Thus hard denture reliner process of applying is involved firstly in removing an oxygen-inhibited layer of plastic from the denture's interior surface and then filling the denture with a putty-like material that conforms to the contours of the patient's mouth creating an accurate impression.
The denture is then processed in a laboratory where it is adjusted to the new shape of the patient's gum tissue. This results in maximum contact between the denture and the patient's mouth. The simple basis of preference of using a hard reliner rather than a soft reliner lays in a more permanent reline fix that lasts more years than does a soft reline. All Full Dentures should have a reline every two years. The standard package is enough for 20 full dentures.
