Denture Relines, Rebasing & Repairs
Medford Oregon Family Dentist

You will likely need to make several adjustments to your dentures as your mouth adjusts to the appliance. Occasional maintenance will also need to be performed to keep the appliance in the best condition possible. Some of the denture maintenance we may perform includes denture relines, denture rebasing and denture repairs.
Your gum tissues will change over time, causing your denture to become loose. To ensure that your dentures remain secure in your mouth and function properly, you should have them professionally relined every one to two years.
There are several types of denture relines which our dentist may perform:
- Hard denture reline – All dentures should be hard relined every two years. This involves removing and replacing a layer of plastic from the interior surface so that it matches the new shape of your gum tissue.
- Soft denture reline – Soft denture relines are recommended for patients who are unable to wear ordinary dentures due to tender gums or sore spots. Soft denture relines involve replacing the interior lining of your denture with a pliable material. A soft reline will need to be replaced every one to two years.
- Temporary reline – Temporary relines are used to help inflammation in your mouth subside so that your gums can return to a more normal state before we replace the denture or provide a soft or hard reline.
Denture rebasing is recommended when the base material is worn out, even if the teeth of the appliance are still in good condition. Our dentist will replace the entire base of your denture without replacing the teeth. Denture rebasing may be recommended when your denture is broken, damaged or weakened, or when you are replacing an immediate denture.
If your denture is damaged, schedule an appointment with our dentist immediately so that we can repair your appliance. We never want you to go without teeth for any length of time and strongly encourage you to contact our office as soon as possible.

Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies are scary and inconvenient. Dr. Rice is trained in extractions, root canal treatments, and other emergency dental techniques.
Super staff and Dr. Rice did an amazing job! I've been slowly losing teeth for years now and feel like a new person with my new partials. Thank you so much!

I highly recommend Joshua Rice. I had a dental emergency. I cracked a molar while eating dinner. The next morning I looked for a dentist. They were able to fit me in within a couple of hours. Everyone in the office is really nice. Dr Joshua Rice was great. He took care of my emergency, quickly and he was gentle.

I hadn't been to the dentist in a while and was nervous to go. Dr. Rice and his staff was calming, kind and attentive. They didn't gouge me for a dental plan, and I was very happy with the service I received. They gave me a dental plan I understood, were informative, and I'm happy I found my dentist! Very satisfied!

Best Dental office ever. The people are so nice. I actually look forward to my routine cleanings just to see the staff. I have been a client for several years and have never been treated bad.

Friendly, quick, and (never thought I would say this about going to the dentist), but very enjoyable! It was a pleasant surprise watching the NFL network while getting my teeth cleaned. Dr. Rice has a great bedside manner.
