Re: Hard Reline or rebase

Hard reline and rebase are basically the same thing. On an immediate denture a soft reline is usually the route taken as tissue shrinkage is very individual. If someones gums where really inflamed pre-extraction then there would be more resorebtion, vs someone who's tissue was fairly healthy.

a hard reline basically replaces the layer of acrylic against the gums as a one day appointment, a rebase replaces a lot more of the acrylic material and can be an over night or more process.

Hope this helps.
