I had a soft reline today. Yesterday my dentures flopping all over the place. Even adhesive didn't work. Today after the reline They feel great. I even put adhesive on and it lasted. I actually got through a meal without my dentures popping up. How long does the soft reline last?

That is so great Julie, however mine didn't work (my jaw isn't right) so I don't know...I've heard that if it works and you can eat and they don't move around..that mean...you're only going to get better!!! I'm commenting because of your last question. Others will answer you and can tell you better than me, but I have to say....you sound so happy!! Like your worried that this won't last....poor thing...it will. This site is great...I had no idea what I was going to come up against and here there are so many going through all sorts of different trials. Don't worry.....be happy!!!! Ps...if you can eat salad...I'm so jealous.....giggles...no happy for you!!!! Enjoy!!!!

I just noticed...You mentioned "2 weeks out". Did you just have your dentures for 2 weeks before the soft reline? Because, I was going to the dentist when I had a sore and they'd do something that didn't help. The girl that did the soft reline was on vacation...then they saI had to heal...she was busy. So I'm confused...is it different for everyone or did I get overlooked. They are a busy office but..it was couple of months...

Theresa I'm 1 week in and get stitches out in 2 days and they're going to do a soft re line then also. From what understand ANY time its hurting u or anything they r supposed to make adjustments and fix anything causing pain or sore spots. So I would for sure ask them about it. I haven't had hardly any probs just couple spots rubbing they will fix when I go in. But my dentist did tell me if ANYTHING makes me uncomfortable come in sooner so they can fix.

Yes I am a little over 2 weeks out. It will be 3 weeks on Thursday. My dentist said my gums had healed enough to do it. I am sure that everyone is different. I would ask your dentist.
I had chicken salad for dinner. Yummy!!! Of course I mused the chicken really finr

DANG!!! They would tell me if I had ANY trouble just come in..And I would....they are across the street. Now I did run a fever couple days after...but I just took the stupid things out then because I was hurting. The receptionest came back when I was getting my dentures adjusted...they'd grind down a spot where I had gotten a sore, and told the girl to stop telling people they could come in every day because it was getting crazy. Well, the girl had just told me moments before I could come in whenever.Whether the receptionist overheard our conversation or not,,I don't know. Me thinks so. But, since they weren't doing much...I'd wait a few days. Now these cost me 7000. In the beginning they were very accomindating, and I did like the dentist..and the staff. Oh, I just feel sick right now...I kept saying that something didn't seem right. I didn't even know what a soft relin was. They were going to charge 11,000 and dashed my hopes...previously I'd been told close to 20,000. But, I started crying right there on the phone and they said they'd call me back...then brought down to 7000. But, that meant no permanents. They would adjust my immediates and they could work. Then like I said family illness with 3 family members and then a death..now I go this week...I'll see what then can do and tell them...which I kinda have already, that they'd better get it right. Ugh...I'm NEVER a pushover. And I pay on these for another 5 years. Thank you....I didn't even think that they were doing that..so many patients there...happy patiients...UGH

I'm really happy for you as I'm going through the same problem with my bottom denture. I don't need anything for my top. Thank goodness it fits snug. But I'd suggest speaking with your dentist about putting goop on a SOFT RELINE. If you Google it, you'll see that it's not recommended

The reline will harden and shrink a little. Depending on the speed of your bone loss. 3 weeks to 3 months.  This is like a new reline that lasts around a week B4 you change it. It's a Gap filler. Worth giving a try.  You use to have to order from Japan. Now you can skip the hassles and order from Amazon.   You can use it on top of your Soft Reline.  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KQJSEKC

Wait..hold the phone...I can order something on Amazon for this? Hmmm....well I go this week...hadn't been due to family illness...my tops fit, but too big....I have no idea what so ever they can do with the bottom. The jaw is just not making it happen..and then last I heard it would be more money. So had to just let it go by wayside. I will like to look that up on Amazon....makes it comfy? I can wear uppers like I said but without the bottom certainly can't eat. And my mouth does get sore. Someone told me that sense I went so long without wearing the bottoms...when they fix it, I may have to get used to uppers again......hope not....stupid dentures.

Gotta love that new line. Mine seemed to chAnge a little more often in the beginning. I am now 3+ months out. I use adhesive still. Some days are looser than others. Definitely use adhesive when eating. I'm healing nicely and am looking forward to when things are normal and I get that hard reline and I won't heed adhesives. I'm almost there.

Yes I do. I have an ultrasonic cleaner I got on Amazon and I use efferent tablets for whitening. It hasn't seemed to bother my silly liner at all. I have heard to soak them not soak them. I want them fresh and white so I soaked them and couldn't tell a difference in the liner at all.

The soft relining from my dentist was until my gums ( about 3 months) . Once my gums become relatively stable and healed the soft redline became brittle and no longer cushioned . Then my dentist did a hard redline.. It was actually not too bad. the teeth seemed to stay better . It took a couple of days to get used to it, but it was much better.
