Rebasing: a lab process where entire denture base is replaced without changing occlusal relations.

Relining: procedure that re-surfaces the tissue side of a denture with new material.

4 indications to reline or rebase:

1. Immediate denture 3-6 months after original fabrication

2. When residual alveolar ridges have resorbed

3. When patient cannot afford new dentures

4. When making new dentures can cause a lot of stress to patient

7 contraindications to relining or rebasing:

1. When excessive resorption has occurred

2. Abused soft tissues

3. TMJ problems

4. Poor denture esthetics/unsatisfactory jaw relationships

5. Sever osseous undercuts

6. Badly worn or broken teeth
