“Very professional in her work. She is very compassionate! Have used her dentures for a while.”
Stress no more about uncomfortable dentures. Located at the easy-to-reach Co-Op® mall on 13th Avenue, our dental centre, Medicine Hat Denture Clinic Inc., offers high-quality denture relines for residents of Medicine Hat and the surrounding areas.
While it is ideal to replace dentures every 5-10 years, timely repairs and relining of your dentures ensure effective chewing and speaking. Based on years of expertise, we can assess and reline your dentures for the perfect fit.
Our clinic provides two types of relines:
Regular You can bring us your dentures in the morning. We will reline and return them on the same day.
Softliner We take an impression with your denture, grind it out and then process a new softliner in your current denture.
Here are some answers to commonly asked questions about softliners. Though they are not a panacea and cannot solve comfort problems for every patient, they are useful and make a difference in their own way.

Do I Need a Softliner?
The Softliner Process
We process our softliners in our own Medicine Hat Denture Clinic Inc. lab. An initial consultation helps us to assess if a softliner is indeed the right solution for you. Then, you would need two appointments with us to get your softliners - the first is often scheduled in the afternoon when we will take an impression of your dentures. The softliners are then delivered on the following afternoon, i.e. during the second appointment.
Gum resorption is a natural occurrence in which your gum shrinks, growing thinner. It can be painful and uncomfortable to the point that even frequent re-adjusting of your dentures does not help, and it may cause your dental prosthesis to become loose and hard to manage.
At Medicine Hat Denture Clinic Inc., we can help you solve this problem by recommending a denture with a soft base. The soft base is made of a porous material, and it lines the prosthesis. It provides stability to your denture without being an irritant for gum tissues. It is mainly used for lower dentures.
The soft base does not stop the resorption of your gums as their shape is constantly changing. To maintain gum hygiene and health, we recommend that the soft base is examined annually at least. We will also help you find the right products to clean the soft base.
