QuickLine™: The Solution for Your Soft Relining Denture Needs

While every dentist aims to deliver a perfect fit, dentures will occasionally require some fine-tuning or fixes to minimize patient discomfort. Even your favorite patient—the one who maintains a perfect oral health routine daily—will notice the shape of their mouth changing over time. It’s simply inevitable.

Denture relining is usually preferable to replacement when possible and can solve a variety of patient issues; from sores, irritation, and general discomfort, to problems chewing and denture-related speech difficulties. It’s also a less expensive investment for your patient than an entirely new set of dentures.

Based on your patient’s specific needs, you can opt for one of two relining techniques:

Hard Relining - This approach uses conventional processed acrylic resin that adapts to the original denture to reline the prosthetic. The end result usually lasts longer than soft relining, but may be less comfortable than its silicone counterpart. The other potential drawback to this procedure is the time investment: while it’s possible to complete a hard relining procedure in a single patient visit, it often requires sending a new impression to the dental laboratory for the processing.

Soft Relining - This approach uses a silicone material to reline the denture, providing a softer, more comfortable base for the prosthetic. It’s often the better option for patients suffering from thin, sensitive gums or gum recession. In general, however, the silicone material tends to be less durable than the acrylic resin, requiring more patient visits for additional relining. On the other hand, the procedure can almost always be completed in a single patient chairside visit.

Introducing QuickLine™: A Long-Term Soft Relining Material

Relining Dentures
Relining dentures? Choose the QuickLine™ soft solution from Sterngold Dental.

If you want to combine the long lasting benefits of a hard resin with the comfort of a silicone material, then QuickLine™ from Sterngold Dental is your best bet. This addition reaction vinyl silicone is suitable for any and all PMMA acrylic based prosthetics, and it has many advantages over your standard soft relining material, including:

  • More Resiliency & Increased Tear Strength: Unlike many soft relining materials, QuickLine™ provides long-term viscoelastic durability and is more resistant to tearing, with a life expectancy of 1 to 2 years.
  • Easy Finish: It also finishes well when grinding.
  • No Taste or Odor: Enhance patient experience using this tasteless, odorless material during chairside procedures.
  • Affordability: QuickLine™ is reasonably priced, costing much less than many competitors.

How to Use QuickLine™ for Relining Dentures and Much More

There are actually multiple applications for this unique, self-curing, soft relining material:

  • Permanent soft relining for complete and partial dentures
  • Removal of pressure areas in the lower or upper jaw
  • Support for healing processes in implantology (cushioning of implants and overdentures)
  • Better adaptation and adhesion to the post-palatal area and flabby ridges
  • Improved comfort in undercut areas at the alveolar ridges
  • Elastic functional ridge on upper jaw dentures for improved adhesion
  • May also be used as a soft tissue reproduction material on models

Additional benefits? QuickLine™ from Sterngold Dental can be used for both the direct and indirect method, and the auto-mix cartridge delivery system ensures a fast, easy and mess-free application. The self-curing silicones allow for easy working, either using a direct or indirect lining procedure. Finally, QuickLine™ is biocompatible (no methyl methacrylate), color stable, and has a 3-year shelf life.

QuickLine™ Chairside Application Steps

The QuickLine™ Introductory Kit from Sterngold Dental

1. Prepare the denture by removing any old soft reline material and allow two millimeters for your new material. Grind a small trough, just medial to the periphery, for added retention.

2. Apply QuickLine™ primer to the entire area, especially under the lateral area of the periphery, to prevent delamination of the border-molded QuickLine™ material. Allow to dry.

3. Express the QuickLine™ material, covering the entire surface of the denture onto the denture border.

4. The total working time is 90 seconds, so with the patient sitting upright, insert the filled denture no later than one minute after expressing the QuickLine™ material into the denture.

5. Guide the patient into CO and through the border movements within the working time. Allow the patient to continue gentle functional movements for five minutes and remove after seven minutes. Allow to set an additional 10 minutes outside the mouth prior to adjusting and finishing.

6. Remove any excess material and finish with a silicone burr. Now you can finalize and seal the reline by using the QuickLine™ varnish.

Common Questions About QuickLine™

1. Approximately how times can one cartridge be used for relining dentures?
Placing a generous amount of material in the denture (approximately 6.5g), you could do about 8 mandibular relines with QuickLine. An upper arch prosthesis would require more material and yield at least about 6 applications.

2. How long will the material last?
The product has been designed as a permanently soft relining material. This does not mean that it is a permanent material, but will remain soft during its lifetime. Relines using this type of material have a life expectancy of 1 to 2 years. Normal procedure would be to reline again in shorter intervals of time.

3. Is the purpose of the Varnish to prevent staining of the QuickLine?
The varnish does not influence the staining of the material but rather help to protect against bactericidal growth on rough surface areas.

4. How easily can the material be removed from the denture? What is the procedure? Removal is done by roughly cutting away with a sharp instrument like a scalpel and further removing with the trimming tool supplied.

5. Any other helpful hints or information?
When preparing the denture, cut mechanical retention into the peripheral borders of the denture. You may cut keyways, or a small trench along the periphery. This will aid the soft liner’s adhesion to the denture base along the borders where the liner will flex. It is important to apply the primer with special care at the edges and to avoid sharp angles (because it makes application of the primer difficult—a question of surface tension) and the patient may feel these edges through the soft relining material. Apply the varnish to completely dry and clean surfaces only.
