After you are satisfied with your technique, do not remove the partial denture from the mouth. Take a full arch alginate impression over the partial while it is still in the mouth. Once the alginate has set, remove the impression, keeping the partial in the full-arch impression. The laboratory will use all of these records to reline the cast metal partial. When you seat the relined partial, you should notice improved fit and improved adaptation to the tissue.
A rebase to a cast metal partial denture works in the same way as a reline except that the entire saddles and all of the teeth are generally replaced during the lab procedure. Practically speaking, if it becomes necessary to replace all of the acrylic and teeth on a cast metal partial denture, a new partial denture should be considered.
