Hi, I have 5 months to go until I get the hardliner in my dentures. I have talked to my dentist about the procedure. Will it really make my dentures fit better? Anyone have input on this? Thanks

I can't speak for lower denture because I only have upper denture. But, yes, a hard reline will improve upper denture fit. A new impression is taken of the current state of your gums (after shrinkage following extractions and/or healing) and new acrylic is put on the denture to conform to that state, resulting in a better fit.
Five months is a long time to suffer with dentures that don't fit. Please consider asking your dentist for a soft reline (which can be done in the dental chair unlike the hard reline which is done in a dental lab) in the interim. It will be make a world of difference!
