Soft Liners Make Wearing Dentures More Comfortable

A permanent soft liner is a layer of soft material that is placed on the inner surface of a denture which rests on the gum. In short, a soft liner acts as a cushion between the hard plastic base of a denture and the gums. Soft liners can be used in the fabrication of new dentures or placed in existing dentures.

Permanent soft liners provide comfort for individuals with:

Severely receded or flat gums that become irritated with the stress of dentures

Chronic soreness

Gums with sharp bony areas

Advantages of Soft Liners
