SOFT LINERS

For your comfort, soft liners are used to increase chewing comfort in new or existing dentures.

 

Soft liners are bonded to the surface of dentures and rest on the oral tissues. The soft liner acts as a shock absorber between the hard plastic denture base and the sensitive oral tissue covering the jaw ridges.

 

If you are suffering with denture sore spots, speak to your First Impression Denturist about how a soft liner may help you.

ADVANTAGES OF SOFT LINERS

 

  • Greater comfort; many denture wearers report that they can chew food more comfortably
  • Patients experience a reduced number of sore spots
  • A proven technology, soft liners have been available for over 40 years, and during that time the materials and technology have steadily improved

 

THINGS TO THINK ABOUT WITH SOFT LINERS

 

  • Special consideration in the use of proper cleansers and proper home care must be given to soft liners
  • Like a denture, soft lined dentures require regular follow up visits with your Denturist to examine the fit of the dentures, the health of the oral tissues, and to professionally clean dentures, if recommended

Ask your First Impression Denturist how you could benefit from a soft liner.
