Soft liners are a material that is soft in nature and is able to be molded between your dentures and gum area. Soft liners protect your gums from the hard surface of your dentures. There are a number of different instances in which soft liners are used. One of the most common instances in which we use soft liner is when we are creating new dentures. Not everyone’s mouth responds well to dentures. Some patients have more sensitivity than others. Soft liners are ideal for individuals that have mouth or gum sensitivity.
Soft liners are certainly more comfortable. They also make it easier to chew. However, it is important to note that soft liners need to be replaced every two years or so. You may want to find out more about soft liner replacement on our website. It is important to schedule regular appointments to ensure your soft liner and dentures are functioning properly.
