Permanent Soft Liners
Do you have sore gums? Permanent Soft liners provide comfort and relief for individuals with severely receded or flat gums. If you have chronic soreness, gums with prominent or sharp bony areas soft liners act like a cushion which may give the denture wearer some relief and may allow for a more comfortable fitting denture. Used mainly for lower dentures, the soft base is a liner that is built into your denture prosthesis. Your denture with soft liner should be checked annually to ensure continued comfort and replace when needed. The soft base has a porous texture which makes it a material which is not so easy to clean and also means that you should have your dentures checked by a denturist regularly to ensure that your softliner is maintained in good condition. It is very important that you follow the instructions provided by our denturist and that any dentures with softliner material are not soaked for long duration’s of time; instead they should be cleaned but then allowed to remain dry overnight. Depending on how you care for your softliner will have a direct impact on how long the material will last on your denture. Our denturist can recommend cleaning agents which will be effective in cleaning your softliner.
