A soft denture liner works to enhance your comfort and improve the fit of your denture so that you can smile, speak and eat confidently as well as without discomfort. Soft denture liners are typically recommended for those with sensitive mouths or whose gum tissue has receded or flattened. A soft liner is a layer of soft, pliable material that is fitted between the surface of the denture and the oral tissues to absorb the shock and irritation between the gums and the harder base of your appliance. Soft liners are also used when creating new dentures or retrofitting existing dentures.

Benefits of soft denture liners include:

If you receive a soft denture liner, you will need to meet with our prosthodontist regularly to ensure that your denture fits properly and that you remain in good health. Soft denture liners usually remain in good condition for one to two years, and you will periodically need to have the denture relined to keep it functioning properly and fitting correctly. You may also want to consider a more permanent solution, such as implant-supported dentures.
