Although soft liners are not ideal for every patient, they can be greatly beneficial for others. Patients who experience chronically sore gums, have next to no lower ridge (bone) remaining, or have thin tissue over bony areas, may find comfort in a soft liner. Ask your denturist today, if this would be a good fit for you!

Care for Soft Liners
Soft liners require home care and proper cleaners to maintain their vitality. As with all removable dentures, soft liners require a regular check up to ensure fit and oral health.Based on patient home care cleaning, soft liners have an average lifespan of two to four years depending on your physiology.
Even though soft liners can be of great advantage, it is important for oral hygiene to follow proper cleaning instructions that are provided by the denturist. Due to their more porous nature, soft liners can form a plaque build up quicker than the conventional acrylic only denture. With the use of professional strength cleaners and regimen, proper hygiene can be easily achieved.
