A soft liner is a soft layer of a pliable material that’s placed between your denture and oral tissues. A soft liner will absorb shocks between the hard base of your denture and your gums. Soft liners may be used when developing new dentures or reassembled into existing dentures.
For patients with receded and flattened gums that have not responded well to dentures, permanent soft liners may provide some comfort. For patients with chronically sore gum tissues or gums with sharp and bony areas, these types of liners may also provide a suitable solution.
