Soft Liners

Soft liners increase denture comfort for Salt Lake City, UT area patients

Dentures are a terrific way for many patients to replace missing teeth. However, sometimes patients’ issues with their gums or soft tissues after tooth loss can make dentures uncomfortable or painful due to the stress they place on the gums. At Cannon Dental, Dr. David Cannon offers Salt Lake City, UT area patients a solution to this issue – soft denture liners – so they can enjoy the benefits of a denture without pain or discomfort.

Soft Liners, Salt Lake City UT

What are soft denture liners?

While dentures are a great option for many patients who have suffered tooth loss, many patients may experience the following issues due to natural changes in the mouth or the way their mouth has naturally developed:

  • Gum recession
  • Flattened gum tissues
  • Gums with sharp contours or bony edges
  • Sensitive or chronically sore gums

A permanent soft liner for dentures helps patients benefit from the functionality and affordability of dentures to restore their smile, while making them more comfortable and causing less irritation. A soft liner is custom-fitted to be placed between the surface of the hard denture and your gums, and is made from a soft and pliable material that is designed to absorb the shock and pressure placed on your gums while you are eating or biting down.

Benefits of soft liners

Soft denture liners have many benefits for patients with dentures:

  • Comfort: the primary reason patients get soft liners is for their comfort; even better, almost all patients respond well to this method of enhancing the comfort of their denture
  • Versatility: soft liners are custom designed for your unique denture and can be placed either when your new denture is being made or later if you are experiencing discomfort with your existing dentures
  • Better eating: with soft liners in place, many patients find it is easier to chew their food
  • Proven technology: soft liners have been in use for over 20 years and are a well-established dental technology
