Soft Liners

If you have sensitive or receded gum tissue that may make wearing dentures uncomfortable, Dr. Erfan Imeni can provide you with a soft liner to protect your smile and enhance the comfort of wearing dentures. Soft liners are layers of pliable material placed between the surface of the denture and the gum tissue to reduce friction, prevent sore sports, and increase personal comfort. Our dentist may recommend a soft liner if your gums are:

  • Receded
  • Flattened
  • Sensitive
  • Chronically sore
  • Bony in many areas

If your gums have one or more of the above conditions, they may not respond well to dentures without a soft liner. Most patients benefit from a soft liner and find that it makes their dentures more comfortable and allows them to chew with ease. Soft liners can be included in new dentures or fitted into your existing denture. To maintain proper fit and comfort of the soft liner, it is important that you visit the dentist regularly for an evaluation of the fit and your general health. Contact Smile Design – Family & Cosmetic Dentistry today at 919-220-5505 if you are considering receiving a soft liner in Durham, North Carolina, and would like to know if this service is right for you. Dr. Erfan Imeni and our team look forward to helping you achieve a stronger and more comfortable smile!
