Sometimes, wearing dentures can irritate gum tissue. To help prevent this, Dr. Alok Sharda provides our patients with soft liners in Creedmoor, North Carolina.
Soft denture liners are designed with a flexible material. This material is placed between the denture appliance and the gums, forming a barrier between the two. These reduce friction, prevent sores and make your dentures more comfortable for everyday wear. Our dentist may recommend a denture liner if your gums suffer from:
- Boniness, or lack of cushioning
Any of these conditions may prevent the denture appliance from fitting properly. Most patients who receive a soft liner respond well and can wear and use their dentures more easily. They can either be included in a new set of dentures or be added to your current appliance. To help make sure your liner fits properly, plan regular visits with Butner Creedmoor Family Dentistry. Our dentist can examine the fit of your dentures, as well as evaluate your overall health.
