  • Soft liners are placed on denture base that contacts the tissues and are added to an old denture to allow underlying tissues to heal. If the tissues which are overlying jaw bone are thinner than the normal and don’t resist pressure well or in case of patients with low pain threshold, these soft liners are given. If the patient is uncomfortable with the liner, then you can replace the liner. Though trimming with bur is time consuming but it is the only option to replace the liner.
