Bhargabee Das [2] | Dr. Purnendu Bhushan | Dipsikha Acharya | Sreosee Das [2] | Asish Kumar Swain [2]


Abstract: There are different applications of soft liners in prosthetic dentistry due to viscoelastic properties. They have various uses in special clinical purposes, including distinct bone undercutting and bone resorption, where traditional prostheses are too hard to bear for edentulous and elderly patients. Their use also reduced trauma and improved retention by avoiding any kind of direct contact to solid dentures and exposed tissues. Though there is no specific soft material, the choice of technique and type should consider patients? clinical status. One should never consider soft liner to fix errors in prosthetic design. Soft bases are restricted usually due to ageing. The adhesion to hard base would be less and ageing also leads to fungal colonization and colorability. It is recommended to use various disinfection techniques and products properly and maintain good oral hygiene to retain the mechanical and physical properties of soft liners for the long time and avoid constant renewal of them. Despite the fact that soft bases are relatively less common, they are known to have merely therapeutic results in different cases of highly advanced ?bone resorptions? among elderly people. It is important to keep the patient aware about the benefits of good oral hygiene and control visits to ensure best results and to deal with the problems due to wear and tear of the material.
