What are temporary liners

  • Also Known as Tissue Conditioners
  • As the supporting bone heals it starts to shrink away from the dentures, this creates space.
  • The space between dentures and your gums can cause:
    • Looseness
    • Discomfort and/or sore spots
    • Instability and/or gagging
    • difficulty in chewing or getting used to dentures
    • possibility of cracking dentures
  • The temporary liner is putty like material that we put in the denture to fill the space which then hardens to the shape of your gums in the denture.

Why get temporary Liners

  • Liners refit the dentures, temporarily restoring:
    • Fit
    • comfort
    • stability
    • Function
  • Getting Temp. Liners can assist you in a smoother healing process and the ability to get used to wearing dentures.

When to get Temporary Liners

  • 1st one will be placed usually 1 to 6 weeks after the time of extractions when surgical dentures were placed
  • After that is up to your discretion, if Dentures are:
    • Getting To Loose
    • Causing discomfort or sore spots
    • Not stable
    • If Liners is breaking down
  • When you are using more denture adhesives than the recommended amount
  • Temporary Liners are only good in the denture for a maximum of 4 months

**When healing has stabilized, usually taking up to one year, the temp. liners are ground out and a Permanent reline is put in.**
