Advancements in Polymeric Denture Lining Materials

Ghazal Khan, Khumara Roghani, Nawshad Muhammad, Saad Liaqat, Muhammad Adnan Khan

Denture liners are elastomeric materials that are applied on the fitting surface of a partial or complete removable denture. They are mainly used to improve the fit of dentures and provide a cushioning effect, to relieve pain and discomfort of the patient. Denture liners are broadly categorized into three main groups (1) Soft liners (2) Tissue Conditioners and (3) Hardliners and can be either heat cured, light cured, or self-cured. Although these materials have advantageous properties each one of these has its disadvantages as well. Therefore, the selection of material for a specific condition is of great importance and depends on the properties of the selected material. In this chapter, we will discuss the different types of denture liners, their clinical application, properties, limitations, and recent advances in these denture liners.
