Abstract

Summary The results of the survey confirmed the clinical observation that soft liners were the best course of treatment in specifically selected patients. Most patients were satisfied with the appearance of the denture, and the length of time the patient could wear the soft-lined prosthesis increased considerably. The silicone liner also reduced irritation and increased the ability to chew food, with the patient's ability to taste food remaining essentially unaffected. The maintenance of cleanliness of the silicone, which had been a problem in the past, seemed to be markedly reduced. Above all, the enthusiastic patient acceptance of the product indicates that adhesive type A may be an excellent alternative to hard acrylic resin denture liners when a change of material is necessary.
