AvueSoftliner are materials forming a cushioned layer between the hard denture base and the oral mucosa. The liners help in distributing more evenly the forces of mastication to the underlying tissues by absorbing some of the masticatory forces
The soft liners have the potential of improving comfort to denture patients with ridge atrophy, thin and non resilient mucosa, bony undercuts and bruxomania. They are also recommended in cases of irregular bone resorption, immediate prosthesis, healing after implant placement, and for patients with bruxism and xerostomia.
One major indication for soft liners is to reduce problems arising from the effects of age changes in the denture bearing tissues. The use of a soft liner can improve both masticatory effciency and oral comfort for patients presenting a reduced thickness of the oral mucoperiosteum.
The effect of roughening the bonding surface by air particle abrasion had higher bond strength compared with the smooth surface because of its irregularity which provides mechanical retention. Pretreatment of denture base resin with monomer and acetone had shown to be effective in increasing the strength of repaired denture segment.AvueSoftliner bond strength is 2.2 Mpa which is way better then other competitive brands
The silicone elastomers, consisting of dimethylsiloxane polymers, with a chemical composition similar to that of the silicone impression materials, are not dependent on leachable plasticisers and, therefore retain their elastic properties for prolonged periods.
A-SOFT PRIMER - A bonding agent between AVUE SOFTLINER and the denture.
