Which Way Is Better?
There are two ways to get a custom-fitted soft reline to keep your dentures secure:
- Got to a dentist to have the soft reline done in their office
- Apply your soft reline at home using a high-quality kit like Densurefit
Getting a Soft Reline at the Dentist
When you go to the dentist to get a soft reline, you go to a professional who will apply a soft liner product to your dentures. Some dentists use silicone and others use a different type of soft reline material that doesn’t taste very good.
Always ask what materials the dentist is using and be sure they are using silicone — the high-quality dental reline material that has no bad taste or smell. If the product they are using smells like fingernail polish or has a foul taste, you know they are not using silicone.
In addition, be prepared to pay anywhere from $250 to $400 for a soft reline from your dentist. The reason is that they have to fit the reline to your palate and it takes their staff time to do so. In addition, the cost of dental-grade silicone is higher than the cost of the lower end materials that don’t taste very nice.
Do It Yourself Soft Relines
If you don’t want to pay that much for an appointment at the dentist, you can buy an at-home kit to create your own soft reline or soft liner. However, you need to be careful with the product that you choose.
The quality of soft reline products that you can find at local drugstores or chains like Walmart varies greatly. These lower quality products are made with the less expensive foul-smelling and foul-tasting material that degrades and usually doesn’t last more than a week or so. A low-quality soft liner will become crumbly with time and may also prevent the natural salivation process that your mouth needs for optimal dental health. Some users have also reported burning sensations in their mouth after they’ve used the non-silicone products.
The good news is that there’s a safe, easy-to-use at-home alternative! It’s called DenSureFit. DenSureFit is the newest soft reline kit on the market and is only available online from densurefit.com/store.
Created by a dentist, it’s made with the highest quality dental grade silicone that has no smell or taste, provides a custom fit for your dentures and will last for 3 months. In addition, the soft silicone shapes to your palate and provides a cushion against your hard acrylic denture so that there is no pain when you bite down. It also provides an air-tight seal between your gums and your denture so no food particles can get in when you eat. It fills the gaps where gums may have shrunk so that loose dentures will fit the shape of your mouth and stay in place with little or no need for denture adhesive.
Densurefit soft liners are silicone-based and do not contain zinc or other chemicals. DenSureFit has no side effects for the wearer. Unlike the low-quality soft reline kits you find at the drugstore, it will NOT taste like nail polish.
