Soreness of the lower during denture construction procedures

This can be a problem during each visit, particularly in patients who are elderly with friable denture bearing tissues. Making the definitive impressions and doing the registration with the central bearing apparatus can be sore on the lower denture-bearing tissues. Soreness at these visits can be an indication to use a soft lining such as Molloplast B/Permaliner on the base of the definitive denture.

In these circumstances, I explain to the patient that these appointments may be uncomfortable and I encourage them to push through this, emphasising that these stages do not reflect how the final denture will fit or feel.
