Abstract

Resilient liners when used intelligently are an excellent adjunct in removable prosthodontics. However, currently they have to be best considered as temporary expedients because none of the advocated permanent liners have life expectancy comparable to resin denture base. This article reviews the literature regarding their composition, functions, gelation characteristics, bond strength and influence on denture bases. It also presents their drawbacks and attempts made to extend their longevity. A Medline search was completed for the period from 1986 to 2007, along with a manual search, to identify pertinent English peer-reviewed articles and textbooks.
