In certain cases, a soft liner reduces discomfort caused by a prosthesis. Soft liners are a material applied to the inner surface of a complete lower prosthesis. Made of a more porous material, the liner has more adhesive properties than the acrylic prosthesis; however, it is more difficult to clean.
It is important to make an annual appointment with the professional who made your prosthesis. He or she will be able to advise you on how to keep your prosthesis clean and comfortable for a longer period.
