The difference between a soft liner and a tissue conditioner

By Dr. Vishaal Bhat on Sunday, 6 July, 2008 with 0 comments

Viscosity is the difference---you will see more flow, change and adaptation to the tissues in a less viscous material (a tissue conditioner)

-Coe-Comfort, viscogel and lynal have the highest viscosity and are recommended for use as soft-liners.

-Coe-soft and Softone are recommended for use as tissue conditioners because they flow easily and have a low viscosity.

Processed soft-liner materials have been velum rubber, vinyl-acrylic polymers and silicone elastomers. The polymers are more resilient by the addition of oily or alcohol-type plasticizers.
