Easy Denture’s stretchable and very adaptable NuvoFlex™ material allows for the use of only two sizes to fit most people. The S/M (smaller size) is generally the right fit for females and for males with smaller facial features. The M/L (larger size) is typically a good fit for males and for females with larger facial structures. The difference in the two sizes is approximately 15%, in both the amount of gum material and tooth size.
During the self-fitting process, Easy Denture’s patent-pending design allows for simple adjustment to the occlusion, which is how wide or narrow the denture sits within your mouth. Furthermore, when heated, the denture’s Nuvoflex thermoplastic material can easily be displaced or added back to the denture for adjustment to the vertical dimension, which is how high or low the denture sits within your mouth. This proprietary design is what allows for just two sizes to fit the majority of those requiring dentures.
Easy Denture is an excellent product that can be self-fit from the comfort of home in just minutes. However, this does not mean that it is the right product for you. If you have had issues with other dentures due lack of ridge, dry mouth, extensive torus (i.e. a boney protrusions in the mouth) or other oral anomalies, most likely Easy Denture will yield a similar unsuccessful outcome. For example, custom dentures that cost $2,000+ and are fit by a dentist don’t always work for the patient. Even with a custom made denture provided by a dentist, success rates typically range from 70-85%, meaning that (3) out of (10) edentulous people (i.e. lacking teeth) will not be a candidate for dentures. If you are unsure if you are a good candidate for Easy Denture due to your mouth’s anatomy, you may want to visit your local dentist and get their input.
As with a traditional denture, Easy Denture is a soft tissue supported prosthetic. If you have significant bone loss, it does make it more difficult to wear a denture. You should expect similar results as you would with a traditional denture. However, due to the adaptability of the proprietary Nuvoflex material, there is a possibility of greater success with Easy Denture. Please allow for additional time during the self-fitting process.
No, unfortunately, Easy Denture is will not work for you if you still have teeth.
Currently, all sizes come with shade B1 teeth, the most natural tooth shade.
Absolutely! Easy Denture includes all teeth up to, and including the 1st molar, which is the tooth most important for mastication (i.e. chewing). Therefore, you can eat most any food as you would with a traditional denture; you can also drink warm coffee or other beverages.
No problem – Easy Denture is designed to be refitted or remolded up to 20x times! Most customers reboil and remold 2-3 times to get a comfortable fit. Be sure to watch our tips and tricks video.
Dentures are a soft-tissue supported prosthetic and are not natural teeth. As with any prosthetic, it takes time to get accustom to wearing. This means that initially the denture may not feel natural and most times can feel uncomfortable for a period of time (i.e. similar to getting used to wearing a retainer, mouth guard, etc.). Speech can also be difficult at first as can eating. With a little patience, wearing a prosthetic (denture) can become natural as you get used to wearing them.
Absolutely. Easy Denture is an immediate denture that can be utilized following an extraction. Furthermore, after any swelling has subsided, or should your mouth change shape over the following few weeks, Easy Denture can simply be reboiled, resized and refit. This process can be done up to 20x different times over extended periods.
The denture is a multi-layered design made from the patented Nuvoflex material. The teeth are acrylic and gum base layer provides a rigid skeleton similar to standard dentures. The upper layer of the denture consists of the Nuvoflex Stretch material, which is similar to soft reline and comprises the soft, moldable part of the denture.
Due to the desired requirement of having to adapt to most any size mouth, Easy Denture only includes the first molar whereas custom dentures can be provided with a second and third molar. You can still eat very comfortably and efficiently with Easy Denture. Additionally, Easy Denture teeth are acrylic however they are not final machine polished, of which some custom dentures are. This is due to Easy Denture requiring a three layer process during manufacturing. When saliva is on the teeth, they shine very nicely. There is also polishing paper that comes with each denture kit. Below are pictures so that you can see the slight differences when self-fit in the mouth.
Instructions are included within each box. We recommend first watching the full Self-fitting Instructional video with tips and tricks in the second half. In short, you’ll:
• Boil Easy Denture for 60 seconds.
• Remove it from the boiling water (with tongs).
• Let it cool for 60 seconds, until it is cool to the touch.
• Then, place the Easy Denture in your mouth and apply pressure so the pliable Nuvoflex material can gently form around your gums (Note – You will have 4 minutes of working time immediately following the denture being removed from boiling water. Remember to let it cool for 60 seconds prior to placing the denture in your mouth, which will leave you with 3 minutes of time to self-fit the denture with the denture in your mouth – do not leave the denture in your mouth for longer than 3 minutes at this stage of the fitting process as you do not want the denture to fully harden/cure while it is in your mouth).
• Once removed from your mouth, let the product cool to room temperature which will allow the denture to fully cool/harden – it’s now ready to be used.
For a comfortable fit, be prepared that you may need to reboil and remold a few times. While most customers achieve a great fit within 2-3 attempts, keep in mind you can reboil up to 20 times!
Make sure you have followed all of the fitting instructions properly. Make sure you’ve properly adapted the denture to your ridge line. **For the upper denture, most importantly, make sure you have followed Step #7 and #8 in the instructions.**
Also, please know that should you not have enough ridge on your gumline to get adequate retention, a denture may not work for you. Sometimes loss of ridge can happen after a good bit of time without having teeth or wearing a denture. Another reason you may not be getting the proper retention is due to torus (i.e. boney protrusions in the mouth) or dry mouth (i.e. a common side effect of medications). If either of these are the case, you may be better suited for dental implants versus wearing a denture.
During the boiling and self-fitting process, the teeth can become slightly textured, rough, or slightly chalky. This will go away in a short period of time as natural abrasion while eating will occur and naturally polish the teeth. You can also expedite this process by utilizing the polishing block that is included in your denture kit to gently rub the teeth (i.e. to smooth) instead of waiting for them to naturally polish (note, do not over-polish).
Each Easy Denture comes with polishing block in the box that you can use if you’d like to polish the teeth. The denture will also self-polish within a short period of time while in the mouth. However, if you have access to the right equipment and would prefer, you can use an acrylic bur to polish.
Due to the thermoplastic properties of Easy Denture, the typical acrylic burs and pumice wheels cause too much heat due to friction and therefore make it very difficult to trim/polish. You will have much better success with a finishing bur used for Valplast dentures, we suggest a set from Brasseler. You can begin by using a cutter/carbide acrylic bur (i.e. H79GSQ.11.070 HP GSQ Cutter Carbide) to shape and trim, then a 25125HP Medium ScotchBrite Brush to polish. Use light pressure to reduce the heat from the friction when polishing. Afterwards, it is recommended to quickly dip the Easy Denture back into boiling water for about (3) seconds and use your fingers to smooth off any edges that don’t feel perfectly polished.
Begin by conducting a brief re-boil, using tongs to hold the denture and dipping only the high spot area into boiling water for 5-10 seconds. Then remove the denture from the boiling water and briefly let cool until the denture is cool to the touch. From there push on the softened material with your fingers to reduce the high spot. If this is not adequate, let the denture come to room temperature and use the polishing block that is included within the Easy Denture packaging or even a manicure drill to polish down the high spot.
When self-fitting, as you are using your fingers to massage the denture material around your gums, try to not push the material towards the teeth. If this happens though, have a toothpick handy while the material is still soft. Should material drift in-between the teeth, use the toothpick to push the material back towards the upper (pink) layer of the denture.
A denture is a soft-tissue supported prosthetic and will take getting used to especially if you have never worn a denture in the past. Sometimes gagging can initially occur and one simple approach to mitigate this issue while adjusting to the use of a denture is sucking on sugar free Lifesaver™ mints. This said though, if gagging becomes a continual problem you can try a few things to adjust the denture. The first is that you can remove excess material in the back of the denture by pulling it off by hand or using scissors. Additionally, on the upper (maxillary) denture, you can also remove the upper palate. We do not recommend this unless gagging is a significant, ongoing issue. Also, please be aware that unlike the Nuvoflex material on the upper layers of the denture, you cannot add the palate back to the upper (maxillary) denture once it has been removed. You will also potentially lose some retention as well.
Dentures can occasionally become difficult to remove in certain situations such as too much adhesive being used, extremely good retention, etc. There are a few things that you can do. Step (1); rinse your mouth with fresh warm (not burning) water, which will help soften the adhesive. Step (2); loosen the suction seal by applying even pressure between the gums and denture. To do this, find the place where the denture meets the edge of the gums and apply gentle, even pressure with your fingers on both sides of the denture to pull it away from the gums. Step (3); if even pressure does not work, use your fingers to apply alternating pressure on one side at a time between the gums and denture. Step (4); rinse again with warm water. Step (5); once the denture is removed, removed any excess adhesive on your gums by brushing them gently with a soft toothbrush. Finally, if these steps do not work, you can purchase a denture removal tool online or in certain stores, you can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or seek your local dentist who can assist further.
Sleeping with a denture in your mouth is not recommended for a number of reasons. For one, wearing dentures can cause resorption, a process that results in a gradual decrease in bone volume and density. This process can be slowed by removing your denture at night (for at least 5-6 hours per day), giving your mouth time to heal and receive beneficial exposure to the antibacterial agents naturally present in saliva. It also provides you the chance to clean your gums and other denture-bearing tissue as well as clean your denture – good oral hygiene among denture-wearers is very important so that oral bacteria and fungi does not build up under the denture potentially causing gum irritation / inflammation, build-up of tongue and denture plaque, and possible serious infection. Another benefit to removing the denture while sleeping is to allow for better breathing and it will also eliminate a possible choking hazard from accidently swallowing the denture.
Note – If you feel you have an infection due to wearing your denture, it is imperative to visit your local dentist immediately.
Depending on care, an Easy Denture lasts 2-5 years.
Properly cleaning and caring for your denture is an important part of oral heath. A good oral hygiene routine consists of the following:
1.) Always remove and rinse your denture after eating to get rid of loose food partials.
2.) Do not sleep with your denture in your mouth.
3.) Brush your denture at least once per day with a soft or regular toothbrush using dish soap, liquid antibacterial soap, or denture cleaning tablets (avoid regular toothpaste since it is too abrasive). Continue cleaning your denture until all food and old adhesive is removed.
4.) Brush your gums and tongue every day with a soft toothbrush (different from the toothbrush you use for cleaning your denture). Gargle with warm salt water to help remove any residual adhesive. It is also recommended to use a clean washcloth to wipe along your gums and on the roof of your mouth. Finish with a final mouth rinse once again with warm water.
5.) Rinse your denture before putting it back in your mouth.
**Do not soak your denture in hot water as it could deform the denture.**
