Follow Instructions Exactly for a Successful Reline

DenSureFit is for use on ACRYLIC dentures. Not for use on alternative denture materials.
Applying over a soft professional reline?
If so, please follow “SNUG-UP Application” instructions.
Do you have a partial denture?
If so, these instructions are also for you. Pay close attention to the variation for seating a PARTIAL.
Before You Begin
Understanding how to handle each piece of your kit is CRITICAL to avoid wasting your product.
Be sure to read this entire guide before you start.
What You’ll Need
In addition to parts included in your kit, it will help to have the following items on hand:
- A clean, dry towel
- Dish soap
- Rubbing alcohol & cotton balls/pads
- A timer or stopwatch
Inside The Kit
Primer (½ bottle)
One thin, even coat of primer makes DenSureFit silicone stick to your denture. Your unopened primer bottle will look slightly less than ½-full (1 ml total). When used properly, it only takes half of the primer provided (.5 ml) to prime one denture plate. The remaining primer is intended for touch-ups after your first silicone application.
When you dip the swab into the primer, REMOVE IT QUICKLY! The primer is highly absorbent- DO NOT leave your swab in the primer or dip it more than once. If you do, it will soak up ALL the primer and you will NOT have any primer left for later. One quick dip is the perfect amount to primer one denture plate.
Replace the cap tightly and immediately after use. Store your DenSureFit primer tightly capped and upright in the refrigerator to prevent evaporation.
Inside The Kit
Primer Swabs (x2)
- Use each primer swab only once.
- Quickly dip the swab ONE TIME ONLY and REMOVE IMMEDIATELY from the primer!
The second swab is for a Snug-Up application.
Silicone Applicators (x2)
The silicone goes on after the primer coat.
It’s the magic that makes your denture snug like never before.
- BEFORE YOU TWIST to open the applicator, locate the black arrow on the tube. Hold orange barrel still and firmly in one hand. With other hand, TWIST clear tabs on the tip in the direction of the arrow until you hear/feel the “click”. If it does not click, or if you twist opposite the arrow, your silicone may squeeze out of the sides of the applicator tip and become unusable.
- DO NOT twist/open your silicone applicator until you are ready to apply it to your denture! Otherwise, it will dry out and you’ll waste your silicone.
- Use ALL the product in one applicator to reline one denture plate. The second applicator is for a SNUG-UP application. Most people require 2 applicators to get snug.
- Use only one applicator of silicone at one time (i.e., one for each application). After 4 minutes of curing time, assess your fit. If you’re not snug, you can add another applicator of silicone on top of the first layer only in the wall/trough areas of the denture.
Upper Reline Instructions.
Step 1: Clean, Rinse and Dry Your Denture
If you don’t clean and dry your denture completely prior to
application, DenSureFit will not stick!
For best results, wash your denture with dishwashing soap, dry with a clean towel, then allow it to air dry thoroughly. NOTE: Adhesives (especially waterproof types) can leave a residue on your denture. It’s important to clean off this “invisible” residue before starting your reline. Denture cleanser is NOT sufficient for this job of prepping your denture prior to relining.
PRO TIP: After washing/drying your denture, wipe the inside with rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball until it is squeaky clean.
Step 2: Apply Primer to the Denture
Review Anatomy of a Denture.
Now you’re ready. Grab one primer swab.
a. Open your primer bottle and quickly dip your swab in and out of the bottle one time only.
b. Close your primer bottle tightly.
c. Use the primer-covered swab to gently paint your denture with primer in a thin, even coat.
d. Starting with the inside top perimeter of your denture, cover every spot on the denture ridge, slightly over the ridge on the front, wall, palate, trough, and along the back edge. Missed spots may cause the silicone to lift.
e. Grab your timer; let the primer dry for two minutes.
Step 3: Activate Silicone Applicator
a. Remember: Do NOT activate the applicator OR press the plunger until you are ready to apply the silicone to your denture.
b. You have approx. 15 seconds to work with the silicone before it starts setting up.
Step 4: Apply Silicone to Your Denture
c. Twist the clear winged tabs IN THE DIRECTION OF THE BLACK ARROW until you hear/feel it snap into place.
(If silicone squishes out the sides, you have twisted the tabs the wrong way! Discard and use a new applicator.)
Apply three lines of silicone to the palate, and the remainder in the trough.
IMPORTANT! Work quickly to get the silicone onto your denture and into your mouth in about 15 seconds.
The lines do not have to be neat, pretty or perfect. Just get it onto your denture and into your mouth QUICKLY so the silicone does not start setting up outside of your mouth. You need it to spread inyour mouth in its most fluid state to get a proper impression for your best fit.
Step 5: Seat Your Denture
Have your timer ready; timing is critical!
a. Immediately insert your denture into your mouth with your thumb (index finger over your nose). Give your thumb a couple nice sucks to suction your denture into your suction spot.
b. Start your timer and hold your denture in your suction spot firmly with your thumb for 4 minutes.
(DO NOT remove your denture during the 4 minutes!)
For PARTIALS: Gently snap partial into mouth. DO NOT press or bite down! Look in the mirror to make sure natural teeth and partials are even and your partial is in the right spot. Gently touch upper and lower teeth together in a natural biting position until they make even contact, then STOP! Do not bite down any further. Relax your jaw; let the silicone cure for 4 minutes.
Step 6: Assess Fit
Remove your thumb. Keep your denture in your mouth and assess how it feels.
If your denture stays up and is snug and comfy, you are done! Don’t wear your newly-relined denture for 2 hours as it needs to finish curing outside of your mouth (air-dry).
If your denture does not feel snug, don’t worry… you are NORMAL! Most wearers with medium looseness require 2 silicones for complete snugness.
Remove your denture and examine the silicone inside of your denture to determine if you need a Snug-Up application.
a. Examine the silicone on your palate. You’ll need to ensure your foundation is good before moving on. Did the silicone make a true impression of the roof of your mouth? If so, you are fine to move on. But if you see humps where lines of silicone did not spread thinly and evenly on your palate, this is an issue. If this is your case, do NOT do a Snug-Up. You will need to remove the silicone and start fresh. Contact DenSureFit and let us know what happened.
b. Examine where the silicone ended on the wall. If the silicone did not reach the top of your wall, your voids are not yet completely filled. Proceed to the Snug-Up Application on page 9. (Ideally, you want even flashing of the silicone on the ridge of your denture. Flashing indicates that voids are filled and provides a nice seal. Even though flashing is desirable, it is not always necessary for a great fit.)
c. Examine the silicone on the back edge of the palate. If you have any bare spots on the back edge of the palate, you might not get your best seal. When you do your Snug-Up application, you can add a skinny line of silicone on the back edge to fill in any bare spots.
Remember…your ideal fit can only happen once all your voids are completely filled. These voids must be filled with the denture properly
seated in your suction spot. When this happens, an accurate impression of your mouth is created and the denture can then STAY SUPPORTED up in your suction spot.
PRO TIP: DenSureFit silicone is BUILD-ABLE! It will adhere to itself WITHOUT primer. As your denture loosens over time, you may apply more silicone to your previous layer using the Snug-Up application. You DO NOT need to remove and reapply your previous layer as long as it’s in good condition and not lifting.
Make sure your previous layer of silicone is perfectly clean and dry before adding a new layer, or it will not adhere properly.
