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
Primer is the bonding agent necessary to allow the silicone to adhere to the hard acrylic denture surface. Without primer, the silicone cannot stick. IMPORTANT: Primer needs to be applied to the entire interior of the denture, but also ON the ridges and OVER the ridges (1/4 inch) to get the silicone to wrap around the entire denture. This is what creates the seal and the suction to keep your denture in place. Without proper coverage of primer, the silicone will not stay put, and will lift prematurely. Review Anatomy of a Denture.
a. Open your primer bottle and quickly dip your swab in and out of the bottle one time only. The longer the swab is immersed the more
primer will be absorbed and wasted.
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 (as indicated by blue area). 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.
c. Hold the orange base of the applicator securely in your non-dominant hand, then with your other hand, twist the clear winged tabs IN THE DIRECTION OF THE BLACK ARROW (clockwise) 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.)
Step 4: Apply Silicone to Your Denture
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 in your 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
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 can proceed. 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 for assistance.
b. Examine where the silicone ended on the wall. If the silicone did not reach the top of your wall to create “flashing” (excess overlap) that extends up and over the ridge, your voids are not yet completely filled. Proceed to the Snug-Up Application on page 11. (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.)
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.
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 in a glass of water or cleaner.
If your denture does not feel snug, don’t worry… you are NORMAL! Most wearers with medium looseness require 2 silicones for complete snugness. If they’re significantly loose, a third silicone application is likely needed.
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.
