I have found NOVUS® to solve even some of my most difficult patient problems in denture function, retention and comfort. I have to say I like everything about NOVUS®! Patients tolerate their appliances better and function better even in challenging situations such as knife edged ridges.
All of this and the relines last trouble-free for years!
Dr. S. Gerald Marx
50 years of being around the sights and sounds of the family dental laboratory business, I’ve understood much about dentures and how they work and don’t work. Lower dentures specifically can be truly problematic for most denture wearers and prove to be equally challenging for the clinician as well.
Finally a material arrives on the scene called NOVUS®. Made of polyphosphazene, it possesses a unique energy damping quality during chewing; driving the lower denture towards the tissue while maintaining a softness without an annoying squishy feeling. At the same time, NOVUS® engages bony undercuts such as evident in the pre, mid and retro Mylohyoid areas also softening contact on either mental nerve. Through a number of patient testimonials, it has been determined that using NOVUS® Resilient Liner in a new denture or in a reline process, changes the lower denture wearing experience for the patient for the better in most, if not all cases. NOVUS® is truly revolutionary!

Literally, NOVUS® came a long way from the U.S. via Australia to the United Kingdom
Dr. Finlay Sutton and his NOVUS® patients experiences. He found the NOVUS material to be successful. One particular patient experience proved NOVUS to give comfort and functional fit.
Patient NOVUS Case Study
BEFORE NOVUS: My patient had been losing weight and had a very restricted diet owing to lingual soreness under the lower complete denture.
AFTER NOVUS: In the week since fitting the NOVUS lined lower denture she told me she had put on 7 pounds and could now eat all types of food. In addition, she didn’t need any adjustment today. It is a remarkable material…she absolutely loves her dentures. We are very very impressed with the product, our patients have been extremely happy with it. In my opinion it is a great improvement over other soft lining materials currently on the market.
AROUND THE WORLD: NOVUS was recommended to Dr. Sutton by another prosthodontist, Dr. John Besford in the U.K. Dr. Besford is a world renowned expert in removable prosthodontics and he first heard of NOVUS in the late 1980’s (the first distribution of NOVUS by Hygenic Corp.). In 2012, Dr. Besford discovered NOVUS again during his lecture tour in Australia sponsored by Ultimate Dental. It was Ultimate Dental who informed Dr. Besford of NOVUS and gave him a package to sample in the U.K.
Dr. Sutton is a registered Specialist in Restorative Dentistry, Prosthodontics, Periodontics and Endodontics in the United Kingdom. He practices at Finlay Sutton Partnership, Weind House in Garstang, Lancashire, U.K.

Your NOVUS seems to work as advertised, as I have processed my first ever NOVUS permanent soft liner case. The NOVUS material did not disappoint and to our surprise provided an excellent result. The patient had a history of denture problems, so it was decided that we would attempt to place the NOVUS on the upper as well as the lower denture. Upon insertion there were no obvious sore spots or pressure points evident, which was not the norm for this patient. After further contact with this patient she continues to have a level of comfort never before achieved with any other soft liner we have used in the past. It is highly recommended that this be processed using a muscle molded final impression to achieve proper border extensions. The material seems to exhibit excellent properties, bonds well, easy to trim and polish, packs quickly, and can be short cured. There is a short learning curve with this product but the results are well worth it.
