After an absence of more than a decade, Novus™ Soft Denture Liner has returned. From my first encounter with Novus™ in 1988 to recent re-encounters, overall health of the denture bearing mucosa remains my most notable clinical observation. The unique inorganic polymer chemistry of Novus™ Soft Denture Liner does not support biofilm. The energy dispersing properties of Novus'™ unique chemistry are best described as dampened elasticity, meaning unlike silicone, Novus™ has no bounce back. I believe that for these reasons soft tissue health is superior with Novus™ dentures requiring, on average, less than half the number of post insertion adjustments compared to laboratory processed silicone.
