These award-winning five-minute dentures cost under $150 per arch, putting an immediate or temporary denture within easier reach of millions.
THE DENTURES ABOVE seem pretty ordinary, right? They’re not. You’re looking at a product called Easy Denture. It makes providing same-day dentures not only feasible for every practice, but also accessible for patients who can’t afford, or simply lack the mobility to get, traditional ones. That means potentially expanding your patient base (and profitability) while helping more people.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, some 40 million people are edentulous. Easy Denture, from a dentist-owned startup, presents a solution as simple as making spaghetti: Dip Easy Denture in boiling water for 60 seconds. Cool for the same amount of time. Align in the mouth and create a seal for 90 seconds. Place the denture in cold water to set for 30 seconds. That’s it.
“Easy Denture is not a replacement for a high-end cosmetic set. It’s a perfect solution for an immediate or economy denture,” says Dr. Misael Otero, who co-created Easy Denture alongside his wife and practice partner, Dr. Lindsey Otero (both members of the 2012 Incisal Edge 40 Under 40). “No patient should ever be without teeth. Easy Denture brings that one step closer.”
Easy Denture uses a unique material called Nuvoflex, which becomes pliable when heated to 212 degrees Fahrenheit yet quickly hardens once it returns to room temperature. Occlusion and vertical dimension can be perfected by adjusting the denture while hot. If you don’t get it right the first time, or need to adjust, simply reheat and try again up to 20 times. This makes it perfect for those healing from extractions or implants. Also, don’t worry about patients enjoying hot foods or liquids; it works just like a standard denture at anything other than boiling temperatures, and lasts in a patient’s mouth up to 12 months.
It’s little wonder Easy Denture won the 2020 Gold Edison of the Year Award for Top Dental Innovation due to its adaptability, affordability and quality. It comes in two sizes, small/medium and medium/large, in the most universally requested and flattering B1 shade. At $150 per arch, Easy Denture enables any practice to add the capability for instant immediate dentures, fitted by a dental assistant, with minimal investment in product stock.
