Complete Denture IFU

Dandy’s final dentures are fabricated using digital technology, allowing for a precise fit and customization to the patient's specific needs. They are made of a highly durable and biocompatible material, ensuring long-term comfort and function.

Indications for Use

Dandy’s final dentures are removable dental devices that replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues.


Final dentures should not be used in patients with uncontrolled periodontal disease, severe bone resorption, or oral lesions.

Potential Risks and Benefits of Complete Dentures

Advise patients of the following

The use of final dentures may have potential risks, including gum irritation, soreness, and discomfort. 

However, the benefits include improved speech, comfort, appearance, chewing, and digestion.

Directions for Use

To ensure proper use of final dentures, dental professionals and patients should follow these steps:

  • Before inserting the dentures, clean the patient’s mouth and gums with a soft-bristled toothbrush or oral rinse.
  • Hold the dentures by the edges and carefully place them into the patient’s mouth, using a rocking motion to ensure a secure fit.
  • The patient should bite down and swallow to seat the dentures properly.
  • If necessary, use a denture adhesive to improve retention.

Adjustment recommendations

  • Operate the bur at high speed, applying minimal pressure while using water.
    • It's important to maintain the temperature using water and air spray. This method helps prevent the formation of micro-fractures. A fine-grit diamond is advisable for adjustments, and air-only handpiece adjustments are not recommended.
    • For shaping different surfaces, specific tools are best:
      •  A football-shaped bur is effective for the occlusal and lingual surfaces, especially on anterior teeth 
      • A tapered bur is better suited for the buccal and lingual surfaces.

Cleaning and Care


Dandy recommends cleaning your dentures daily before and after every use.  Immediately after removal, use warm water (not to exceed 45°C/113°F) and dishwashing soap to remove remaining saliva and debris from the device.

  • Only use soft, antibacterial dish soap (liquid)
  • Do not use flavored or scented soaps
  • Do not use soaps with heavy dyes and colors


For periodic debris removal and maintenance, use a soft bristle brush to clean the inside of your appliance for debris removal. The denture should be cleaned with antibacterial denture cleaning solutions like Polident and Efferdent. These cleaners are designed for use in brief sessions of 10–15 minutes. Always make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for proper use.

Do not use:

Avoid immersing the denture in, or cleaning it with, any of the following substances: sodium hypochlorite (chlorine bleach), hydrogen peroxide, mouthwash, or alcohol products. Using these can lead to discoloration and damage to the material.

Storage instructions

  • Store final dentures in a clean, dry place when not in use. Avoid exposing the dentures to excessive heat or pressure, which may cause warping or other damage.
  • Final dentures are designed to last for several years with proper care and maintenance. Patients should contact your practice for evaluation and repair if dentures become damaged or lose their fit.

Additional Information

  • Clinical studies have shown final dentures to be an effective and reliable treatment option for patients with missing teeth.
  • If the patient experiences any adverse events, such as pain or irritation, they should discontinue use and contact your practice immediately.
  • Final dentures have a limited warranty, which may vary depending on the manufacturer.
  • Smoking with the dentures inserted can cause discoloration
