Our Nylon Flexible Partial Dentures are generally made from thermoplastic nylon having a transparent appearance. The transparency is more cosmetically appealing since the dentures blend in naturally to the gum lining. Flexible dentures do not contain any metal, therefore providing a more natural, comfortable look and feel. The thermoplastic nylon is used to clasp/hook between the teeth, rather than metal dentures that can at times be visible.
Unlike acrylic dentures, they do not cover the entire palette and in doing so are less likely to cause difficulties while eating or communicating.
What is Valplast®?
Valplast® is a trandemarked branded Flexible Denture material. These are often ideal for partial dentures or unilateral teeth restorations. Valplast® allows for natural gum tones to appear through the material. Flexible dentures are stronger than acrylic dentures since they are flexible in nature, which allows for natural movement of the mouth.
The benefit of Valplast® is that they can be efficiently re-aligned and adjusted in the future. This allows for teeth to be added in the future.
