Valplast® is a type of flexible, nylon resin that is developed for the use in flexible removable denture. Valplast® Flexible Partials were invented in the early 1950’s as an alternative to traditional metal and acrylic removable partial dentures (RPD’s). By using a flexible nylon base, Valplast® eliminates the need for metal frameworks or acrylic resins for the construction of removable partial dentures.
Tooth Replacement Options
When you’re ready to replace missing teeth, you have a number of potential solutions available, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Replacing your missing teeth is a big decision and it is important to consider several factors.
When considering a removable partial denture, many people find the Valplast® Flexible Partials to be the most comfortable option, and the final restoration can be made very quickly. While the cost is often higher than a partial made with visible clasps, the results of the flexible partial are beautiful, and patient satisfaction is very high. The Valplast® Flexible Partials involves only non-invasive procedures, and gives you confidence in your restoration while talking, eating and most importantly: smiling.
If you can’t bear the thought of visible metal clasps or a series of temporaries that change with each appointment, Valplast® Flexible Partials is an option that looks very natural and will stay beautiful and comfortable for years to come. Even fixed restorations that look good at first could deteriorate over time due to gum recession or changes in your mouth.
Denture acrylics and metal alloys may be prone to breakage and fracture over the course of time. Valplast® Flexible Partials come with a lifetime warranty against breakage and fracture for the denture base under normal use. Valplast® Flexible Partials can also be rebase and have teeth added to it if modifications are necessary over time.
If cost is your primary consideration, removable restorations are the more affortable solution, Valplast® combines great value with excellent aesthetic that often rival the appearance of more expensive fixed restorations.
