Flexible Dentures

The flexible dentures (Valplast) are being used more and more commonly for temporary, or on occasion permanent, replacement of missing teeth. These dentures are providing a comfortable and successful alternative to traditional acrylic dentures.Flexible dentures are actually made of a form of nylon first introduced into dentistry in the 1950s. Technically known as super-polyamides. The material is thermoplastic, meaning it will change shape under high heat so that it can be injection-molded into flexible denture bases to which replacement teeth are subsequently attached.

The flexibility of these dentures provides several advantages over acrylic dentures alternatives made of rigid, acrylic plastic resin. Flexible, nylon-based RPDs can look realistic, stay securely in place and be more comfortable to wear. Instead of metal clasps, they have thin finger-like extensions that fit or snap into natural concavities in the crowns of the teeth near the gum line. The flexible dentures also provides an option for cosmetic improvement of adjacent teeth that appear elongated due to gum recession: The realistic-looking, gum-colored base can be made to cover areas where natural gum tissue has receded (shrunk down) and partially exposed tooth roots so that flexible dentures provide a smile improvement and offer an instant aesthetic solution.
