A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues.
They are of 2 types: Complete and partial dentures.
Complete or full dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
Partial dentures can be made from plastic or chrome cobalt metal.
The newest type of dentures are made from a flexible resin, like Valplast. Valplast is a flexible resin-based denture that is ideal for use as a partial denture as it is unbreakable in use. The biocompatible nylon thermoplastic denture contains physical and aesthetic properties to allow a patient’s natural gum tissue colour to appear through the material, which makes it almost invisible to the human eye.
It eliminates the use of metal clasps and is much more comfortable and aesthetic that traditional dentures.
Ask your dentist about more information and suitability.
