A more comfortable and smaller alternative to plastic dentures is the flexible nylon denture. This denture uses advanced technology to fit around the shape of existing teeth and gums in a comfortable and flexible way.
Flexible dentures could be the perfect solution for an individual who has lost one or more of their natural teeth. This natural replacement of missing teeth can have a profound effect on the appearance and overall well-being of an individual.
Valplast dentures are a proprietary brand of flexible dentures which like other flexible dentures are made from nylon. This type of material is ideal for use as a partial denture as it is unbreakable. The biocompatible nylon thermoplastic denture has physical and aesthetic properties to allow a patient’s natural gum tissue colour to appear through the material.
During the initial denture consultation, our dentists will ensure that flexible dentures are suited to your lifestyle and dental needs. They will then take impressions of your jaws and teeth. These impressions will be sent to the laboratory for construction of the device. The laboratory constructs the flexible denture and returns it back to the clinic for adjustments and final fitting.
At Pearl Dental Clinic we have an on-site denture technician which means we can make express custom-made dentures 7 days a week.
Metal dentures are a good removable denture alternative to flexible dentures.
Fixed alternative options include dental implants and dental bridges. Dental implants require a little surgery to create a natural looking replacement. Dental bridges are a form of fixed restoration used to replace a missing tooth by attaching to adjacent teeth.
Flexible dentures cost from £595 depending on size of the denture and this includes the laboratory cost for the denture and all the appointments required for measurements and adjustments to be carried out. You can have your denture treatment now and spread the cost of your denture interest-free with our 0% dental finance plans.
