Flexible Dentures

Patients looking for a comfortable alternative to acrylic and metal dentures could be interested in Flexible dentures, available from Pearl Dental Clinic.

Using advanced technology to fit around the shape of teeth and gums upon insertion, the flexible denture can be used when there is not enough bone for fitting dental implants to replace missing teeth.

The flexible denture works by flexing into position, not needing the use of metal clasping mechanisms to hold the dentures in place. Individuals with irregularities in the shape of their mouth could benefit greatly from the treatment and experience a growth to their self-confidence as a result.

What are Flexible dentures?

Flexible dentures could be the perfect solution for an individual who has lost one or more of their natural teeth as a result of gum disease, dental infection or a sporting injury. Using this method your Pearl Dental Clinic dentist can utilise a partial denture to replace missing teeth and get the smile back to its natural best.

The replacement of missing teeth can have a profound effect on the appearance and overall wellbeing of an individual. Without facial support from a denture following the removal of teeth, the face can often sag, which could make individuals appear older than they actually are. Also, the fixture of dentures can ensure oral health is maintained, as those with multiple missing teeth can often experience fracture or wear of the remaining teeth.

In addition, dentures can make it much easier for members of the public to carry out a number of tasks people usually take for granted, such as eating and speaking without difficulty.

What are the advantages of Flexible dentures?

flexible denturesPatients who wear flexible dentures are extremely unlikely to experience any pain or discomfort from the fixture, due to the lack of metal clasps or adhesive. Using this form of treatment, individuals are able to enjoy increased retention as a result of the custom-fitted design.

In addition, flexible dentures provide a more cosmetic solution for people by being more aesthetically pleasing than their traditional counterparts. The material used to create the fixture is transparent and blends in with the natural gum colour in the mouth. The metal clasps found in traditional dentures are replaced with tooth coloured clasps in flexible dentures.

The simple nature of the accessory means it can be quickly manufactured, which is an ideal solution for dental patients. The fact that there are a reduced number of components used means that there will be a significantly shorter waiting time.

Dental patients who are unable to receive alternative types of dentures as a result of irregularities concerning their mouth shape could benefit greatly from the flexible fitting due to the fact it adjusts to each individual.

Patients do not need to worry about the fixture coming loose or unclear speech as a result of the alien object because of the tight-fitting nature of the appliance.

What are Valplast dentures?

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.

Do I qualify for Valplast dentures?

Individuals looking for an alternative to dental bridges or dental implants to replace missing teeth could find their ideal solution in this cosmetic treatment. Compared to more traditional methods of replacement, Valplast dentures are cheaper.

The thin and lightweight nature of the device allows patients to feel more confident when eating and speaking, due to its effective retention.

What does the procedure entail?

Initially patients will undergo a consultation with their Pearl Dental Clinic dentist to ensure this type of treatment is suited to their lifestyle and medical needs.

The dentist will take impressions of the patient’s jaws and teeth and send the impressions to the lab for construction of the flexible dentures.

The laboratory constructs the flexible denture and returns it back to the clinic for adjustments and final fitting.

The patients can then place the denture in hot water before placing it into their mouth to allow for the flexible denture material to become soft and take the shape of their gums in the region of the missing teeth.

Are there any alternative treatments to Flexible dentures?

Pearl Dental Clinic provides a number of alternative treatments for people looking for a more permanent solution to missing teeth, which may be effective for individuals who are uncomfortable with the removable nature of flexible dentures.

Dental implants give the impression of natural teeth by installing a permanent fixture into the mouth using a metal fixture, which is usually created from titanium. Throughout the process, the jawbone accepts the material, giving the impression of a natural tooth.

Dental bridges are a form of restoration used to replace a missing tooth by fusing permanently with adjacent teeth. Usually, the corrective fixture is created by reducing the size of the teeth on either side of the space in the mouth in a bid to make room for the bridge.

    Good emergency care and listening to what is best for the patient

  • Pearl Dental Clinic

    Shortly before Christmas last year I was in severe pain with toothache. Unfortunately due to some unpleasant experiences I had not been to the dentist regularly for some time. My usual dentist was unable to see me urgently but after some research on the internet I found Pearl Dental Clinic. I phoned at once and actually spoke to Dr Zahra Esfahani who was able to see me almost immediately.
    Since that first visit I have undergone a course of treatment which has improved the condition and look of my teeth including cleaning and the fitting of a denture. The Pearl website states that Dr Zahra Esfahani is a specialist with nervous patients I can confirm that this is definitely the case and that I will now be seeing Dr Esfahani regularly, she has restored my faith in dentists! I cannot recommend Pearl Dental highly enough.
