If you have lost your teeth through an accident, gum disease or due to decay, having Valplast dentures means that you do not have to live with missing teeth. How your teeth look can have a huge effect on your day-to-day life. However, there are treatments available at the Pearl Dental Clinic that can help boost your confidence.
What are Valplast dentures?
Valplast is a brand of flexible nylon based denture. Valplast dentures are natural looking, extremely durable and very comfortable.
How are Valplast dentures different to normal plastic dentures?
Valplast dentures are made from an incredibly strong nylon resin and each comes with a lifetime guarantee protecting them from breakages or fractures. Compared to traditional dentures, Valplast dentures have no metal clasps and the transparent material above the teeth makes them appear more natural. They are very lightweight and comfortable too.
Valplast dentures are normally smaller than standard acrylic dentures, allowing the roof of the mouth or the floor of the mouth to be free of denture extensions. This makes them very comfortable and allows patients to taste food more easily.
Valplast dentures are placed in hot water for a few seconds before wearing. This makes the material soft and flexible. Once inserted into the mouth it moulds itself tightly into place, reducing the need for denture adhesives.
Because of their high-quality design, Valplast dentures can cost a little more than traditional dentures, but most patients would agree that they are worth it for a more comfortable, natural-looking denture.
Valplast dentures are also available in different gum shades to match patients gum shade.
Who is a suitable candidate for Valplast dentures?
Valplast denture designs are very versatile and can be used to replace one, two, or multiple teeth. Patients who suffer from allergies to acrylic or metals can use this type of nylon denture.
What is the procedure for getting Valplast dentures?
- You will need to attend a denture consultation for our dentists to assess your missing teeth and let you know if Valplast dentures will be suitable for your case. If so, impressions will be taken if you wish to proceed.
- A second visit will be needed for large-span dentures. This is to measure the bite and your occlusion. Smaller Valplast dentures do not require this visit.
- The final visit will be for the fitting of the Valplast denture.
Taking care of your Valplast dentures
The strong nylon resin makes Valpast dentures virtually unbreakable in everyday life. The dentist will advise you on what hygiene habits you should implement, as well as which cleaning products would work best.
We recommend removing dentures at night when you sleep. However, you could wear your dentures at night as long as you maintain excellent denture hygiene.
