Partial dentures

VALPLAST FLEXIBLE PARTIAL DENTURES

Valplast is the flexibly solution to missing teeth, its flexibility combined with strength and lightweight provides both comfort and great looks.

If you’ve lost all or one or two of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, a complete or partial denture can replace your missing teeth and your smile. Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making a person look older. A denture also will help you to eat and speak, things that people often take for granted until their natural teeth are lost.

What is Valplast?

Valplast is a flexible denture base resin, which is ideal for partial dentures as it is unbreakable in normal use. The resin is a biocompatible nylon thermoplastic with unique physical and esthetic properties. Valplast allows a patient’s natural tissue tone to appear through the material, making it virtually invisible in the mouth.

Who is a Valplast partial denture suitable for?

Valplast provides a fully functional, yet aesthetically superior partial denture. The practical invisibility of Valplast makes it ideal for Individuals who have missing teeth and prefer not to have a fixed dental bridge or dental implant. Compared to traditional metal partial dentures, Valplast® offers better aesthetics, comfort and durability. Patients who have previously worn cast frame partial dentures say that Valplast flexible partial dentures feel more natural and comfortable in the mouth, due to its thinness and lightweight, plus gives them more confidence when eating and smiling because of the excellent retention and aesthetics. Ask your dentist, who will be able to advise you of your suitability for a Valplast flexible partial denture.

Will Valplast break under stress?
The Valplast® resin is guaranteed never to break under normal wear and tear for the lifetime of the appliance. This warranty covers the Valplast® resin (pink, nylon material) that is used to make the denture, but not the teeth that are embedded in it. If you feel that your partial may be broken, please contact your dentist first to see how they can assist you. Even in instances where a warranty repair is necessary, your dentist will need to speak to a Valplast representative to find out how we can help to repair or replace the partial. *Please note that our company does not manufacture artificial teeth or custom made Valplast appliances, which are fabricated in a dental laboratory. This warranty only covers breakage and fracture of the Valplast® resin, and not artificial teeth.
Can I have a tooth added to my Valplast?
Yes you can! Your dentist will have to send the partial to a Certified Valplast® Laboratory to have the tooth or teeth added to it, and you may have to go without your partial for a few days. The partial will come back to you looking brand new, with the new addition hardly visible! Please have your dentist contact us if they need to find a Valplast® laboratory that is capable of providing this service. Sometimes it may be better to have a new denture fabricated than to modify your existing one. Speak to your dentist about which procedure will be suitable for you.
Is Valplast suitable for people with allergies to common dental materials?
Patients that suffer allergic reactions to common dental materials have been using Valplast® restorations for more than fifty years with excellent results. Valplast® is a thermoplastic nylon material which contains no acrylic monomer and a completely metal free coloring agent, making it an excellent choice for patients who suffer allergic reactions to acrylic and metal dental materials. No cadmium or harmful metals are used in Valplast® flexible dental resin. Please have your dentist or allergist contact us if you would like us to send them a sample chip of Valplast® resin for testing.
Can Valplast be used for full dentures?
In most situations Valplast is reserved only for partial dentures. Full dentures do require some degree of rigidity in order to stay in place in the mouth and the flexibility of Valplast may not be suitable for the application of a full denture. However, there are some situations where Valplast may be well suited to a full denture application, including patients whom are allergic to denture acrylics, patients that are prone to breaking their acrylic dentures, patients whom can not wear a rigid full denture due to the shape of their mouth, or patients who have dental implants for the purpose of retaining a complete denture. Speak to your dentist about the possibility of wearing a full denture if you have had difficulty wearing a rigid acrylic denture in the past.
