Replacing lost or missing teeth has substantial benefits for your health and appearance. A complete or full denture replaces the natural teeth and provides support for cheeks and lips. Without this support, sagging facial muscles can make a person appear older and reduce their ability to eat and speak.A denture is an appliance which is worn to replace lost or missing teeth to enable you to enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence.
A complete or full denture is one that replaces all of the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws. A partial denture fills in the spaces created by lost or missing teeth and is attached to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments.
The base of a denture is called a plate and can be made of either acrylic (plastic) or metal. The teeth are normally made of acrylic and can be made to match your natural teeth. This is especially important in the case of partial dentures.
Valplast dentures don’t just provide a viable alternative to traditional dentures, they are a significant improvement, they are strong, they match well with existing teeth, and are flexible.
The major difference between Valplast dentures and conventional dentures is the material they are made from. Traditional dentures are usually acrylic or metal, which can take some time to get used to. Patients that use conventional dentures will need to learn how to hold the dentures in place with their cheek and tongue. This can be a hindrance for many people.
Valplast flexible dentures are made using a pressure-injected nylon base, which allows the denture to move more freely than dentures using acrylic or metal. In effect, this allows the dentures to be more lightweight and comfortable for the mouth.
