Flexible Partials have a more comfortable fit, are lighter in the mouth, and are easier to eat with than traditional metal partials. One of the many benefits of DuraFlex and Valplast is that little to no tooth preparation is needed.
Partial dentures are a removable appliance that consists of artificial or prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic-acrylic base. Partial dentures are used for patients who are missing one or more natural teeth, but not all of their teeth. These dentures work with both the upper and lower jaw, remaining secure in either location during use.
Partial dentures are a great addition to a smile that is missing teeth because it fills in the spaces and prevents other remaining teeth from experiencing movement and damage from overuse. Partial dentures will also provide a realistic replacement option that improves one’s smile and confidence.
The process of receiving your customized partial dentures is relatively easy when compared to more invasive replacement procedures that take a long time, like dental implants. The creation and fitting of your partial dentures will take a two weeks at most. We will first make impressions and molds of your remaining teeth, gums, and jaw that will help us create partial dentures that fit you perfectly.
