DENTURES -VALPLAST - KEW GARDENS
While traditional dentures are a popular option for teeth replacement, Valplast® Dentures are the only denture that offers you the level of comfort,customization and confidence that you can get with a dental restoration. They are also the only type of denture that works to combat jaw bone resorption, the cause of the aged or “sunken in” facial appearance that occurs when we lose our teeth.
Unknown to most patients who experience tooth loss are the issues that occur as a result of not having teeth in the form of jawbone deterioration. The bone material that the tooth root is attached to is accustomed to physical stimulation that is produced by normal behaviors of biting and chewing. As long as natural teeth are in place and disease is absent, our upper and lower jaws can be expected to remain healthy and intact. However the loss of our teeth and their former replacement – traditional dentures that are designed to rest on top of the gum tissue – do not provide direct stimulation to the jaw bone material and thus do nothing to combat the effects of jawbone resorption, resulting in patients who look much older than they really are.
Valplast® Dentures are designed to stimulate the jawbone by creating a better fitting denture that rests partially on the muscles. They are placed to build the bite at a position that the muscles will best function; the same position that provides the greatest facial support and works to achieve stability and greater facial aesthetics.
Advantages Over Traditional Dentures
Valplast is the registered brand name of a specific type of flexible partial dentures; this type of denture represents a major innovation in the field of dental prosthetics, and in general, Valplast dentures are more expensive than basic, inflexible denture types.
Also occasionally known as flexi-dentures or flexible dentures, Valplast is a unique option on the denture market, and it is harder to make than other types of dentures, including acrylic dentures, which are easier to manufacture, which helps make them among them most affordable types of dentures.
Valplast®offer many advantages over traditional dentures in both health and aesthetic arenas. Although more expensive than traditional dentures, there is no comparison to the benefits Valplast® their wearers. Although economy dentures may be tempting because of their cost-saving factors, the added benefit of having a denture that maintains and supports your face as well as allows you to eat whatever you want is much more appeaing than one which leads to jawbone deterioration and an aged appearance.
What Sets Valplast® Dentures Apart?
Valplast® flexible dentures are far more comfortable than traditional dentures. While traditional dentures are made of bulky, rigid plastic materials, Valplast® is composed of thin, flexible materials. These dentures fit discreetly in the mouth and do not require any metal clasps to hold them in place. Instead, they attach to the natural teeth with the same thin plastic that sits over the gum line. This plastic is so thin that it is almost transparent. As a result, the Valplast® flexible dentures pick up characteristics of the underlying gum tissue and blend in seamlessly with the natural gums and teeth. This device is more comfortable than traditional dentures, more discreet than traditional dentures, and yet still maintains its strength and durability. In fact, Valplast® uses nylon, which is actually stronger than the acrylic that is typically used in the fabrication of other partial dentures.
Candidates for Valplast® Dentures
There are several treatment options available to those who have suffered from adult tooth loss, and each option has its own advantages and disadvantages. Valplast® flexible dentures are suitable for many of our patients. Patients that may be ideal candidates for Valplast® flexible dentures include:
- Patients who have lost a group of teeth from the same area of the mouth
- Patients who want a less invasive treatment option than a dental bridge or implant-supported dentures
- Patients who are looking for a more comfortable alternative to traditional partial dentures
- Patients who are recovering from dental implant surgery (Valplast® flexible dentures are a great temporary restoration while a patient waits for their dental implants to fuse with the jawbone so that permanent restorations can be placed)
