A cast thermo plastic denture that is thin, lightweight, and flexible with invisible clasps that surround the natural teeth. Flexible partials are a quality premium product that offer the benefits of superior esthetics, comfort, function and bio-compatibility.
AESTHETIC – the translucent material blends naturally with the tissue tone and replaces clasps
COMFORTABLE – thin, lightweight and resilient with precision fit and retention
BIO-COMPATIBLE – non-allergenic, monomer and formaldehyde free
FUNCTIONAL – flexible to create a stress-breaker effect, with no minor or major connectors to collect food or affect speech
In dentistry there are many options for the replacement of missing teeth – dental implants, fixed bridges, removable partial dentures, and full dentures. Many patients choose removable partial dentures due to factors ranging from cost to physiology. Removable partial dentures became very popular many decades ago when chrome cobalt alloys and acrylic polymers first became available to the dental industry.
Dentists are prescribing Valplast Flexible Partials because it makes a better, stronger appliance faster. The strong, flexible nature of Valplast is perfectly suited to the variety of natural conditions in the mouth, simplifying design and enabling the flexible nylon resin to act as a built in stressbreaker in order to provide superior function and stress distribution in a removable partial denture.
Valplast is one of the most cosmetic, comfortable and affordable methods of tooth replacement available today.
Since 1953 millions of people have discovered the exceptional benefits that Valplast can bring to their appearance and confidence, providing them with something that they can truly smile about.Innovation is often inspired by the need to make improvements in peoples lives. Valplast® was first developed in the late 1940s when the acknowledged functional and cosmetic limitations of framework supported RPDs created a need to fundamentally change how removable partial dentures are designed and fabricated. Two young brothers, Arpad and Tibor Nagy, had the vision to experiment with the new polymers of the day (nylon) to create a type of partial denture that was able to address the fundamental requirements of retention, support and stability while at the same time provide beautiful aesthetics that are far superior to their metal counterparts. Their research gave birth to what is known today as Valplast®.
