Type of Denture we offer

When you are ready to replace missing teeth you have a number of potential solutions available, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Replacing your missing teeth is a big decision and it is important to consider several factors.

 You don’t have to make this decision alone. Your dentist can help you assess the choices in light of your clinical needs, personal preferences and financial considerations and help you determine which one is best for you.

Valplast® flexible partials

Patients looking for a comfortable alternative to traditional dentures could be interested in Flexible dentures, available from Glynneath Dental.

Using advanced technology to fit around the shape of teeth and gums upon insertion, the flexible denture can be used when there is not enough bone for fitting dental implants to replace missing teeth.

The flexible denture works by flexing into position, not needing the use of metal clasping mechanisms to hold the dentures in place. Individuals with irregularities in the shape of their mouth could benefit greatly from the treatment and experience a growth to their self-confidence as a result.

What are Flexible dentures?

Flexible dentures could be the perfect solution for an individual who has lost one or more of their natural teeth as a result of gum disease, dental infection or a sporting injury. Using this method your Glynneath Dental professional can utilise a partial denture to replace missing teeth and get the smile back to its natural best.

The replacement of missing teeth can have a profound effect on the appearance and overall wellbeing of an individual. Without facial support from a denture following the removal of teeth, the face can often sag, which could make individuals appear older than they actually are. Also, the fixture of dentures can ensure oral health is maintained, as those with multiple missing teeth can often experience fracture or wear of the remaining teeth.

In addition, dentures can make it much easier for members of the public to carry out a number of tasks people usually take for granted, such as eating and speaking without difficulty.

What are the advantages of Flexible dentures?

Patients who wear flexible dentures are extremely unlikely to experience any pain or discomfort from the fixture, due to the lack of metal clasps or adhesive. Using this form of treatment, individuals are able to enjoy increased retention as a result of the custom-fitted design.

In addition, flexible dentures provide a more cosmetic solution for people by being more aesthetically pleasing than their traditional counterparts. The material used to create the fixture is transparent and blends in with the natural gum colour in the mouth. The metal clasps found in traditional dentures are replaced with tooth coloured clasps in flexible dentures.

The simple nature of the accessory means it can be quickly manufactured, which is an ideal solution for dental patients. The fact that there are a reduced number of components used means that there will be a significantly shorter waiting time.

Dental patients who are unable to receive alternative types of dentures as a result of irregularities concerning their mouth shape could benefit greatly from the flexible fitting due to the fact it adjusts to each individual.

Patients do not need to worry about the fixture coming loose or unclear speech as a result of the alien object because of the tight-fitting nature of the appliance.

What are Valplast dentures?

Valplast is a flexible resin based denture that is ideal for use as a partial denture as it is unbreakable in use. The biocompatible nylon thermoplastic denture contains physical and aesthetic properties to allow a patient’s natural gum tissue colour to appear through the material, which makes it almost invisible to the human eye.
