You may have been told by your dentist that you will need dentures. This can sometimes be a complete shock, and you may not know what to do for your best option. One of the options open to you is to visit our dental surgery to discuss Valplast dentures with our denture technician. These are often a good choice for younger adults who have lost teeth due to accidents or gum disease. There are several things about Valplast dentures which makes them different.
Valplast dentures are typically available through private treatment, and are flexible dentures which are fitted to your gums. They are used to replace the missing teeth which would have been in your gums, and are sometimes known as partial dentures, since they don’t replace the entire set of teeth. They are flexible and durable, and can also be made from a tough, nylon-type material which is lighter in the mouth than the standard set of dentures. These dentures look natural, feel comfortable, and fit easily into the mouth, making them some of the best denture sets around.
The chief way in which Valplast dentures are different from the standard set available on the NHS is the fact that they are more hypo-allergenic than traditional dentures. This means that even if you have had soreness and irritation caused by an immune reaction to acrylic or metal dentures, you are likely to benefit from using Valplast.
The dentures are also different in that they tend to be much smaller than the standard acrylic dentures. This means that there is less wear and tear on the roof or floor of the mouth, so there is less irritation and less discomfort. As they are smaller, they are also less likely to affect the movement of the tongue and lips, so you can speak more naturally.
The dentures are also different in the way that they are fitted to the mouth. Often, they are not sized until they arrive at the dentist’s office. When the patient is fitted with the dentures, they are immersed in hot water, and then fitted to the gums. Patients tend to use this method at home, heating them up and then inserting them into the mouth so that they take the shape of the gum line. This means that there is more adherence, and better grip even without the use of glues.
