Valplast partials offer a completely different experience. One of the most frequently asked questions is ‘are Valplast partials comfortable to wear’ and is often asked by people who have struggled with traditional dentures. The answer is yes. The next most commonly asked question is ‘why are valplast partials comfortable to wear?’
Why are Valplast Partials Comfortable to Wear?
One of the reasons for the increased comfort is that valplast dentures are more able to conform to the natural shape of the mouth due to the materials used. Valplast dentures don’t use hard acrylic, and don’t have any metal parts. Instead they are made out of a strong nylon material that has a lot of flexibility. This material was originally developed more than fifty years ago, so it has been thoroughly tested and is very reliable. A huge advantage to using this strong flexible material is that valplast partial dentures are able to be made a lot thinner than traditional hard acrylic partial dentures, as they don’t need the extra strength given by a thicker base or metal bar. This makes them far less obtrusive to wear.
In fact these flexible partial dentures are far less noticeable than ordinary partials. The strong nylon material comes in a range of natural gum colors, and is so thin that it almost appears to be slightly transparent. The advantage of this is that it allows some of the natural gum color to show through, making this type of denture far less visible than others. The clasps are made out of the same flexible material, so they easily blend in with the teeth and gums. A Valplast denture feels smooth and comfortable to the tongue. It makes wearing a denture a pleasure rather than a pain.
Are Valplast Partials Comfortable Straightaway?
Most patients find their new Valplast denture very easy to wear, especially if they have previously worn a bulky acrylic denture, but all dental appliances usually require a short adjustment period. There shouldn’t be any irritations or discomfort after this period, but sometimes it is necessary to make slight adjustments to a dental appliance to ensure a perfect fit.
It is important to look after any denture, and Valplast dentures are no exception. They need daily cleaning, and must be soaked in cleaner at least three times a week. The partial must be kept in water or denture cleaner whenever it is not being used in order to maintain its flexibility. Following these simple instructions should ensure your Valplast denture remains comfortable to wear for a very long time, and that it retains its good looks. Then if anyone asks, ‘are Valplast partials comfortable to wear’ you’ll be able to answer yes.
These types of dentures are suitable for patients who may have metal allergies, or who may be sensitive to some of the materials used in acrylic dentures. They are an extremely versatile option as if you lose another tooth in the future it may well be possible to add another tooth to the Valplast denture. The nylon resin base comes with a lifetime guarantee, although this doesn’t extend to the teeth on the denture. Obviously this type of denture isn’t suitable for everyone, but we will be able to advise you as to whether or not it is the correct option for you at your next appointment.
