People are talking about...Flexible Partials with No Clasps! Yes, the Rumours are TRUE!
Flexible Partial is an Unbreakable, Removable Partial that many people find quite comfortable. These lightweight partials are practically invisible and completely eliminate the metal clasps that you may have seen on other partials.
In fact, Valplast Flexible partials are fabricated without the use of a metal frame...made instead from a strong, durable plastic that snaps securely and comfortably into place around your existing natural teeth and gums. The plastic is so strong that the partial made from it can be very thin, which eliminates that heavy, bulky feeling which made wearing partials so unpleasant in the old days. Plus, the color, shape and design of Valplast Flexible Partials blends in well with the natural appearance of your gums, making them virtually unnoticable.
You may be interested to know that the plastic used in Valplast was first developed 50 years ago, and has been used in professional dentistry since 1954. Valplast is in the nylon family, stronger and more flexible than the acrylic used in other kinds of dentures and partials. Additionally, denturists in some countries have recommended Valplast as a viable alternative to acrylic for patients who have allergic reactions to acrylic.
This is an exciting time in dentistry with new developments such as Valplast ushering in a new era of lighter, more comfortable and more aesthetic removable partial dentures.
