Valplast partial dentures have no metal clasps and are light weight. The material is translucent, so the patient’s own gums show through, giving a very natural appearance. Another great advantage of Valplast is its resistance to breakage, as it is surprisingly strong relative to its size and weight. No preparation of the teeth is needed (unlike a traditional metal framework partial denture) and impressions are taken using high quality impression material and then transported to our Valplast partial denture lab. All appointments are done on-site including follow-up adjustment appointments until the patient is comfortable and satisfied.
WHAT ARE DENTURES?
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and adjacent tissues. It is made of acrylic resin or vinyl, sometimes in combination with various metals. Complete dentures replace all the teeth, while a partial denture fills in the spaces created by missing teeth and prevents other teeth from changing position.
Impressions are taken using the same high quality materials as in a fixed office. We have the option of pouring the impression on-site or transporting it to our lab specializing in dentures. All appointments are done on-site and easily performed by our treating dentist. It typically requires 3-5 visits for a denture to be completed. All follow-up and adjustments are done on-site until the patients is comfortable and satisfied.
Dentures can be cleaned on-site using a portable ultrasonic cleaning machine and specialized denture cleaning solution. The solution in water cleans tartar and debris using high powered ultrasonic vibrations.
