Are Flexible Dentures Right For You?

Are you looking for a high quality, comfortable, and natural looking alternative to traditional partial dentures? Learn more about the incredible features and benefits of the flexible dentures at our Calgary denture clinic.

Are you missing one or more teeth? A partial denture is a removable prosthetic that helps restore the function of your jaw by replacing any missing teeth. Whether you opt for traditional partial dentures, or Valplast/Flexilytes flexible dentures, wearing partial dentures has many benefits, including:

  • Improved chewing and speaking ability
  • Lower risk of further tooth loss
  • Bone loss prevention
  • More youthful appearance due to support for facial structure

Flexible Dentures at our Calgary Denture Clinic

Unlike traditional bulky partial dentures, flexible partials are made from a plastic material that fits neatly into your mouth and is virtually invisible. Even better? They don’t require metal clasps to keep them in place.

At our Calgary denture clinic, we often recommend this denture solution to our patients because the flexibility of this tooth replacement solution, combined with the light material and strength, provides total comfort and better aesthetics.

The two types of flexible partials we carry are:

Valplast Flexible Dentures

One of the most aesthetically pleasing, affordable, and comfortable methods of tooth loss replacement, Valplast flexible dentures are made from a cast thermoplastic material, making them thin and very light weight.

They also have invisible clasps that surround your natural teeth. Some of the great benefits of Valplast flexible dentures include:

  • More precise fit and retention
  • They’re biocompatible
  • Made from a translucent material which blends naturally with patients’ tissue tone
  • Speaking and eating is easier thanks to the flexible design
  • The lack of major connectors means that your dentures won’t collect food while you’re eating



FlexiLytes Dentures

FlexiLytes dentures are a great alternative to cast partial dentures. They are created using biocompatible thermoplastic, making them user-friendly and very versatile. They can be used with either clear or tissue-colored clasps for a better aesthetic appearance.

FlexiLyte dentures are popular with patients because they are:

  • Hypoallergenic
  • Metal/monomer free
  • Stain resistant
  • Easier to eat and speak with thanks to the flexible design


How Do I Know if Flexible Dentures Are The Right Choice For Me?

With the advancements in denture technology, there are now more options than ever for patients who suffer from tooth loss. Flexible partials are gaining popularity and while they’re very versatile, they’re best suited for patients who:

  • Have lost teeth in the same area of the mouth
  • Want a more comfortable alternative to traditional dentures
  • Don’t want the invasive treatment that comes with dental implants
  • Are recovering from implant surgery and waiting for their implants to fuse with the jawbone

It’s important to note that flexible partials do have certain limitations and cannot be used as a replacement for complete dentures or for patients suffering from extensive periodontal disease.
