Flexible Dentures Calgary

 

Unlike traditional, bulky dentures, flexible partial dentures such as Valplast and FlexiLytes are made from a plastic material which fits neatly into your mouth and is virtually invisible. In addition, they DO NOT require metal clasps to keep them in place.

At Future Smiles, we often recommend this tooth replacement solution to our patients. The flexibility of these dentures, combined with their strength and light material, provides total comfort and great aesthetics.
