Valplast Flexible Partials
Valplast flexible partials are metal free restorations designed to fit comfortably and discreetly into the mouth, blending seamlessly with surrounding teeth. Valplast partials have been produced and perfected for more than 50 years, and millions of dental patients have turned to them for long-term tooth replacement. They are highly pliable and completely non-breakable, ensuring that Valplast partial denture wearers do not have to be concerned about dropping their restorations as they would be with traditional partials.
Did you know…
that Valplast flexible partials are made without the use of metal? In fact, the durable plastic material Valplast dentures are made from is made to fit securely over natural teeth and gums without the use of metal clasps. Many patients feel that the lightweight Valplast flexible partials are easier to adapt to than traditional partials, as they are thinner and feel more natural in the mouth.

Will I need to follow any special instructions in caring for my new Valplast partial dentures?
Yes. You can preserve the look and feel of your Valplast partial dentures by cleaning your prosthesis every day and allowing it to soak for approximately 15 minutes 3 times a week.
