Valplast dentures are flexible dentures fitted to your gums. They are used to replace missing teeth and are more flexible and durable than normal acrylic dentures. They are made from a tough nylon type material that is lighter in the mouth making them feel more comfortable and look more natural.
Valplast dentures are also more hypo-allergenic than traditional acrylic dentures and tend to be smaller in size meaning there is less wear and tear on the roof/floor of your mouth so there is less irritation and discomfort.
Like with all dentures this process takes several appointments normally two weeks apart as different stages need to be met to ensure you are happy with the fit, shape and colour of the teeth before the final denture is fitted.
At your first appointment impressions will be taken of your mouth which will then be sent to our dental laboratory to make a special tray which is designed specifically for your mouth and also a wax bite block to measure how your teeth bite together. At the second stage, another impression will be taken using the special tray, made by the laboratory, and your bit taken using the wax block.
Two weeks after this appointment you will be asked to try in your denture, which will be made in wax, to check you like the appearance of the teeth. If you are unhappy then this is sent back to the laboratory and an additional appointment would be required to re-try the denture.
The final stage would then be to fit the finished denture. On occasion, you may need to return to the practice for a slight adjustment of the denture but the dentist would go through this with you at the final appointment.
