Introducing :                            Flexible Dentures


Flexible partial dentures are the comfortable, beautiful, and affordable choice. It was long thought that removable partial dentures had to be rigid to be effective. The innovation of the   Flexible Partial allows the restoration to adapt to the constant movement and flexibility in your mouth.

This is the underlying thinking behind the innovative flexible, removable partial denture. The flexibility, combined with strength and light weight, provides total comfort and great looks!

The preparation is relatively simple because your natural teeth don't need to be altered in any way. The partial denture  is virtually invisible because there are no telltale metal clasps and the material itself blends with the tissue in your mouth so that the only thing that shows is your beautiful smile.

When considering a removable partial, many people find the  Flexible Partial to be the most comfortable option, and the final restoration can be made very quickly! While the cost is often higher than a partial made with visible metal clasps, the results of the flexible partial are beautiful, and patient satisfaction is very high. The flexible partial involves only non-invasive procedures, and gives you confidence in your restoration while talking, eating, and most importantly: smiling!




 Patient Care Information


You’ll be glad to know that most patients become immediately accustomed to their delicate and light-weight  restoration. However,  patients may experience a brief adjustment period, especially if they have never worn a dental appliance before. Should you experience any persistent irritation, please inform us  so that the necessary adjustments can me made.


Flexible dentures , like your own teeth, require care and good oral hygiene. To keep your denture looking and feeling like new, please follow these simple directions:


1. Clean your  appliance regularly.

2. Soak your  appliance in water  for 10-15 minutes a day, or overnight at least three times a week.

3. Loose particles can be removed with the use of a sonic denture cleaner, or by placing the appliance under running water. Brushing an  appliance is not recommended as this may remove the polish and roughen the surface over time.

4. If possible, rinse your  dental appliance after eating to remove any food particles.

5. Keep the partial in water or in denture cleaner whenever it is not being worn to keep the surface hydrated.

6. Remember to brush your natural teeth and gums regularly as directed by your dentist.


Additional Tips:


  1. · Cleanse the   appliance daily and keep it in water or your cleaner whenever it is not being worn.

  2. · Store brands of denture cleaner are not recommended for cleaning a  flexible denture , as they are not effective and may contain ingredients that can damage the acryilc  or its color.

  3. · Toothpaste and toothbrushes may scratch or dull the surface of your   appliance. Be sure to remove your denture whenever you brush your natural teeth.

  4. · Please keep the appliance out of reach from pets. Dogs and other pets find dental appliances to be attractive chew toys.

  5. · Flerxible dentures are very durable and are designed to give long term performance under normal usage. Please note that the flexible material will resist fracture or breakage better than the synthetic teeth that are embedded in it.. Small accidents such as dropping the appliance in the sink or on the floor will not damage the flexible denture , but may cause the teeth to fracture. Please handle the appliance with care.
