If you’re reluctant to smile due to missing teeth, we want to help restore your smile, and something even more priceless-confidence-with dentures. At Excellence in Dentistry, we offer comfortable options to help you enjoy a self-assured smile.

Metal Free Dentures

woman holding cheeks smilingThe use of different types of metals in dental appliances, like dentures, combined with an electrolyte-like saliva, has the potential to create an electric current. Known as oral galvanism, when it occurs in the mouth, it can cause symptoms like localised pain, jaw joint disorder, headaches and more.

To prevent this from happening, a standard was set to make all restorations, including removable frameworks, from the same high noble alloy, and not to mix metals at all.

Now, we have a better option—Valplast® flexible nylon-base partial dentures. Comfortable and safe for patients, if you’re looking for an alternative to the metal wires, hooks, and clasps visible on partial dentures, this is the way to go.

What are Valplast Dentures?

With a flexible nylon base, it’s perfect for partial dentures. Lightweight and amazingly comfortable, they’re almost indiscernible from normal gums. This product has been in use for over 50 years. It is bio-compatible and produced from thermoplastic nylon.

More importantly, the process is non-invasive, easy and fast to produce, making them a great quick and convenient choice.

Types of Dentures We Offer

No matter how many teeth you are missing—one, two, or all—Excellence in Dentistry can create the following comfortable and natural-looking dentures to restore your smile:

Partial—For patients who have lost one, two or a few natural teeth, this removable tooth replacement completes the spaces left by lost or missing teeth and is attached to your natural teeth.

Implant-Retained (Snap-in)—Also known as click-on dentures, these rest on the gums but stay in place firmly by getting retention from implants. Because these appliances sit firmly in place, wearers may feel more confident and at ease in social situations.

Temporary Full—Used whilst patients wait for their All-On-4 implant-retained dentures, but these aren’t the same as the complete ones that a prosthetist would produce as a more permanent solution.

Frequently Asked Questions: Partial Dentures

What are partial dentures?

These removable appliances replace one or more missing teeth when some natural teeth remain. They attach to existing teeth with clasps or precision attachments.

Can I eat normally with this type of appliance?

Yes, with time and practice, eating with partial dentures becomes comfortable. Start with soft foods and gradually reintroduce harder or chewy foods as you become accustomed to your appliance.

How do I maintain this type of dental appliance?

Clean your appliance daily using a soft brush and denture cleaner. Remove your dentures before sleeping, and brush and floss your remaining natural teeth to maintain oral hygiene.

Can I get partial dentures?

You need to see the dentist first to discuss your wishes and expectations and get detailed information on the cons and pros of partial dentures to decide if they are a suitable treatment for you.

Also, your mouth and gums must be assessed comprehensively to know if you are a good candidate for partial dentures. For example, people who grind or clench their teeth may break their partial dentures. Or, those with poor oral hygiene may get severe decay on their natural teeth supporting the partial.

Frequently Asked Questions: Valplast Dentures

What are Valplast dentures?

Valplast is a flexible, nylon-based material used to make partial dentures. These tooth replacement options are lightweight, durable, and designed to blend in naturally with the gums.

Are they better than traditional acrylic partial ones?

Valplast tooth replacement options offer advantages such as flexibility, comfort, and aesthetics. They are less prone to breakage and can provide a more natural appearance than traditional acrylic dentures.

What is the disadvantage of this type of dental appliance?

They cannot be modified, so if you lose more teeth, you will need to have your denture replaced.

How do I care for them?

Clean your appliance regularly using a soft brush and mild soap or denture cleaner. Avoid using abrasive materials or harsh chemicals that could damage the flexible material.

Frequently Asked Questions: Snap-in Appliances

What are the benefits of snap-in dentures?

These appliances are more stable than traditional dentures and do not float or become ill-fitting and unstable. This option offers better chewing ability and stronger biting forces. The snap-in option appears and functions more like natural teeth. These dentures help to preserve the jawbone structure and prevent further bone loss and the sunken-in appearance that often accompanies tooth loss.

The top appliance can be made U-shaped, which is the perfect solution for people with strong gag reflexes or bony protrusions on their palate.

How much do implant-retained dentures cost?

The cost will vary depending on the number and type of implants used to support the appliances.

Are they worth it?

Yes, these dentures provide strong retention and improved comfort compared to conventional types, making them well worth the investment.

Are there any risks with having implant dentures?

Dental implants can cause complications like infections, nerve and tissue damage, and gum recession. No surgical procedure is completely without risk.

What can you eat with this type of appliance?

After adjusting to your dentures, you can eat most of the foods you ate with your natural teeth. Avoid highly sticky food like toffee, as it may dislodge your appliance. Food with little grains and seeds can get under your dentures and make you uncomfortable.

When should I clean my dentures?

It’s best to clean your appliance and implants once or twice a day, particularly before sleeping.
