Modern dentures

Traditionally, dentures are made from acrylic or where greater strength is required, metal cobalt chromium.  However there are good modern alternatives to choose from.  Here at EDC, we provide dentures made from flexible Valplast material and strong aesthetic metal free Ultaire AKP denture.

These materials are excellent providing not only strength, but are flexible to allow excellent grip around gums and natural teeth.  They also generally are made thinner and cover much less area especially in the roof of the mouth.


Valplast® flexible partials


Valplast® flexible partials could be the solution for you to replace one or more teeth. Unlike more traditional ridged, bulky and unstable dental materials Valplast flexible partial denture are made from a flexible plastic material which fits neatly into your mouth and is virtually invisible. They do NOT require any unsightly metal clasps to keep them in place.
