Flexible Partial Dentures

Dentures have always been an affordable and non-invasive option to restore missing teeth, but they don’t always get a great press! When we suggest flexible partial dentures as an alternative to permanent tooth replacement, patients often worry that they will be uncomfortable, will move in their mouth, or cause issues eating. And of course ‘flexible’ dentures sounds like a bit of an oxymoron, who wants flexible teeth?!

But actually these dentures are a flexible solution, allowing you to remove them whenever you want and made out of nylon resin so they are robust, lightweight and flexible. This great innovation in prosthetic dentistry acts and looks just like real teeth. They fit snuggly and comfortably in your mouth, they don’t ‘chunk’ or reveal any metal when you smile, and they can handle food just as your real teeth can.

Unlike acrylic or metal dentures, because of their flexible composition they won’t break if you drop them in the sink, and they’re also a more affordable choice than other denture options.
