Valplast Dentures

Has anyone had any experience or know anything about Valplast flexible dentures?

Re: Valplast Dentures

valplast dentures are the newest options in removable partial dentures. they don't have any metal substructure and are extremely flexible. you can drop them, bend them on themselves and they don't break. since there is no metal you can't see the clasps like the old style ones. they are thinner than traditional partials so they are more comfortable. however if you have no teeth on the bottom sometimes they are too flexible so some metal can be added to provide extra rigidity.

they are more expensive, so depending on the situation i don't always recommend them. like if you don't have clasps that will show up front and you want to save some money go with the traditional, if asthetics are important to you, go with valplast.

Re: Valplast Dentures

I just got Valplast about 6 weeks ago.

The Valplast replaces 1 upper tooth on the left, and 3 upper teeth on the right.

This is my first experience with any kind of denture, and although I was
fairly depressed about it all I've come to accept them.

They fit REALLY well. Those suckers won't come out unless I WANT them
out, that's for sure.

The Valplast brand denture cleaner is not available in any store
around here, so I bought a supply thru their webpage... kind of.

Any questions in particular?
Can't guarantee I can answer them, but I'm a lousy listener.

Re: Valplast Dentures

I got an upper valplast denture 2 weeks ago even though they look good i dont like them. The clasps dig in to my gums unlike the metal clasps that hold around the teeth.

Re: Valplast Dentures

Thanks so much for the information. Does anyone know the approximate cost of Valplast as compared to other dentures?

Re: Valplast Dentures

Lou22 have those valplasts adjusted bro! don't settle for something that doesn't feel right. should be done free.

valplasts are more expensive, and pricing is different from dentist to dentist.

Mine did too at the beginning, but after a couple of weeks the tender
spots went away without any treatment by the Dentist.
Now I pop 'em in in the AM...no problem...no discomfort.

The Dentist told me he could treat any sore spots or adjust them somehow
if the fit was uncomfortable.

I haven't received a bill or statement yet, but i believe I was quoted a
price of $795 for my Valplast which allegedly included 2 or 3 office visits
if I'm remembering correctly. I was kinda stressed at the time, so my memory might be faulty.

I don't have a clue as to what 'other'
partial might cost. Sorry.

Re: Valplast Dentures

I don't know if you can use Polident, or not.
The Dentist gave me a packet of Val-Clean to use with my Valplast.
The solution can be used for 7-10 days the instructions say.

It isn't sold in stores around here, but you can order a 10 month supply
from Valplast for $20 + shipping (They charged me $3.85).

Re: Valplast Dentures

Actually the Valplast warranty is just for the pink part, the teeth aren't warranted against breaking.
Cheers,

Re: Valplast Dentures

I need dentures for the same teeth as you. I was wondering if the flexible dentures cover the roof of your mouth.
