Flexible dentures provide a solution for patients who can’t or don’t want to use regular dentures.

They cling to the gums and often¬† don’t require denture adhesive or metal clasps to hold them in place.¬† Gum coloured clasps can be used to help

The material is clear and allows the natural gum color to show through.

Patients who wear flexible dentures are extremely unlikely to experience any pain or discomfort from the fixture, due to the lack of metal clasps or adhesive. Using this form of treatment, individuals are able to enjoy increased retention as a result of the custom-fitted design.

In addition, flexible dentures provide a more cosmetic solution for people by being more aesthetically pleasing than their traditional counterparts. The material used to create the fixture is transparent and blends in with the natural gum colour in the mouth. The metal clasps found in traditional dentures are replaced with tooth coloured clasps in flexible dentures.

 

The simple nature of the accessory means it can be quickly manufactured, which is an ideal solution for dental patients. The fact that there are a reduced number of components used means that there will be a significantly shorter waiting time.

Dental patients who are unable to receive alternative types of dentures as a result of irregularities concerning their mouth shape could benefit greatly from the flexible fitting due to the fact it adjusts to each individual.

Patients do not need to worry about the fixture coming loose or unclear speech as a result of the alien object because of the tight-fitting nature of the appliance. Another great advantage is that they aren’t brittle, so they’re less likely to shatter if they’re dropped
