Tooth loss influences the effectiveness of the chewing function. In addition, it can cause gastrointestinal pathologies due to poor chewing function. Dental prosthesis help to restore this lost chewing function and also provide better aesthetics.

Dental prosthetics is a specialty of dentistry that deals with the restoration and maintenance of oral functions, well-being and the health of the stomatognathic system.

Classically shaped prosthesis have been classified into fixed prosthesis and removable prosthesis. Removable prosthesis are those that the patient can remove from the mouth whenever he wants and, on the other hand, the fixed ones remain fixed in the mouth and cannot be removed.

The prosthesis Valplast It is a type of removable partial denture that is flexible.

Valplast is a material that is made from biocompatible nylon and thermoplastic resin provides an ideal degree of flexibility and stability. Furthermore, the color, shape and design of Valplast partial dentures blend perfectly with the natural appearance of the gingival tissues, making the denture almost invisible.

Since the strength of Valplast resin does not require a metal frame, so it eliminates the metallic taste that many patients complain about with conventional partials. It also allows the prosthesis to be made thin enough with non-metallic hooks to avoid the bulky feel often associated with large, non-aesthetic traditional metal partials. One of the attractive aspects of Valplast partials is that they can be built from two good impressions and a precise bite ratio, along with the desired shade.

On the other hand, the Valpast prosthesis is difficult to repair in the clinic and specialized equipment is needed for its manufacture.

This type of partial denture is indicated in patients who have good oral hygiene and who cannot wear metallic or acrylic partial dentures due to allergies to the materials from which they are made. In addition, they are recommended in patients with bone exostoses in whom preprosthetic surgical treatment is not recommended, such as in patients of advanced ages or medical problems). In addition, they are recommended in those patients who have both good dental and bone support.

Thus, Valplast prosthesis are a highly aesthetic option and recommended for those situations in which the conventional partial prosthesis is not required.
