Wait no longer, flexible dentures are here! Whether it's your first time choosing a denture, or if you are just plain tired of your old painful dentures rubbing against your gums, flexible dentures simply have one of the highest comfort levels of any dentures available. How long has it been since you've sat down at the ball game with a bag of nuts? Probably too long if you're wearing conventional dentures.
What's the secret? It's the flexible resin coating on the outer layer of the denture base. This flexibility allows the denture to lock in around the undercut of the jaw bone for superior stability. Flexible dentures are so light and thin you'll hardly feel like you're wearing them.
Flexible dentures are cosmetically pleasing too. The denture base has a transparent pink shading which allows your natural gum color to show through for an absolutely great blend. And you can still choose the style and shade of teeth you'd like to go with them.
And the benefits don't stop there. The flexible resin material is non-porous, so it won't support the growth of bacteria. That means no more denture breath! But even though it's non-porous, the denture will still retain a slight amount of moisture to keep it comfortable against your gums.
Now let's talk about durability. Flexible denture bases are basically unbreakable, unlike standard acrylic bases that can crack if you drop them in the sink during cleaning. No such worries with flexible resin dentures. And even though flexible resin denture bases are more expensive than their close cousins, the soft denture, they make up for it by lasting far longer.
Want more good news? Let's talk fitting. Standard acrylic denture bases require multiple stages to fit and manufacture. Once the wax bite try-in is refined for a perfect fit, it's sent back to the lab where the traditional heat curing of the acrylic base often shrinks the final product, leading to the need for further adjustment to the denture base. With flexible resin dentures, the try-in used during the trial fitting can actually be used in the final denture, shortening the entire process, so you get your dentures faster.
Flexible dentures may just be the denture the world has been waiting for, so what are you waiting for? The sooner you have your new dentures, the sooner you have the freedom to eat what you really want. Go ahead...bite into that juicy red apple. With flexible dentures, you can!
