Removable Dentures

Acrylic Dentures

Primarily supported by the mouth’s soft tissues, these dentures create suction for stability during
eating. While they don’t harm existing teeth and offer easy additions of teeth later, they require
extended coverage in the mouth for optimal suction.es
• Easy to add teeth later
• Natural appearance
• Minimally damaging to existing teeth
• Larger and thicker
• More prone to fracturing
• Can be difficult to tolerate and adjust to wearing

Valplast Flexible Dentures

Flexible dentures achieve suction by locking between teeth. Their thin sections are strong, resulting
in a lighter, smaller, and more flexible denture. However, adding teeth later is not possible, and good
gum health is crucial.
• Lightweight
• Thin and flexible
• Very strong
• Difficult to repair dentures or add teeth

Cobalt Chrome Dentures

With support from existing teeth, these dentures use a metal material for maximum strength in
minimal thickness. They are the smallest and thinnest possible dentures, ensuring stability without
movement. However, they are heavier than acrylic, require healthy teeth for support, and are more
challenging to modify.
• Smallest and thinnest denture
• Minimal movement and retain in the mouth very well
• Very strong
• Comfortable
• Heavier than acrylic
• Require healthy teeth for support
• More difficult to modify
