Sunflex partial dentures

False Teeth - Sunflex Partial Dentures  February 13, 2013 – 08:39 am

sunflex-partial-denturesIn comparison to acrylic partials, Sunflex® partial dentures are lightweight, more comfortable and practically invisible, with no metal clasps. They offer the perfect degree of flexibility, are more stain-resistant and do not discolor, warp or become brittle. They are also the easiest partials to adjust in-office, and teeth and clasps can be added at a later time without demarcation lines.

With Sunflex® you can create partial dentures that match a patient’s natural tissue tone (shade categories include Light Pink, Pink, Medium Meharry and Dark Meharry). They can be combined with a cast metal partial framework for enhanced stability.

...and similar materials are vinyl-based denture materials. To my knowledge they are not used for crowns and fixed bridges--and would be far too soft to use for this purpose.
The rationale for Valplast is that clasp-like extensions of the denture base can be made to snap over the teeth. They can be pink (to match the gum) or white (to match the teeth). What you gain compared to traditional acrylic-based dentures is that you don't use metal clasps in a cosmetically critical area.
You do however sacrifice some stability when compared to partial dentures with cast metal frames

I'm midway through implants process

I had three implants inserted in January. Dentist and specialist jointly determined (by x-ray) that there was enough remaining bone to take the implants. (I hope they're right!) I've seen the dentist for checks on three occasions thus far and he tells me they look fine. They'll take more x-rays late May to see if there's been sufficient growth of bone over and around the implants (i.e., "ossification") and if so, will proceed to the creation of crowns and/or a fixed bridge; I'm still not sure what we're talking about there.
Right now I'm dealing with a partial denture (which I hate) to keep teeth from spreading out any more than they already have
