Flexible denture advantages [Flexite VS Valplast]
The new generation of flexible dentures brought so many new improvements to make dentures more comfortable and natural.
Super flexible nylon was invented in the United States in 1954, after 10 years of research.
The old generation of dentures are too hard and less flexible, they put much pressure on your teeth and damage your gum tissue, and the hideous metal hooks make them aesthetically inacceptable .
The new flexible dentures are lighter, flexible and almost unbreakable. The hooks are totally invisible, with a large color choice that is more natural and durable. The allergic reaction that was found in the old acrylic resin dentures disappears with the nylon based new generation of dentures.

Feedback and opinion about flexible dentures:
i made so many flexible dentures and neither me nor my patients have ever had any problems with it, except for the fact that Flexite and Valplast partial problem is that they are hard to be polished and impossible to in relining, but this is a very small disadvantage.
Our patients were very satisfied with the results even after a long time, which is why i decided to present to you this new generation of dentures.
