Flexible Dentures

Apart from the conventional rigid acrylic dentures in practice, flexible, nylon-based dentures can look realistic, stay securely in place and be more comfortable to wear. Instead of metal clasps, they have thin finger-like extensions that fit or snap into natural concavities in the crowns of the teeth near the gum line. The flexible removable partial denture also provides an option for cosmetic improvement of adjacent teeth that appear elongated due to gum recession: The realistic-looking, gum-colored base can be made to cover areas where natural gum tissue has receded (shrunk down) and partially exposed tooth roots so that flexible RPDs provide a smile improvement and offer an instant aesthetic solution.
