Flexible Dentures

Flexible Dentures

Flexible dentures provide a solution for patients who can't or don't want to use regular dentures. The most obvious advantage is that they aren't brittle, so they're less likely to shatter if they're dropped. The British Association of Clinical Dental Technology lists some more benefits:

  • They cling to the gums and don't require denture adhesive or metal clasps to hold them in place.
  • The material is clear and allows the natural gum color to show through.
  • They don't take as long to manufacture as regular dentures.

A review published in the IOSR Journal of Dental and Medical Sciences mentions more advantages of these specialized dentures. Comfort is a major benefit, and patients often find chewing easier than when wearing regular dentures. Some patients are allergic to acrylic resin, nickel or other materials in traditional dentures, and some have difficulty opening their mouths wide. For these patients, the flexible variety may be the only type they can wear.
