Thin, Clinically Unbreakable Flexible Partials That Look Beautiful

You and your patients will love DuraFlex, Valplast and tcs flexible partials. Each thermoplastic appliance is indicated for use as a removable full or partial denture in place of traditional acrylic. Valplast and tcs can also be used for saddles or clasps on cast-metal partials, giving clinicians an esthetic option to shiny metal clasps.

These thermoplastic materials are thin, comfortable, virtually unbreakable, and look amazing. Our flexible partials disappear inside into the patient’s natural tissues and dentition. Plus, they are resistant to moisture absorption, making them less likely to stain or retain odors.

Clinical Tips

One of the attractive aspects of thermoplastic partials is they can be constructed from two good impressions or models, an accurate bite relationship and desired shade. A good alginate impression is ideal for full and partial denture cases. Irreversible hydrocolloid is still the best material to take moist tissue impressions due to the hydrophilic (attracted to water) nature of this material. Polyvinyl siloxane and polyether impressions are also acceptable impressions for thermoplastics. As with nearly all impression techniques, the use of a custom tray is highly recommended.
