What is a Flexible Denture?

Flexible Dentures are a kind of partial denture, made up of a softer material than regular dentures.

These dentures are made of a thin thermoplastic material such as nylon than thicker more rigid acrylic used in full dentures.

 Benefits of Flexible Denture:

  • Flexible Dentures are more comfortable
  • Soft and inherent flexibility
  • Will not warp or become brittle
  • Less bulky and lighter in weight
  • Better chewing efficiency
  • Better aesthetic: They are translucent, so it allows natural gum to show through, making it visible.

How do I clean Flexible Dentures?

Keep the Flexible Denture in denture cleanser tablet solution, then brush them to remove the debris and finally rinse them under running water to remove any remaining denture cleansing solution.
