With time the tooth may become more brittle and prone to fracture, so it is often better to restore the tooth with a crown to provide extra support and strength to the tooth.

Replacing lost or missing teeth has substantial benefits for your health and appearance. A complete or full denture replaces the natural teeth and provides support for cheeks and lips. Without this support, sagging facial muscles can make a person appear older and reduce their ability to eat and speak.

A denture is an appliance which is worn to replace lost or missing teeth to enable you to enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence. A complete or full denture is one that replaces all of the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws. A partial denture fills in the spaces created by lost or missing teeth and is attached to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments.

The base of a denture is called a plate and can be made of either acrylic (plastic) or metal. The teeth are normally made of acrylic and can be made to match your natural teeth. This is especially important in the case of partial dentures.

One or Two Tooth Appliance

Valplast® is a great, non-invasive, alternative to a fixed appliance, for example a dental bridge. It can also be considered as a discreet temporary during the healing process immediately after a dental implant has been placed.

You may also be interested to know that the plastic used in Valplast was first developed over five decades ago, and has been used in professional dentistry since 1954. Valplast is in the nylon family, stronger and more flexible than the acrylic used in other kinds of dentures and partials.
