Why Flexibility Rather Than Rigidity? – An Introduction to Valpast Flexible, Removable Partial Dentures and their Application

Presentation Topics to Be Covered –

  •  General introduction to Valplast® Flexible Partials,
  • The background of how/why Flexible Partial dentures came into being,
  • Understanding the theory and forces exerted by more traditional, ridged partial dentures and there limitations and why the Valplast® flexible partial denture material overcomes these.
  • Clinical Technique, Overview/Introduction, Impressions, Try-In, Fitting a Valplast® flexible partial denture and Adjusting a flexible partial denture.

This presentation aims to provide Dental Practices opportunities to be exposed to different dental materials to the more traditional ones that they may have been use to. The aim is to open up alternative possibilities and options for their patients. There will also be a question and answer discussion.
