DPS offers both Duraflex and Valplast flexible partials. Both are excellent replacements for patients who are not interested in having metal appliances. They have a more comfortable fit, are lighter in the mouth, and are easier to eat with than traditional metal partials. One of the many benefits of DuraFlex and Valplast is that little to no tooth preparation is needed.
Flexible partials can solve many difficult treatment problems for periodontally involved teeth, sensitive teeth, cancerous mouth, or other conditions in which the teeth are compromised or comfort is problematic.

Duraflex is an advanced thermoplastic that is clinically unbreakable, easy to adjust and even easier to polish. Duraflex partials are also unusually resistant to water absorption, making them less likely to absorb stains or odors.
Valplast is made of a biocompatible nylon thermoplastic with unique physical and esthetic properties. The Valplast injection process provides ideal adaptation to both hard and soft tissues.
