Acrylic Denture vs. Flexible Denture

Posted on 4/1/2024 by Weo Admin
Acrylic dentures are better than flexible dentures. They cost less, can accommodate future changes, and are easier to fix and remove. Flexi dentures, however, are more appealing and stable. How Do Acrylic Dentures and Flexible Dentures Differ The main difference between acrylic and flexi dentures is the base material. Acrylic dentures are the common traditional dentures that are made of composite plastic. Acrylic, also known as plexiglass, is a transparent, sturdy, and easy-to-fabricate material. Acrylic is a good material for dentures, especially when the dentures require changes in the future. Flexible dentures are made of thermoplastic resins. These materials are biocompatible, meaning they carry no risk of allergic reactions. Another notable feature of the materials used to make flexible dentures is that they are lighter and resistant to stain and odor. Which Is Better: Acrylic or Flexible Dentures? Choosing between acrylic and flexible dentures can be tough. Each type of denture packs pros and cons. Pricing Cost is an important consideration when it comes to dentures. Acrylic dentures cost less than flexible dentures due to the superior material used in the latter. [[[H3:Future Changes]]Acrylic is moldable and can be easily relined in case gums shrink. Thus, acrylic dentures are the ideal choice for immediate dentures that will be removed after some time. Valplast, the most common material in flexible dentures, cannot be added to or molded, making relining flexible dentures very difficult. Ease of Fixing and Removing Acrylic dentures are easier to put in and remove than flexible dentures. They have little grip derived from contact with the area they cover, so they are less stable and easily move around. However, acrylic dentures are relatively easy to remove and clean. On the other hand, flexible dentures rely on flexible gum clasps, which offer a very tight fit and more stability. These dentures are quite difficult to remove, especially for people with some musculoskeletal disorders. Appearance Acrylic dentures are built to be bulky and bigger since they need to cover a bigger area to attain grip. This lowers the overall appeal of these dentures. Flexible dentures, on the other hand, are thinner and blend better with gums for a more aesthetic look. Closing Remarks Contact your dentist for more information on acrylic and flexible dentures. The doctor will assess your situation and help you make a choice....
