Valplast Flexible Partials

Intelligent Smile Restoration

Valplast is one of the most cosmetic, comfortable and affordable methods of tooth replacement available today. Since 1953 millions of people have discovered the exceptional benefits that Valplast can bring to their appearance and confidence, providing them with something that they can truly smile about.

The VALPLAST Smile
What if there were a way to replace missing teeth that didn’t involve any expensive surgical procedures? What if there were an affordable method of tooth replacement that didn’t sacrifice aesthetics? What if there existed a partial denture that could actually blend in with your natural dentition so that it appeared invisible in your mouth?

With the introduction of Valplast, nobody has to know that you are missing teeth. For more than five decades Valplast® flexible partials have been the preferred choice of patients looking for a method of tooth replacement that is aesthetic, comfortable and affordable. Valplast® partials cost less than dental implants and dental bridges and they require no surgery or invasive procedures. Compared to traditional metal partial dentures, Valplast® offers better aesthetics, comfort and durability. In fact, Valplast® partials are made from an unbreakable nylon resin and each Valplast® restoration comes with a lifetime guarantee against breakage and fracture.

It was long thought that removable partial dentures had to be rigid to be effective. The innovation of the Valplast® Flexible Partial allows the restoration to adapt to the constant movement and flexibility in your mouth. This is the underlying thinking behind Valplast’s innovative flexible, removable partial denture. The flexibility, combined with strength and light weight, provides total comfort and great looks!

Valplast® partials are custom-fabricated in a dental laboratory. They are a prescription only product and your dentist can help you decide if they’re right for you. The preparation is relatively simple because your natural teeth don’t need to be altered in any way. The Valplast® partial is virtually invisible because there are no telltale metal clasps, and the material itself blends with the tissue in your mouth so that the only thing that shows is your beautiful smile.

When considering a removable partial, many people find the Valplast® Flexible Partial to be the most comfortable option, and the final restoration can be made very quickly! While the cost may be higher than a partial made with visible metal clasps, the results of the flexible partial are beautiful, and patient satisfaction is very high. The Valplast® Flexible Partial involves only non-invasive procedures, and gives you confidence in your restoration while talking, eating and most importantly, smiling!

Frequently Ask Questions

Will Valplast break under stress?

The Valplast® resin is guaranteed never to break under normal wear and tear for the lifetime of the appliance. This warranty covers the Valplast® resin (pink, nylon material) that is used to make the denture, but not the teeth that are embedded in it. If you feel that your partial may be broken, please contact your dentist first to see how they can assist you. Even in instances where a warranty repair is necessary, your dentist will need to speak to a Valplast representative to find out how we can help to repair or replace the partial. *Please note that Valplast International Corp. does not manufacture artificial teeth or custom made Valplast appliances, which are fabricated in a dental laboratory. This warranty only covers breakage and fracture of the Valplast® resin, and not artificial teeth.

Can I have a tooth added to my Valplast?

Yes you can! Your dentist will have to send the partial to a Certified Valplast® Laboratory to have the tooth or teeth added to it, and you may have to go without your partial for a few days. The partial will come back to you looking brand new, with the new addition hardly visible! Please have your dentist contact us if they need to find a Valplast® laboratory that is capable of providing this service. Sometimes it may be better to have a new denture fabricated than to modify your existing one. Speak to your dentist about which procedure will be suitable for you.

Is Valplast suitable for people with allergies to common dental materials?

Patients that suffer allergic reactions to common dental materials have been using Valplast® restorations for more than fifty years with excellent results. Valplast® is a thermoplastic nylon material which contains no acrylic monomer and a completely metal free coloring agent, making it an excellent choice for patients who suffer allergic reactions to acrylic and metal dental materials. No cadmium or harmful metals are used in Valplast flexible dental resin. Please have your dentist or allergist contact us if you would like us to send them a sample chip of Valplast® resin for testing.

Can Valplast be used for full dentures?

In most situations Valplast is reserved only for partial dentures. Full dentures do require some degree of rigidity in order to stay in place in the mouth and the flexibility of Valplast may not be suitable for the application of a full denture. However, there are some situations where Valplast may be well suited to a full denture application, including patients whom are allergic to denture acrylics, patients that are prone to breaking their acrylic dentures, patients whom can not wear a rigid full denture due to the shape of their mouth, or patients who have dental implants for the purpose of retaining a complete denture. Speak to your dentist about the possibility of wearing a full denture if you have had difficulty wearing a rigid acrylic denture in the past.

How can I register my Valplast appliance?

Valplast appliances that were prescribed after October 1st, 2009 should come with a Valplast Certificate of Authenticity. This certificate contains a unique 25 digit serial number that can be used to register your denture online or by calling (800) 843-2861. Valplast appliances that were prescribed prior to October 2009 do not require registration. Additional information is available on the Register Online portion of Valplast website.

How do I care for my Valplast partial dentures?

You’ll be glad to know that most patients become immediately accustomed to their delicate and light-weight Valplast® restoration. However, you may experience a brief adjustment period, especially if you have never worn a dental appliance before. Should you experience any persistent irritation, please consult your dentist so that he or she can make necessary adjustments to your appliance.

Valplast® restorations, like your own teeth, require care and good oral hygiene. To keep your Valplast® restoration looking and feeling like new, please follow these simple directions:

* Clean your Valplast appliance regularly. Val-Clean® Concentrated Denture Cleaner will safely, quickly, and effectively maintain the cleanliness of Valplast® partials as well as other removable dental appliances. Val-Clean® is available directly from Valplast Support Services, and can be ordered by calling (888) 325-3260 or visiting www.valclean.com.

* Soak your Valplast® appliance in Val-Clean® for 10-15 minutes a day, or overnight at least three times a week.

* Loose particles can be removed with the use of a sonic denture cleaner, or by placing the appliance under running water. Brushing a Valplast® appliance regularly is not recommended as this may remove the polish and roughen the surface over time. A soft brush (without toothpaste) may be used occasionally to remove any build-up or particles that have developed on your dental appliance.

* If possible, rinse your Valplast® dental appliance after eating to remove any food particles.

* Keep the partial in water or in denture cleaner whenever it is not being worn to keep the surface hydrated.

* Remember to brush your natural teeth and gums regularly as directed by your dentist.

Additional Tips for the Care of Your Valplast Appliance

* Cleanse the Valplast® appliance daily and keep it in water or your cleaner whenever it is not being worn.

* Store brands of denture cleaner are not recommended for cleaning a Valplast® appliance, as they are not effective and may contain ingredients that can damage the Valplast® or its color.

* Toothpaste and toothbrushes may scratch or dull the surface of your Valplast® appliance. Be sure to remove your Valplast® restoration whenever you brush your natural teeth.

* Please keep the appliance out of reach from pets. Dogs and other pets find dental appliances to be attractive chew toys.

* Valplast® appliances are very durable and are designed to give long term performance under normal usage. Please note that the Valplast® base material will resist fracture or breakage better than the synthetic teeth that are embedded in it. Small accidents such as dropping the appliance in the sink or on the floor will not damage the Valplast®, but may cause the teeth to fracture. Please handle the appliance with care.

* Contact your dentist if you experience any discomfort from your dental restoration or if you ever have any abnormality with your natural teeth or gums

Where can I buy Val-Clean Denture Cleaner?

Val-Clean® is available exclusively from Valplast Supply Services, Inc. through their toll-free number and website,www.valclean.com. Simply call (888) 325-3250 and their friendly staff will be pleased to take your order. For customers outside of the United States a list of international distributors can be found at www.valclean.com. Val-Clean® is not available in stores at this time.

Will other denture cleaners work with Valplast?

Any other brand of denture cleaner is not recommended for cleaning a Valplast® appliance, as they are not as effective as Val-Clean® and may contain ingredients that could damage the Valplast® or its color.

I thought having my teeth cleaned was supposed to hurt. Turns out I was just getting bad service. Today I had my teeth cleaned Emily at Feather Sound Smiles. She was awesome, and may be the only person I ever let stick a pointed instrument in my mouth again. Dr. Amir is pretty cool too.

I have had a lot of dental work done over the years and always dread going to the dentist. This was the best dental visit I have ever had. Every staff member was professional and extremely friendly. They took their time, explained things thoroughly and answered all of my questions. Sarah is an amazing hygienist, Diana who did my initial x-rays was great, Lynda at the front desk was very helpful especially in setting up my initial appointment and answering questions about the practice. I can't say enough about Dr. Daoud . He is so friendly and easy to talk to. He answered my questions and eased a lot of my fears. I have definitely found my new dental home and I don't think I will ever dread another visit to the dentist. Thank you all for making my first visit so pleasant.

These guys are amazing! Today was my first time going there and I got my exam, cleaning, fillings and invisiline scanning all in one. The cherry on top was Dr. Daoud putting on the world cup game as I was getting cavities filled. I didnt miss a second. I used to dread going to the dentists, but everyone there truly makes me want to go back every month. I might just go back tomorrow to watch the next game with him!

We have been going to FeatherSound for about 2 years. My son is almost done with the teen Invisalign and my daughter has had many fillings and caps. They are always honest, professional and caring. I don’t feel the wait has ever been unreasonable. Their prices are less than our previous dentist in Palm Harbor, let’s face it dental work is not cheap. My husband is having implants with Feathersound now, I will update this after he is done. We are very happy with FeatherSound.

Amazing dentist office. Dentist Amir is smart, funny and kind. In fact everyone there is extremely kind, from the front desk to Sarah the dental hygienist to everyone I've met there, but not like overly nice kind. More of a genuine kind attitude you don't find very often. You can tell they actually care about you/your teeth there and they don't push work you don't need. Equipment there is top notch and staff is extremely experienced. Keep up the fantastic work.

I love it here! Best dentist in the Bay area.I had a really bad experience with my previous dentist, which made my jaw issues 10X worse. Fast Forward 2 years, after 1 appointment with Feather Sound Smiles, I not only have beautiful clean teeth but my jaw pain is completely gone! I can't believe it. They taught me how to relax my jaw and not clench all day long. Highly recommended. In & out of a cleaning, under 30 minutes.

Highly Recommend! This place is clean, friendly, professional, and punctual! I interacted with Alex, Dr. Amir, and Sarah. Had genuine conversations with me, gentle with the cleaning process, and spoke about my concerns in depth. Any questions or concerns you may have, this place can guide you towards the right direction. It was my first visit at this dentist office and I will make it my only dentist practice. They don't rush you out, they make you feel comfortable. Great staffing. If you're looking for a professional dentists office, come here.

Being new to the area Feather Sound Smiles was recommended to me. My first visit went smoothly and I couldn’t say enough good things about Dr. Daoud and his staff. They were super nice, friendly and very professional. They have the latest technology on site and my root canal took only a couple of hours from start to finish. I walked out with my permanent crown in place. Phenomenal job!

Absolutely love this dental team! Was totally afraid of going to the dentist after multiple horrid experiences (drilling through tooth, left a particle under a filling, numbed my mouth, allergic reaction). But alas, teeth need to be cared for. Been coming to this office since 2011, absolutely love the team, especially Sarah! She is always so thorough and helpful. I especially like how they don't try to "sell" me anything new and provide me with a tooth care/maintenance plan to help my teeth get healthier between visits. Recommend them to all my friends and family!

Excellent experience on my first visit today.! Dr. Daoud was very knowledgeable, personable and up front about my dental needs. Every person I encountered was extremely friendly, warm, welcoming and knowledgeable. I have had an astounding number of dental/orthodontic treatments in my life and this was by far one of my best experiences all around.

I can't say enough nice things about Dr. Daoud and his dentistry practice. He and his his staff are excellent, always friendly and extremely professional. His practice epitomizes the next generation in general and cosmetic dentistry. His technology is far superior to any other dentist I've experienced. More impressive is his care and attention to each patient. That's why our entire family has switched and are now patients. I feel comfortable saying he's the best dentist in the Tampa Bay area.

We just moved back to the area and our son recommended Dr. Daoud. For those of you that actually read these...I too had a filling drilled out and refilled. After an accident in the early 70's, I've had copious amounts of dental work completed. Old work sometimes, has to be replaced and with the technology today, the filling replaced yesterday will probably be outlast the car I bought last year and cost a lot less. Lynda greeted me with an early morning smile, Alex led me through the procedures and assisted Dr. Daoud with my filling, and Sara made my cleaning, irrigation, fluoride treatment a dream. Thank you for my first appointment being so comfortable and professional!

Great Dentist! Dr Daoud did a procedure to remove two teeth and place dental implants. He took the time and fully explained each step of the process. Very knowledgeable and I feel I received the best and most advanced care available for dental implants. He did a great job and I am very happy with the procedure and everyone in the office was very professional, friendly and did a great job.

This practice truly stands out among all of the places I have been. From exceptional hygienists who go the extra mile to make sure your experience is a good one, to Dr. Dauod taking the time to explain the treatment options that are best for you. It is has been evident on numerous occasions that his advice to me had my best interest at heart. I have had bad experiences with other practices in the past who have tried to put their bottom line first, so it is refreshing to have finally found an establishment that I can truly trust. Thank you for everything!
