Removable dentures

Presentation

Deflex dentures offer thermo-injectable materials with different balances of flexibility and stiffness that allow for multiple applications for removable dentures.

The polymers are highly resistant; contain elastic memory, minimal liquid absorption and very low shrinkage levels.

They are known as flexible dentures because the first materials that were used to make this type of dentures were very flexible in the beginning, and that was a way of distinguishing them from conventional materials, such as acrylic and cobalt chromium. Nevertheless, Deflex has opted for the term “injected dentures” or “aesthetic dentures”, especially for the achieved aesthetics in partial dentures due to the absence of metallic retainers.

Deflex dentures are metal-free.

Qualities comparison with conventional acrylic dentures

 

  • Aesthetical pleasing: Translucent inconspicuous retainers in partial dentures
  • Lightweight: Optimal retentiveness. Reduced thickness. Improvedphonetics.
  • Biocompatible No metal. Hypo-allergenic.
  • Resistant Highly resistant to blows and falls
  • Functional Flexibility ensures better preservation of support teeth

Applications

MAIN APPLICATIONS

  • Partial dentures
  • Full dentures
  • Partials combined with chromium

PARTIAL DENTURES

Aesthetic and functional

The powerful market entry of these dentures is driven by great public acceptance, and supported by the outstanding aesthetics achieved in the mouth. This was an unresolved issue in the removable rehabilitations field.

The absence of metal and the natural color of materials have a positive psychological impact on the patient, accompanied by greater and faster denture acceptance.

Besides their excellent aesthetical qualities, dentures manufactured with Deflex materials achieve a much more favorable functionality as compared to acrylic dentures. With the appropriate design and thickness, Deflex dentures offer a fine balance between flexibility and stiffness.

Flexibility ensures:

  • Giving way before stress, avoiding leveraging
  • Comfort and easy adaptation
  • Adequate retention properties

Stiffness ensures:

  • Sharing loads, avoiding tissue damage and retraction
  • Occlusal rests, preventing dentures from being intruded
  • Freedom of design

FULL DENTURES

More resistant, lighter and hypo-allergenic

Why make a full denture with a Deflex thermo-injectable material?

Deflex thermoplastics offer the following advantages in comparison with conventional acrylic:

  • They are monomer-free
  • They have greater resistance, providing reduced thickness, lighter dentures, and a very low fracture rate
  • They show very low volume shrinkage

DENTURES COMBINED WITH CHROMIUM

Deflex aesthetics Chromium functionality

When make an injected denture combined with chromium?

When the dental professional prefers the well-known functionality of cobalt-chromium, but at the same time prioritizing the patient’s aesthetic appearance, by substituting translucent clasps that go unnoticed in the mouth for metal clasps.
