These helpful appliances can improve your appearance, ability to speak, and ease of chewing. Dentures are removable and are used to replace or cover missing or damaged teeth in your mouth. They have the added benefits of keeping any of your remaining teeth in place and preventing your face from sagging.
Dentures can either replace all or some of your teeth (full or partial) and are constructed from porcelain, acrylic resin, metal, plastic, or a combination therein. Those made from plastic (typically partials) are called flexible dentures, thanks to their bendable quality.
Flexible dentures are most commonly made from thermoplastics like nylon, according to Spear Education. This use of advanced materials allows this variety of dentures to boast different qualities than conventional dentures.
