Flexident Algarve the premier denture provider for Flexible Dentures
Flexident Algarve initially offered its clients the choice of flexible dentures in January 2005. Previously, partial dentures had to have metal clips or clasps to keep them in place. Also occasionally metal palates were used for clients with a history of fractures or breaks in the palate area.
So popular was the demand for flexite dentures that within 1 month I switched solely to Flexite injection system. We now have clients with Flexite dentures from Sagres to Vila Real Santo António, Lisbon, Porto, U.K and Ireland, Jersey, Spain, France, Germany and Holland. All through word of mouth recommendation.
The unique material is gum coloured, flexible, unbreakable and invisible in the mouth.Offering maximum fit,without the need to use glues for retention. Flexite is also made as thin as possible in the palate area. It is also completely unbreakable. Maximum retention,minimal palatal coverage, flexible, light, non-absorbent,allergy free. 1 tooth to a full set of teeth.
founder of Flexident Algarve
Alan Gale has been making dentures for over 35 years and has a wealth of experience in England, Portugal and Spain, where he gained his licence to exclusively provide flexible dentures, in the Algarve.
To dispel any misconceptions, Alan Gale explains the process of making a flexible denture in a simplified format:
Firstly, details are discussed as to the specific needs or changes to the current denture.These could be due to ill fitting, incorrect shade, function, lip support, etc.The clinician then takes upper and lower impressions of the mouth.These are cast in a pourable stone material.
The stone model is then studied, and a design is drawn on the model, replicating the shape of the denture. Undercuts and rests are located, which help in the superb fit of the denture.
Then wax blocks, in the shape of the appliance, are made on the models. The clinician uses these to determine the correct bite, the relationship between the upper and lower jaw.Light cured trays are also constructed, using the initial models. Second impressions, are taken, using these trays.
These impressions are cast in a very hard stone material. It is on these models that the finished appliance is made.
The shape and colour of teeth, is accurately chosen.The hard stone models, with the wax blocks seated in place, are then mounted on an apparatus called an articulator. A wax try- in is then made, using the teeth individually crafted in the wax pattern and the design, shape, chosen. Missing gum work is also replaced in wax. Artistic skills and a keen eye are needed here. Lip support restored, greatly improves appearance and smile.The wax try-in, is then returned to the clinician.This procedure mimics the finished denture, but in wax.
The denture wearer, and clinician being satisfied with appearance and bite, give the all clear to proceed to the final finish, and insertion of the flexible denture, usually between seven and 10 days.
