Valplast

valplast-logoValplast is a flexible denture base resin that is ideal for partial dentures. The resin is a biocompatible nylon thermoplastic with unique physical and esthetic properties. Valplast allows your patient’s natural tissue tone to appear through the material, matching the basic shade categories (standard pink, light pink and meharry). Valplast provides a fully functional and esthetically superior removable partial. Practically invisible, Valplast is ideal for cases when your patient desires an esthetically pleasing, lightweight restoration. In addition, Valplast may be used whenever the patient is considering a removable partial denture. The material can be used for all partials, unilateral removable replacements, and one tooth flippers.

When a Valplast partial requires a reline, it is usually jumped to a new base (rebase). To have us add a tooth, reline, or rebase the partial, please follow the following steps.

  • A wash impression is taken inside the partial using light body PVS material. Be sure to use a light coating of adhesive inside the partial.
  • Before you insert the partial into the mouth for the wash impression, inject a small amount of impression material around the buccal of the teeth that are clasped. This will ensure that the undercut areas are captured
  • When the wash impression is made, the patient closes his/her mouth gently to ensure the partial if fully seated and the occlusion is accurate, as the PVS material is setting.
  • Once the PVS material has set, an impression is taken inside a tray and the impression is removed from the mouth with the partial and the wash material reline in place.
  • Carefully examine the partial to assure that it is positioned correctly and did not unseat when the pick up impression was made.
  • Send the pick up impression with wash reline inside the partial to us for rebase or reline.
  • If you use alginate material for the pick up impression of the partial and PVS wash/reline impression, then you must pour the impression before sending it to us.
