DuraFlex Flexible Restorations
DURAFLEX - ALL THE BENEFITS - NONE OF THE DRAWBACKS
Why DuraFlex™ is so Good
DuraFlex™ from Myerson is a breakthrough thermoplastic that resolves the limitations found in older flexible materials that are nylon based, whilst still offering all the advantages of a flexible denture.
The advanced thermoplastic used to make DuraFlex™ has a semi-crystalline polymer structure, making it both strong and hygienic. It is clinically unbreakable and more durable than acrylic. Myerson’s internal research has shown that this state-of-the-art thermoplastic material is unusually resistant to water absorption, making it less prone than nylon to absorbing stains or odours.
DuraFlex™ also offers highly desirable aesthetics, with a veined appearance in four gingival colours as well as clear. The material is translucent, allowing the natural colouring of the underlying tissue to show through, giving it a virtually invisible appearance.
Alterations, Additions & Repairs
The revolutionary characteristics of DuraFlex™ means we are able to rebase, repair, and even add teeth to DuraFlex™ flexible dentures using the same material. This means the altered denture is still flexible and any adjustment is permanent.
Working with DuraFlex™
We have now made the move completely to Myerson’s DuraFlex™ for all of our flexible dentures. The material has proven to be excellent providing good flexibility, aesthetics, adaptability and, even in this short period, impressive wear characteristics.
Already we have added teeth to one of the first DuraFlex™ dentures we made. Unlike many other systems, such as Valplast and Flexite, we added the tooth in the same material so we had a perfect match and the altered denture was still completely flexible. This means the alteration was a permanent solution, rather than a temporary one done in a different material. Impressively, unlike other popular materials, the denture looked exactly the same as the day we made it, no scratches, discolouration etc., despite being worn for a few months.
If you would like more information or would like to try a more ‘flexible’ solution please let us know.
Currently we are the only UK laboratory on Myerson’s list of Authorized Duraflex Labs.
