Every Valplast Partial is guaranteed against fracture of the base material assuming normal use. The Guarantee is valid indefinitely from the date the appliance is placed in service as a clinical dental prosthesis.

We strongly recommend that you immerse every new partial Valplast Denture in hot water, prior to its initial insertion. It should be immersed for a minute or two in very hot water. Once removed from the water, allow the surface to cool to the point where the patient will tolerate it easily. The heat exposure will assure a very smooth initial insertion, often relieving any irritation the patient may feel the first time a partial is inserted.
We will provide you with a Green Mounted Stone and rubber wheel for chair side adjustments. These stones are to run at a VERY SLOW SPEED! Once adjustments have been made you will need to rubber wheel trimmed area.This will restore the original polished smoothness. The rubber wheel can also be use for minor delicate reduction or relieving.
If a clasp needs to be made looser or tighter, adjustment may be made by immersing the section of the partial in very hot water for a minute. As soon as it is removed from the water, the clasp can be bent inward (to tighten), or outward (to loosen). Immediately insert the partial in the patient’s mouth, and allow it to conform for a short while before making further adjustments (if needed).
In general, adjustments should be done delicately. The patient may need some time to become accustomed to the palate or lingual plate. Normally the partial will be much more comfortable for the patient than a metal and acrylic combination, because the base is much thinner than acrylic and the entire partial is much lighter.
