If you are looking to invest in a great flexible partial denture, Nesbit is a great option when you have only 1 tooth to replace. The Valplast Nesbit or the Unilateral Partial is the best option if you want a cost-effective long-term solution for a missing tooth.

We at Dental Lab Direct understand the various problems you might face while wearing dentures. You might be hesitant because you’ve heard they’re uncomfortable. This is precisely why we recommend that you invest in a Nesbit dental appliance. They are easy to use and a great way to fix your dental problems. They are also extremely small and comfortable which makes them barely noticeable.

What is a Nesbit Dental Appliance?

A Nesbit dental appliance, also known as a Nesbit flipper or Nesbit denture, is a type of removable partial denture used to replace one or more missing teeth, particularly in the front of your mouth. 

Unlike traditional partial dentures that rely on clasps or attachments for stability, the Nesbit appliance is typically retained in place by simple friction and pressure against adjacent teeth or tissue. It consists of a prosthetic tooth or teeth attached to a plastic or acrylic plate that rests on the gums. The Nesbit appliance is often considered a temporary solution or a cosmetic option for individuals who are not candidates for dental implants or fixed bridges.

You will not regret buying them, but before we tell you the price and the product specifications, here is a list of advantages of using Partial Dentures:

1. Nesbit Dental Appliances Improve Your Appearance and Self-Confidence

With great teeth comes great confidence. We have observed that many patients with dental problems have a hard time speaking and socializing as they are afraid of others mocking them. These dentures will help you with that.

2. They Help With Your Speech

A Nesbit dental appliance can make a great positive impact on your speech. This is because certain sounds like V and F are made only when the bottom lip contacts the edges of the central upper incisors. So if you replace your missing teeth improving speech and helping you make certain sounds easily.

3. They Enable Better Chewing

While not typically designed for extensive chewing like traditional dentures or dental implants, can still enable better chewing compared to living without teeth or with gaps. They provide a prosthetic tooth or teeth attached to a plate that rests on the gums, allowing individuals to regain some ability to chew softer foods and to better break down food particles for easier swallowing.

4. Prevent Teeth From Moving

Nesbit dental appliances can help prevent teeth from shifting by filling the gap left by missing teeth. When teeth are missing, neighboring teeth may gradually shift or tilt into the empty space, leading to misalignment or bite problems. By providing a prosthetic tooth or teeth that occupy the space, they stabilize the surrounding teeth and help maintain their position. 

This prevents adjacent teeth from drifting out of place and preserves the natural alignment of the dental arch.

5. Protect Against Future Tooth Loss

These dentures make sure that you do not lose any other teeth than you already have and also protect your teeth from further damage. They reduce the likelihood of problems with other teeth by taking pressure off them. In fact, wearing them will also reduce the risk of facial changes that may occur due to dental problems as they will help support your muscles, cheeks, and lips.
