Acetal Resin/Thermoflex Flexible Removable Partial Dentures
Made from a hypo-allergenic polyacetal resin, Zirlux Acetal partials literally disappear in the patient’s mouth. And, as an added bonus, it is a reversible procedure. If the patient’s health or financial situation changes, the possibility of an alternative, more permanent treatment option in the future can become a reality. Acetal can also be used as an excellent transitional restoration during healing for implant cases.
What is special about Zirlux Acetal? Zirlux Acetal partials have tooth-colored clasps that provide secure retention and disappear when the partial is inserted. No other partial offers this option or has this ability. This feature allows an Acetal partial to “shine” by being invisible when other partials aren’t. The resin material is available in VITA shades A1, A2, A3.5, B1, plus G2 (bleaching shade), and P1 (pink). These color choices allow for a wide range of color-matching options that work well with various tooth configurations.
The real benefits of Zirlux Acetal are the resin’s properties that provide both strength and semi-flexibility to the finished dental appliance. It is milled precisely for a comfortable fit, has excellent retention, and requires minimal adjustments. Since monomer is not used in its fabrication, the non-allergenic base minimizes tissue reactions and irritation. The elastic memory of Zirlux Acetal allows the clasps to cling deeply into the tooth’s undercut. Combine that with 3D CAD/CAM technology used to design the framework and clasp placement and you have an esthetic partial with clasps that blend and engage seamlessly with the abutment teeth.
Stomadent’s price point for Zirlux Acetal starts at $207 for the framework only. Additional services are available for a nominal fee. Please see our Removable Fee Schedule for specific details.
