Discover metal-free partial dentures: Ultaire® AKP

Which RPD would you prefer? Metal or Ultaire® AKP?

If you need partial dentures, you owe it to yourself to learn about Ultaire® AKP, a premium alternative to metal partial dentures:

Ultaire® AKP metal-free partial dentures

  • Comfortable, biocompatible
  • Lightweight – 60% lighter than metal
  • Aesthetically pleasing with no metal clasps
  • Non-corrosive, non-toxic and non-irritating
  • No metallic taste

With metal partial denture frames, you may experience:

  • Metallic taste in mouth
  • Visible metal – seen while smiling or speaking
  • Metal sensitivity
  • Discomfort from weight of metal frame
  • Damage to remaining teeth

It’s time to discover metal-free partial dentures! While there are other metal-free partial dentures out there, called flexibles, they tend to be flimsy and lack support. Ultaire® AKP is a different option, a high-performance polymer that is designed specifically as a metal replacement for partial dentures — with the strength and durability required to give you a comfortable and functional partial denture.

Your health, your smile

You always have a choice when it comes to your health. If you are missing teeth and wondering what your options are, talk to your dentist about Ultaire® AKP removable partial dentures. Metal partials can be uncomfortable and can wreak havoc on the oral environment. Plus, who wants metal ruining their smile? The shiny metal clasps can be distracting and have been known to cause damage to remaining teeth, and possibly further tooth loss. Now you have another option: Ultaire® AKP.

Ultaire® AKP: comfortable and lightweight

If you’ve had a metal RPD, you know how cumbersome and heavy they can be. Dentists often see them damage remaining teeth and injure the inside of the mouth. Ultaire® AKP partial dentures are 60% lighter than metal frames! The polymer was formulated to be lightweight as well as strong, similar to polymers used in hip implants. This creates partial dentures that are comfortable, durable and biocompatible, meaning they are safe to have in your body. Unlike metal, Ultaire® AKP is non-toxic, non-irritating and nickel-free.

Aesthetically pleasing, metal-free

Ultaire® AKP partial dentures are more aesthetically pleasing than those made of metal. The material is tooth coloured, so the clasps will blend in with your existing teeth. No more metal clasps ruining your smile! And no more metallic taste in your mouth, affecting the taste of the foods you love to eat.

Customised to you

Removable partial dentures made with Ultaire® AKP are digitally designed to provide a custom fit that requires minimal adjustments. This means less visits to the dentist to adjust the fit of your partial denture. You can be confident in the feel and functionality, knowing that this comfortable and custom designed frame was made just for you.
