An Ultaire® AKP denture is a metal free, light weighted and an extremely biocompatible, that are setting a trend of the most comfortable denture to date. These newly designed dentures are non-corrosive, non-toxic and non-irritating with no metallic taste creating the dentures to be aesthetically pleasing. The dentures are right in between metal RPDs and flexible RPDs designed specifically to enhance the rigidity of the polymer to be supportive and to have a very long lifetime. But also, to have some flexibility and elasticity to be able to improve the patient comfort and overall experience.
Ultaire® AKP is bone-like in its properties and 60% lighter than metal. It’s not a flexible, but rather a paradigm-shifting polymer. Key product benefits:
- Strong enough to be tooth-supported
- May help minimize bone loss
- Minimal fitting sessions and adjustments

Can I Add Another Tooth As I Would With A Metal Frame?
It may be possible to add a tooth to the framework if there is an opportunity to get mechanical retention from the frame where the tooth is being added.
Ultaire® AKP dentures are produced by a lab that use high end technology that can provide fully digital RPDs and provide an optimal, aesthetically pleasing function.
