Dental Flippers

Dental Flippers

Dental flippers are removable partial dentures designed to temporarily fill gaps in your smile. These custom-made appliances consist of a prosthetic tooth or teeth attached to an acrylic base that rests against your gums. Dental flippers serve as a quick and cost-effective solution while waiting for a permanent restoration or during the healing process after tooth extraction. Their flexibility and ease of use make them a popular choice for those seeking a temporary fix, providing both aesthetic enhancement and functional support. Although not as durable as permanent solutions, dental flippers offer a convenient way to maintain confidence in your smile as you navigate through the stages of dental treatment.

  • How long do dental flippers last?

    Dental flippers are intended for short-term use. With proper care, they can last several months to a few years, but they are not as durable as permanent dental restorations.

  • Can I eat and speak normally with dental flippers?

    Eating and speaking might require a brief adjustment period. Initially, softer foods are recommended, and speaking might feel different until you become accustomed to wearing the flipper.

  • Can anyone get dental flippers?

    Dental flippers are suitable for individuals missing one or more teeth, but their use depends on various factors. A consultation with a dentist will determine if they are the right temporary solution for your situation.
