What are Dental Flippers?
Dental flippers are a type of removable partial denture consisting of a retainer-like appliance with one or more prosthetic teeth. They are commonly used to replace missing front teeth and may have clasps to hold them in place around your existing teeth.
Ideal for Children and Adults:
Dental sealants are commonly recommended for children as soon as their permanent molars emerge, typically between ages 6 and 12. However, adults who are at a higher risk of developing tooth decay can also benefit from this preventive treatment. The application process is swift and straightforward, and sealants can be conveniently applied during your regular dental appointment. Our dentist will expertly coat the chewing surfaces of your teeth with the sealant material, which will quickly dry on its own or be cured with a special light.
Benefits of Dental Flippers:
- Improved appearance by replacing missing teeth.
- Quick preparation, so you don’t have to be without teeth.
- Enhanced ability to chew and speak.
- Prevents remaining teeth from shifting out of place.
- Easy to insert and remove.
- Can be made quickly (often in one or two days).
- Very affordable compared to other restorative options.
- Cleaning and Maintenance
Dental flippers are typically made of acrylic and should be cleaned nightly. You can scrub the appliance gently with water or toothpaste and soak it overnight with an antifungal or antibacterial denture tablet. During your regular appointments, our dentist will check your flipper to ensure a proper fit and functionality.
