A Bit About Dental Flippers for Children and Adults

Are you wondering about flippers for your teeth? Flippers are temporary dentures for a single tooth. These temporary teeth are a good choice for someone who is in transition. They are often used as an interim replacement option for those having a dental bridge or a dental implant done. They easily fit into place and you can remove them as needed.

 Benefits of Dental Flippers

Instead of walking around with a missing tooth, the dental flipper sits in the gap and helps you avoid showing the world a toothless grin. Most flippers aren’t used for eating and are intended to be used just temporarily as they aren’t a great long term solution. They aren’t ideal long term for spacing and gum health reasons but can be an excellent low cost temporary interim replacement for a missing tooth.

 Dental Flippers for Children

Do you have a child whose teeth have been damaged in some way? Dental flippers are a great solution for children who have misshapen or damaged teeth. A flipper can easily be placed while they wait for a permanent tooth to grow in or until they are old enough to seek out a more permanent solution. Flippers are also an option to consider if you have an up and coming child star who wants to conceal their missing teeth for an audition or pageant.
