Flipper Tooth Quickly

Updated on April 14, 2013

Patients may turn to flipper teeth to fill the gap caused by lost teeth. The flipper tooth quickly hides the gap from a missing tooth, so the person is able to go to work or other places in public without feeling self-conscious about missing teeth. Most tooth replacement solutions take several dentist appointments, but a flipper tooth quickly and economically provides a fast but temporary solution.

Flipper teeth are an inexpensive version of partial dentures. While traditional partial dentures are made of porcelain composite materials with a metal frame, flippers usually are made completely of a type of plastic. This makes flippers less expensive but also less durable than traditional partial dentures.

One of the struggles with using dentures is getting used to them. Many people get frustrated with dentures and stop using them. Flipper teeth often are easier to get used to, because they are flexible plastic. This flexibility can make this type of denture more comfortable than rigid dentures. Flipper teeth are sometimes called flexible dentures.

If the person feels self-conscious about missing teeth, it can affect their self-image and confidence. Flipper teeth often can be made in a matter of hours or days. Because flippers can be made rather quickly, they can be a way to prevent the public from seeing the person with missing teeth.

Many times, people need time to save money for a permanent tooth replacement method. Traditional dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants may cost the patient hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Even if the patient has dental insurance, few dental insurance policies cover the entire costs of any tooth replacements.

A flipper tooth has a distinct advantage of being cheap. Some people will use a flipper tooth while saving money for a more permanent solution to tooth loss. Another cheap alternative is to use a molding kit to make a false tooth. These molding kits are sold on the Internet. However, these fake tooth kits can be difficult to use to make a tooth that fits securely in the mouth. Also, the fake teeth from a kit do not usually look natural.

Flipper teeth are an ideal choice for parents who need a tooth replacement for their children. If a teenager or younger child loses a permanent tooth, dentists may suggest flipper teeth. Permanent tooth replacements like dental bridges are not an option for children and adolescents, because they can interfere with jaw growth. A dental flipper is cheap to replace if the child breaks or loses it. In early adulthood, a permanent tooth replacement can be utilized.
