When you have a tooth removed or damaged, you can use a flipper teeth kit to fill in the gap until your permanent replacement is ready. This is a good option for patients who are not candidates for fixed partial dentures or implants, and are on a budget.
Can I get dentures from home?
Easily Customized & Made – Your dentist can take an impression of your teeth, and a lab can make a flippers teeth kits to match them. They are also easy to clean and maintain.
Natural looking – Your flipper will fit in between your existing teeth and look as natural as possible.
Removable – You can remove the flipper to chew, brush, or floss your teeth.
Comfortable – Your flipper is more comfortable than many other removable dentures because it does not connect to your gums with metal.
Loose – Over time, the grip that your flipper has on your existing teeth can loosen. You may need to ask your dentist to adjust the fit of your flipper.
Pain or pressure – If you feel any pain or pressure while wearing your flipper, your jaw could be putting too much pressure on the acrylic material that makes up your dentures. If this happens, it’s best to discontinue use and consult with your dentist for a solution.
A flipper is an affordable temporary prosthetic that will allow you to eat and smile without fear. However, if you are looking for a long-term solution, dental implants or a fixed bridge might be a better option.
