A flipper temporary tooth replacement can be made in just one or two hours. Many patients receive their flipper the same day it was ordered.
A flipper is a removeable partial denture used to replace one or more that have been lost. Once a dental impression of the patient is made, its is sent to a lab, where the acrylic tooth is made into a flipper.
The acylic flippers are the least expensive of the partial dentures and may be used temporarily or long-term. Candidates with at least two teeth on either side of the upper or lower bridge may be fitted, according to Massachussetts dentist Marvin Spiller.
