Typical dental flipper cost is around $300-$500 per tooth depending on the number of teeth being replaced and what materials are used.
What are flipper teeth?
A flipper is a removable partial denture made of acrylic that resembles your gums and helps support the replacement tooth/teeth while waiting for your permanent replacement. It is a great option for those with missing front teeth until they can get implants.
Your dentist will make an impression of your mouth and send it to the lab where a custom-made flipper can be created for you. Your new flipper will look like your natural teeth and be made from a dental-grade acrylic resin.
You can wear a flipper partial denture without any problems as long as you are careful to keep it clean and remove any food particles that may be trapped in the device. This helps to protect your other teeth and gums, and reduces the risk of oral health issues such as gum disease or tooth decay.
If you aren’t sure how to care for your flipper partial denture, talk to your dentist and they can help you with the process. Regular maintenance and checkups with your dentist will ensure that you are getting the best care possible for your device and your other teeth and gums.
It’s also important to talk with your dentist if you notice any pain or pressure on any area of the device when you are wearing it. This is a sign that your denture needs to be adjusted and that it is not fitting properly.
