A so-called flipper tooth can be an affordable option for those with missing teeth that need a quick way to fill the gap. These teeth are provided by your dentist and have both some benefits and some issues you should know about before you make the decision. To help you know both the good and bad points of a flipper, read on.
What Is a Flipper Tooth?
These teeth are meant to appear like a natural tooth but can be removed for cleaning. They are usually made of inexpensive acrylic, but they can be shaded to blend in with your natural teeth, and most people won't notice any obvious differences in a flipper and a natural tooth. They usually consist of the front tooth area with an upper that fits in the back made of pink material that mimics your natural gums. This gum plate is custom made to fit flush against your gums for comfort and appearances. Flippers can be used anywhere, but many people use them to hide missing front teeth that would be the most visible to others.

Hi, my name is Kevin Nelson and I want to tell you about my experience. I had a painful tooth so I went to see my dentist. After the examination, he said that I needed to have a root canal to save the tooth. I told the dentist to just pull the tooth instead and then he explained why that wasn't a good idea. He said that pulling the tooth would cause additional problems and then he told me what could happen. I didn't want any more problems, so the dentist did the root canal and I'm glad that he did. I wanted to write a blog to tell others about the benefits of a root canal and what to expect during the procedure. I hope that by getting the word out, other people won't make the same mistake that I almost did by getting a perfectly good tooth pulled.
