Removable Partial Dentures
Are you missing front teeth? Are you wondering how to quickly restore your smile? Dr. Christian Berdy and Dr. Cary Berdy have been helping Jacksonville patients restore their smiles through removable partial dentures, also known as dental flippers. Please review the information below to learn more about dental flippers, then call Berdy Dental Group at 904-389-1376 to schedule your consultation today.
Dental flippers are a type of removable partial denture, and consist of a retainer-like appliance with one or more prosthetic teeth. Dental flippers are typically used to replace missing front teeth, and may have clasps to hold them in place around your existing teeth. Flipper dentures are usually used as temporary teeth replacements prior to receiving a dental implant or other restorative treatment. However, some patients choose to wear dental flippers indefinitely as they are lightweight, easy to wear and relatively inexpensive. Some benefits of dental flippers include:
- Improved appearance (replacing your missing tooth or teeth)
- Enhanced ability to chew and speak
- Pre-preparation in advance of anticipated tooth loss, so you do not ever need to be without teeth
- Prevention of shifting of remaining teeth
- Easy to insert and remove
- Easy to make – flippers can often be created in one to two days
Berdy Dental Group will educate you on how to clean your flippers and when you visit our dentists for your regular appointments, we’ll check the appliance to ensure that it fits properly and is continuing to function correctly. Please call our office at 904-389-1376 if you have questions about dental flippers or to make a consultation appointment with one of our dentists. We look forward to helping you regain your beautiful smile.
