A dental flipper looks very much like a denture, and it is most often used to provide a temporary fix to lost teeth. Dental flippers are a great option because it takes anywhere from six weeks to 6 months for the gums and bones of the mouth to heal before they can be worked on to affix a partial or implant. A dental flipper may be a full set of top or bottom teeth, or just have the one missing tooth on it, so that it fits snugly like a retainer, but fills in the space left vacant by the missing tooth.
