You must have at least 10 existing teeth on both your upper arch and your lower arch to order this product and cannot be missing all your back teeth (molars) on your upper and/or lower arch(s).
The reason that we require that our customers have at least 10 existing teeth on their upper arch and 10 existing teeth on their lower arch is in order to make a Partial Denture or a Dental Flipper, the lab must know how your teeth match up when you bite all the way down. They must know how your upper and lower teeth match up when you bite all the way down because this is how they determine where to place the replacement teeth so that when you bite all the way down the replacement teeth are placed in the exact position to be functional but not in the way. When you have less than 10 teeth on your upper and 10 teeth on your lower it becomes too difficult for the lab to know how your upper and lower teeth match up when you do bite all the way down.
A Dental Flipper is a hard acrylic plate with fake teeth attached to it for filling spaces where you have missing teeth. It will last up to 3 years, but just like the Temporary Bridge you must take it out to eat because the acrylic is breakable under pressure. If you are wanting a teeth device that you can eat in, then you need to order our Flexible Partial Denture. When you order our Dental Flipper, you will receive our teeth impression kit(s) within 2-3 days. After you create your impression(s) and send them back to us in our prepaid mailer, it takes 10-12 days to manufacture your product (the same time as if you had gone to a dentist). These are the same high-quality products that are made by laboratories that dentists use, for close to half the cost.
A Dental Flipper can be worn 24 hours a day, but you must take it out while you are eating. To insert or remove this teeth device, use both hands, and push on or pull off evenly with your thumb and index finger. It may take several days for your tongue to get used to the device and then your speech will return to normal.
To clean the Dental Flipper simply brush it with toothpaste and water after each use. You can use effervescent tablets as needed for deep cleaning.
