Cosmetic Flipper Alternative - Troy Michigan
Traditional flipper prosthetics do a great job as a cosmetic treatment... and can be quite useful when additional treatments are being planned for the future... which might include implant replacement of the missing tooth or even bridgework.
In terms of dental function, most dentists agree that flippers aren't really designed to eat with. Some folks may remove the flipper while eating... others may alter their food choices, say during lunch hour, so the flipper doesn't require removal that might cause embarrassment.
Flippers and Future Treatments
In the case of extractions or trauma, some degree of bone grafting or socket grafting may be in order. In the situation where a disease process is involved, other treatments may be indicated.
FrictionFlipper prosthetics typically rest on gum tissue and have a mass of acryclic substructure that attaches, in very creative ways, to adjacent tooth structures.
Depending on the design and complexity of the flipper prosthesis, lifestyle characteristics and eating habits of patients, prolonged use may cause wear and tear on gum tissue. Bone loss (resorption) can also be expected to occur (due to no stimulation) in and around the affected sites.
Missing tooth sites that are undergoing bone or soft tissue graft healing will be especially sensitive to the treatment of choice for addressing a cosmetic issue.
Clear Retainer - False Teeth Combo Solution
Retainers are designed to rest on tooth structures and in most cases, the entire arch of teeth. Prosthetic teeth are combined with the retainer, filling in the areas of missing teeth.
Normal biting forces are distributed across the entire arch, creating a definite, beneficial effect for tooth sites that are healing from routine surgery, tissue augmentation or bone grafting.
The "retainer-style-prosthesis" overcomes the possible friction factors associated with traditional flippers, is comfortable to wear and produces a pleasing cosmetic appearance.
