getting answers about teeth in a day procedures

Have you been putting off getting teeth extracted because you did not want to have to walk around without any teeth? I put the procedure off for three years before finally learning about the availability of teeth in a day procedures at local dentistry practices. Even after learning about the procedures I was still unsure if it was for me. I did not know if I would be a good candidate, if I could afford it, and exactly how it would work. I have compiled all of the information that I gathered to help others learn about this wonderful process.

Is A Flipper The Best Way To Temporarily Fix Your Missing Front Tooth?

When a front tooth is lost due to an accident or decay, it may take some time to decide on the method used for a permanent repair solution. Until then, a flipper can be used to fix it. A flipper is essentially a temporary denture that will fill the visible gap until your permanent solution is ready.

A Flipper Will Diminish Potential Bone Loss

When you lose a tooth, it may take several months until your gums have healed enough for an implant to be inserted. During that time, your underlying jawbone can start to deteriorate, and even change the overall shape of the jawbone. It will create a problem where a false tooth that is being created will not fit properly when you are ready for it.

Using a flipper until your gums have healed will prevent jawbone deterioration from occurring. The teeth that surround the teeth will not shift either, helping keep everything in place.

A Flipper Can Improve Your Speech

If you lost a front tooth, it will greatly affect your speech by not having a place for your tongue to rest against when making specific sounds. For an adult, this may be a source of embarrassment. For a child that unexpectedly lost a baby tooth, they might start to compensate for their missing tooth, causing them to have problems adjusting back when their adult tooth finally grows in. Using a flipper will cause speech to return to normal, giving you much needed confidence while talking.

A Flipper Can Improve Your Confidence

Not only does a flipper help improve confidence while talking, but it will cause you to feel less self-conscious about your appearance. For those that have jobs with a lot of face-to-face interaction or public speaking, a missing tooth can cause you to feel uncomfortable. A flipper will prevent embarrassment during daily conversations with co-workers and customers.  

A Flipper Is Easy To Make

Creating a flipper is very easy for your dentist to do. If you have scheduled to have a tooth removed, a flipper can even be created prior to the tooth removal procedure. This means you can leave the dentist's office the same day with a working flipper. If you need a flipper created due to losing a tooth from trauma, the turn around time will be much faster than any permanent solution, with it possibly being ready the same day.

For more information about flippers, schedule a consultation with your dentist.
