Temporary Teeth “Flipper”

If you are missing teeth or having a tooth removed you will be given an appliance for use during healing.

  • Leave it in tonight (unless otherwise instructed). Tomorrow morning, remove it, rinse it thoroughly, and place it back in your mouth. It not only replaces teeth it acts as a bandage and helps keep swelling down.
  • Wear the appliance for the first 3 days. You may remove it in the morning and then after meals to clean. Use a large toothbrush to clean it.
  • After 2 weeks, remove the appliance at night to allow the tissue to breathe.

On some occasions it is necessary to see your general dentist the day after surgery for adjustment and a comfort lining. If this is necessary for you, Dr. Wunderlich and Chang will let you know in advance
