Before and after photos on orthodontic space maintenance for dental implants performed in our NYC dental implants office.
A flipper is frequently used while dental implants heal but instead we offer fixed temporary crowns
A removable Flipper is shown in these pictures. Some dentists offer them as a permanent option for tooth replacement. Other dentists may offer them as a short term tooth replacement for cosmetic reasons and/or for space maintenance while a dental implant heals. At The Center for Special Dentistry we prefer to use a fixed provisional temporary teeth bridge that is NOT removable while dental implants heal. It is more work for us but patients prefer it much more.
