Where can I buy a flipper kit for an adult?
By D Moe
What do you mean by a flipper kit. There are flipper kits for teeth, and there are flipper kits for costumes with feet flippers, and probably several more meanings for flipper kits. Which one do you mean?
Can some one tell me where to buy a 'flipper', you know the false teeth for little girls in pageants? if so please let me know because I have searched the internet and found nothing.
You have to get it from a dentist.
Yes, a dentist - it has to be fitted to the mouth that is going to be wearing it.
Unity smile. They will mail you the kit to do the impression and then you mail it back to them. It takes about a week.
I have a gap that is horrible. Where in England can I purchase flipper teeth?
Hiya! I'm in Scotland but have several friends down in England.
In England, like all of the UK, the only purchase points for flippers is your dentist, he/she is the best (read only) place to get these 'stay-plate' appliances.
If you are on NHS dentistry you may still be able to get the device even though it's only to close a gap (and not for health reasons which is the only way NHS will cover the cost) - you'll have to pay the fees yourself, usually before the appliance is fitted.
When you telephone or call in to make an appointment be sure to tell the desk clerk at least three times that you understand NHS will not pay for this appliance and you are going to pay for it yourself. I've heard of NHS England and Wales being charged for these plates and then making collections calls to retrieve their money because the clerk forgot to note the chart the patient was paying.
My friend paid around £250 for a stay-plate with over seven flippers but that included the cost of extracting 4 really wonky teeth, too, for cosmetic purposes. The cost also covered some dental sculpting of remaining teeth. Now she has the smile that we think God had in mind when she was born:) She looks lovely and thinks that was a well-spent £250!
If you need to cover a small gap, the cost will likely be considerably less.
You can go to Imako.net and get a set for about $40.00.
I am looking for a dentist in Las Vegas with integrity and honesty. I have severe dental problems and need two-four teeth acrylic flipper at 76 yrs of age. Any suggestions?
The University of Nevada has a dental clinic. Their number is 702-774-7108. You could go there if it's convenient.

My dentist fixed the gap between my two front teeth. It took about 10 minutes. He did not charge me. It is still there after 20 years.
I have two chipped teeth in the front top. Can I still get flippers?
Yes absolutely. I did with chipped and a missing tooth. I bought mine at imoko.com for aroung $40.00.
I remember reading here some time ago, about things you could wear over your teeth, called flippers I think. I lost the link to order them and was wondering if anyone still had it?
