clear partial with one false tooth

what do you call the temporary clear plastic device that fits over your teeth and contains one fake tooth to fill in the space of a missing front tooth?

No, sorry. But someone here by the name of Thelma Louise seems to know a lot . Ask her??????? I thought it would just be a "hook on tooth" not a partial that fits over other teeth?

Re: clear partial with one false tooth

I have a missing front tooth #9. What I have as a temporary is called a flipper. I guess it's plastic. It was made to fit into my the roof of my mouth and the tooth fits in the gap. It's a pain in the butt to wear. You have to get use to talking with it in. At least it's only temporary.

The item I am talking about looks like the invisalign braces. It has a tooth where your missing tooth would be. This device has to be removed when you eat. It's only for esthetics

Re: clear partial with one false tooth

why are you wanting that? Wouldn' t you be better off with something that you can use while you eat?
