Is it possible to get a dental flipper placed on a bottom tooth?

Yes, it is possible to get a dental flipper placed on a bottom tooth. Bear in mind that these are not very sturdy. It consists of a false tooth attached to a plastic plate that snaps in with some wires. These are generally used as a temporary replacement while you get a permanent fix arranged. My suggestion would be to get a dental implant as your permanent tooth replacement. They are much sturdier and will protect you from bone loss at the extraction site.
