I don't find the answer acceptable. I would like the reference source for the answer given. I certainly don't consider this question EASY. The descriptions I found for stayplate are: Plastic plate with teeth and clasps (usually temporary). Stayplate (flipper): An acrylic partial, with or without wire clasps, that replaces one or more teeth usually temporary in nature.

Prótesis parcial de acrílico


Explanation:
una Stayplate (o Flipper, en slang) sería una prótesis parcial de acrílico. Éstas se consideran temporarias, por una cuestión de adaptación de los tejidos.

Es, como dice tu frase, una prótesis (ya sea superior o inferior) parcial... ellos (estadounidenses) no le agregan el "de acrilico"... por una cuestion que ya tiene nombre propio... pero es eso
