Referring in detail to the drawing, the numeral 'i indicates a case especially designed to accomdental plates and conincludes a bottom Wall '4 and upstanding side walls 5 arranged in parallelism and a curved end Wall 6 and a straight end wall 1. e The straight end 1 are connected by a hinge 8 land one of theicurved end walls of oney of the sections has a spring catch 9 thereon yto engage With a keeper IB on the curved end wall` the curved end walls of said which may be positioned dental plates. The

keep'false teeth and the dicated by the character l2. lments Il may be coveredwith lThis lining maybe of a material capable of being l Washed to keep the device in tion.

With these and other objectsin View, this in-` vention consists in certain novely features of con-Ay Y and arrangementof parts f. more fullyv described and and l3. Each section therein substantially sections forming inl Y the latter. substantially U-shaped seats, A inv a ,sections from each @then curved end wallsv of the sections of the case thereplates against excessive The inner Walls of the a suitable-lining, in- Also the enlargea suitable'lining.
