Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Dentures may be right for you if:

  • You have lost all or most of your teeth. If you have lost just one or two teeth, a different treatment may be right for you.
  • You are struggling with the consequences of tooth loss. For example, you may find it difficult to eat your favorite foods and smile with confidence.
  • Your gums are healthy. You should be free of active gum disease.

Types of Dentures

There are a few different types of dentures. During your consultation, we will evaluate your oral health and recommend the type of prosthetic that best fits your circumstances, goals, and preferences. You might be an ideal candidate for partial dentures, full dentures, or implant dentures.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures fit in around the remaining natural teeth, sort of like a puzzle piece. Typically, they consist of an acrylic gum-colored base, acrylic teeth, and small metal or acrylic clips that help them to stay in place during eating and speaking.

Full Dentures

Full dentures replace an entire arch of missing teeth. They usually have an acrylic base, along with acrylic or porcelain teeth. Natural suction or a mild adhesive helps them to stay in place. They are always custom-designed to work with a patient’s unique oral structures and facial features.

Implant Dentures

Implant dentures do not rely on suction or adhesive to stay in place. Rather, they are secured in the mouth by prosthetic tooth roots (dental implants), which get surgically placed into the jawbone. Implant dentures are incredibly strong and reliable. We often recommend them as the best option for qualified patients.

The Benefits of Dentures

Dentures offer many outstanding benefits. Here are just a few of the most noteworthy:

  • We carefully design dentures so they look as natural as possible. Plus, dentures can prevent your cheeks from having a hollow appearance.
  • Improved chewing power. Patients with dentures are able to eat a wide variety of foods. With implant dentures, you may be able to enjoy virtually any meal or snack.
  • Cost-effective. Traditional dentures are one of the most affordable ways to replace missing teeth.
  • Easy maintenance. Caring well for your dentures requires a thorough oral hygiene routine and other simple steps.

Understanding the Cost of Dentures

The cost of dentures depends on a few factors. When you come in for your consultation, we will provide a customized price estimate. Dentures are affordable for most patients, especially when they utilize insurance and financing. Our team will walk you through the monetary aspect of your treatment so you do not run into any unpleasant surprises.

Factors that Affect the Cost of Dentures

Some factors that can influence the cost of dentures include:

  • Some patients require gum disease therapy, extractions, or other treatments before they can move forward with dentures.
  • The specific types of acrylic and/or porcelain that are used to construct your dentures can influence their price. Dr. Daaboul always strives to use top-quality materials.
  • The type of denture. Partial, full, and implant dentures all come at different price points.

Be very wary of any deals for “cheap” dentures. Remember, you get what you pay for, and you should only have high-quality prosthetics in your smile!

Are Implant Dentures More Expensive?

Yes, implant dentures have a higher upfront cost than traditional dentures. That is due to the extra time, effort, and skill that are required to design and place implant dentures. Are they worth the additional money? Yes. Here are a few reasons why:

  • Implant dentures last longer than traditional ones, so they may actually cost less over the long-term.
  • Dental implants preserve the jawbone, whereas traditional dentures do nothing for bone health.
  • Implant dentures can restore a strong bite that can handle virtually any food — even more so than traditional dentures.
  • Implant dentures do not slip and slide around in the mouth.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Dentures?

In most cases, dental insurance classifies dentures as a major procedure, meaning that around 50% of the cost of your care may be covered, up to the amount of your annual maximum. Our team accepts most PPO insurance plans, and we are always happy to help patients navigate their benefits. Simply give us your policy information so we can verify your coverage and file all necessary paperwork on your behalf.

Other Options for Making Dentures Affordable

If you do not have insurance, or your insurance will only cover a small portion of the cost of your care, you may be eligible for low-interest financing. We accept CareCredit, a third-party company that provides affordable payment plans for dental services. The application process is fast, and most patients are quickly approved for credit. You may even be able to choose your monthly payment amount.
