How Much Do Dentures Cost?

If you are having some or all of your teeth extracted, or if your teeth have begun to fall out, you may be considering replacement options. For severe loss of teeth, the best (and sometimes the only) option may be dentures. To decide whether or not you would like dentures, it’s good to understand what dentures are, and the cost of dentures.

What Dentures Are

Dentures are teeth replacement appliances that are constructed to look very similar to real teeth. Dentures can be made to look much like a patient’s original teeth, and are very customizable.

There are two different types of dentures, and which a dentist decides to go with will depend on the needs of the specific patient. These dentures are full and partial dentures.

Full Dentures

Full dentures are what many people think of when they hear the word “dentures.” Full dentures are intended to replace a patients teeth in full, and are held in place with the patient’s gums. These dentures are best for patients that have no other option but extraction, or have already seen their natural teeth fall out.

Partial Dentures

Another option for dentures is partial dentures. For patients that have lost a significant portion of their teeth that is too much for a bridge or traditional implant to support, partial dentures are often the best option. These dentures are attached to the healthy, surrounding teeth and are secured in place.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Another option that is available to some patients are implant-supported dentures. These dentures are held in place by titanium rods. They are often much more expensive due to the procedure involved for placement, and the materials used.

The Cost of Dentures

When patients are considering dentures, one of the biggest concerns they have is the cost of dentures. The cost of dentures can be quite high, and there are different factors that determine the cost of dentures. Some of these factors include:

  • The materials being used.
  • The location of the dentist.
  • Insurance.
  • Whether the replacement involves implants.

Additional Costs

The cost of dentures often doesn’t just include the dentures themselves. Patients will often need to have teeth extracted to place the full or partial dentures. This adds to the cost of dentures, as does any sort of treatment to the gums or the healthy teeth that will remain after the procedure.

Speak with Your Dentist

In order to better understand the cost of dentures and whether dentures are right for you, speak with your dentist. They will be able to walk you through which solutions are right for your needs and your budget.
