Factors That Impact Denture Cost

If you or a loved one needs dentures, you’re almost certainly thinking about the financial aspect. And why shouldn’t you be? Dentures are an investment that will positively impact the life of the wearer for years to come. While we obviously can’t tell you exactly how much your new dentures are going to cost without a consultation, we can tell you some factors that may impact the cost, so you have an idea of what you will need.

Complexity

Of course, the most basic indicator of how much your dentures will cost is how complex the dentures will need to be to allow you full functionality of your teeth again. Are you missing just a few teeth (partial) or a whole row (complete)? Will other teeth need to be extracted to make room for the dentures? Obviously, the less complex your denture needs, the less expensive they will be.

Implant Support

If you do end up needing a complete set of dentures, you will have the option of having them “implant supported”. Implant supported dentures look the same as regular dentures, but offer more stability, and eliminate the need for adhesive. If you choose implant-supported dentures, your dentist will install metal implants into your gums which will help fix the dentures into place. Implant supported dentures tend to have a high rate of satisfaction because of how low-maintenance they are, but because of the more involved installation procedure, they tend to be more expensive than a standard set.

Expediency

Any denture procedure is going to take time, as your new custom smile has to be fabricated from scratch to fit your mouth perfectly. However, sometimes the process can be expedited for a slightly higher cost, so if this is of interest to you, be sure to ask your dentist if this is a service that you’re eligible for.

Of course, these are just guidelines, and the best way to determine exactly how much your new dentures will cost is to schedule an appointment with your dentist! We’ll be happy to walk you through every step of the procedure while answering any questions that come up!
