Facts About Affordable Quality Dentures

dca-blog_dentures-mature-woman-apple

It would be wonderful if cost did not come into play when it comes to determining the right dentures to buy, but for many people, that is simply not the case. Cost is a major factor for countless individuals who need to purchase partial or full sets of dentures. For that reason, it is worth learning the facts about affordable quality dentures that will provide the quality patients seek.

An affordable set of dentures can offer real value for those willing to do their homework. Quality dentures that come at an affordable price really can be made to a high standard by a reputable professional. By contrast, dentures that are merely cheap are likely of poor quality and lack the custom fit that is so important to oral health and comfort. Choosing bargain dentures can ultimately result in greater expense and inconvenience over the longer term and is something that should be avoided.

The key to securing affordable quality dentures that are truly high quality lies in having a good understanding of what is really needed. Some of the fundamental factors to consider include things such as whether the dentures are for a first-time wearer or are meant to be replacements, whether surgical tooth extraction will be required, whether partials or a full set will be needed, and what sort of denture material is preferred. The answers to such questions will largely determine the final cost of the dentures needed.

It should come as no surprise that full dentures are costlier than partial ones. However, it is true that certain partials call for precise measurements to ensure that they blend well with existing teeth. In such cases, the cost for partials can actually exceed that of a complete set of dentures.

Dentures are fabricated in a range of materials, some of which are more comfortable and more expensive than others. Acrylic products tend to be more affordable and more widely used than soft dentures, which are more flexible.

A fixed denture, also referred to as a denture implant, requires oral surgery and is therefore much more expensive than dentures that can be removed. When numerous rods need to be implanted into the jaw, the expense involved escalates further.

First-time denture wearers may need to consult with an oral surgeon who is able to extract existing teeth, as well as with another professional skilled in the fitting of dentures. This can be far more expensive than simply obtaining dentures from a cosmetic or general dentist.

The bottom line is that affordable quality dentures really are available, but the true cost will depend on a number of factors specific to each patient. Those who lack dental insurance or who anticipate difficulty in paying for much-needed dentures should not hesitate to inquire about available payment plans and alternative financing.
