It isn’t always easy to go through life when you’re missing a few teeth.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Dr. Murph can use dentures to treat patients who are missing a single tooth, a few teeth, or an entire arch. The process begins with a consultation, during which our team will thoroughly inspect your mouth to evaluate your needs. If you have any issues like tooth decay or gum disease, we will work with you to resolve them so you can be a suitable candidate for dentures.

Types of Dentures

Dentures come in several lifelike and comfortable varieties so they can meet the specific needs of different people. They consist of acrylic bases and ceramic or porcelain artificial teeth that are indistinguishable from the natural tissues and structures of your mouth. Different types of dentures include:

Partial Dentures

If you’re missing a few teeth, a partial denture can fill in the empty spaces in your smile so you can enjoy a complete grin and chew comfortably. Partial dentures are designed to clip onto your remaining natural teeth, allowing them to stay in place when you are speaking or eating. They’re also conveniently removable for easy cleaning.

Full Dentures

Full dentures?

For patients who are missing a full arch of teeth, our team can provide full dentures so they can enjoy a complete smile again. A well-fitting set of full dentures can hold its place in your mouth using natural suction, denture adhesive, or a combination of both. They’re also easy to remove, making cleaning them a breeze.

Implant Dentures

Implant dentures?

If you want to enjoy a complete smile that can easily chew anything you like, implant dentures may be for you. These dentures hold themselves in place using four dental implants surgically placed in your jaw, providing the sturdiest foundation available for your restored smile. This creates the most lifelike restoration dentures can give a patient.

The Benefits of Dentures

Understanding the Cost of Dentures

Your financial situation should never stand in the way of treating your lost teeth. There's no flat fee for dentures because every mouth is as unique as fingerprints. Therefore, there's no one-size-fits-all solution. Many things can affect the amount you'll pay, but we have the financial option you need to replace your missing teeth with high-quality dentures.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Dentures

Your dentist will examine your mouth and may perform other diagnostic services to ensure you're a candidate for dentures and to create your personalized treatment plan. The amount you'll pay will be influenced by:

  • Preparatory Treatments: It's not uncommon to need a little prep work before getting dentures, like tooth extractions or gum disease therapy. Additional treatments will be factored into the cost.
  • Materials: You'll get what you pay for when choosing materials for your dentures. Discounted materials may cost less, but you may pay more in terms of aesthetics, comfort, and quality. We will help you choose the best materials to ensure your dentures fit snuggly, last for many years, and look realistic.
  • Type of Denture: Depending on the number of teeth you're missing and your preferences, you have many types of dentures to choose from, including traditional full dentures or an implant-supported solution.

Are Implant Dentures More Expensive?

You may pay more initially for implant dentures, but they are the most cost-effective overall because they should never need to be replaced. Traditional dentures last for 5-7 years. Dental implants have over a 95% success rate and a lifespan of 30 years or more. Not to mention, they are the only treatment to stop bone loss in your jaw to maintain your facial shape and improve your oral health. You can't put a price on the benefits you'll gain by choosing implant dentures.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Dentures?

Your dental insurance may cover some of the expenses for your consultation and diagnostic services. After meeting your annual deductible, your benefits may include some of the costs for medically necessary treatments, including preparatory procedures. We will work on your behalf with your dental insurance to maximize your coverage to lower the amount you will pay out-of-pocket.

Other Options for Making Dentures Affordable

A member of our dental team will review your estimate and explain the fees, so you will know exactly what you'll have to pay before committing to anything. They will also discuss your payment options, which include:

  • Traditional Payments: Our office accepts cash, personal checks, and most credit cards for your convenience.
  • CareCredit: Based on your credit approval, you can make monthly installments for any out-of-pocket expenses. You can benefit from little or no interest in financing to pay for dentures using low monthly payments.
