As the price of traditional dentures continues to rise, many are looking for dentists and specialists that can fabricate an affordable denture. The big issue, however, has become the lack of quality of these low-cost dentures that has left many patients with false teeth that they are not proud of. At Best Dental, we have taken steps to assure that our patients not only save money on their dentures, but receive a top quality product that can help them regain their life. Below are the costs of different type of dentures that we provide our family of patients.

FACTORS DETERMINING DENTURES COSTS
Perhaps the number one determining factor when it comes to denture costs is the length of time that is needed to complete the case. There are a myriad of different functional bites that each one of us has. The more work and the more complex the construction of the denture treatment is, typically the more visits and more expensive the treatment ends up being. Some of the more difficult cases include patients with biting problems such as an overgrowth of their lower jaw, tilting of their upper jaw (also known as a cant), and patients who have lost significant jawbone structure over time. A highly qualified dentist needs to carefully study your case before they give you a price because treatment planning ultimately dictates the success of your treatment. Choosing just any dentist may lead to functional problems and loose dentures that you certainly don’t want.

DENTAL INSURANCE AND DENTURES COSTS
Your dental insurance plan is certainly going to help you with the burden of the costs when it comes to getting your dentures. There are many plans out there when it comes to dental insurance. Some may cover the entire course of your braces treatment, while others may only cover a portion of it. Check with your dentist or dentist to see exactly what your plan covers, and what your out of pocket expenses will be. Many times, the prices that you pay alongside your insurance plan are much lower than what you would have to pay if you did not have the insurance to begin with.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)
What are the best dentures to get?
If your finances allow it, all-on-4 dentures are the best denture that one can receive. An All-On-4 is a permanent denture that screws into dental implants that are placed inside your jawbone. As you may have heard of them on television, these teeth in a day dentures have revolutionized the field of dentistry by allowing denture wearers an opportunity to have a permanent teeth replacement option.
Do dentures look like real teeth?
At Best Dental, we construct dentures that are very natural looking to give our patients the confidence they need to live a full and healthy life. Not only do our dentures look great, but we construct them to function just as well.
How long should someone wear their denture each day?
It is always recommended that you remove your denture at night before you go to bed, and to place it back on first thing in the morning. Wearing your dentures while you sleep may lead to oral infections that can spread very rapidly to other areas of the body.
Do immediate dentures look good?
An immediate denture, also known as same-day dentures, are dentures that are placed the same day your teeth are extracted. Some dentists remove all of your teeth in one appointment and deliver your denture. At Best Dental, we do not like this approach as it usually leads to denture discomfort and biting issues. The removal of your back teeth is first recommended, followed by a series of short appointments to determine your biting angle. Once that is determined, we construct your final immediate denture and deliver it once we extract the remaining front teeth. When it is constructed in this manner, the aesthetics of immediate dentures rivals that of your traditionally made denture.
Is there a difference between porcelain dentures and acrylic dentures?
Porcelain dentures are of higher quality, but tend to have a higher fracture rate with their teeth as compared to acrylic. Both types of dentures function well, but Porcelain dentures in general allow patients to perform mastication functions with more efficiency.
How long can traditional dentures last?
Most dentures can last up to 15 years if they are well taken care of. Unfortunately, as we age, denture wearers suffer from bone loss along their ridges that hold the dentures in place. This causes dentures to get loose over time leading to relines and possibly the need to get a new set of dentures over time.
How many teeth can be removed at once when getting dentures?
Some dentists remove all of your teeth in the same setting or appointment before delivering your final dentures. As mentioned earlier, our team at Best Dental does not recommend this route unless our patients is getting permanent dentures.
Are lower dentures hard to wear?
On average, lower dentures tend to be less stable than top dentures. The reason for this is the lack of supporting tissue on the lower jaw along with the action of the tongue muscle which contributes to lower denture instability. It is normally a good idea to look into getting snap-on dentures for your lower teeth.
How much do traditional dentures cost at Best Dental?
While many dentists are charging over $2,500 for their upper and lower dentures, we charge only $1,999 for a complete set of upper and lower dentures.
What determines the costs of dentures?
The length of time it takes to complete the fabrication of your dentures. Some cases require more appointments due to the complex nature of a patient’s occlusion (also known as the way they bite).
Will Dental insurance help me with the cost of my dentures?
Yes it will. Every dental insurance plan is different, and we will verify exactly how much of your dentures will be covered under your plan during your complimentary consultation appointment.
What makes your dentures any different?
