Dentures and Your Budget – Factors Affecting Cost
Dentures can create new smiles for people who have no teeth. Partial dentures or overdentures can replace missing teeth for those who still have some of their natural teeth intact. After tooth loss, replacement is important for maintaining the stability of other teeth and the structural integrity of your face. If your teeth aren’t replaced, you may have trouble biting or chewing properly, and bone loss can make you appear older than you are. Today’s best dentures are comfortable, functional, and natural looking. Although they require an investment of time and money, the cost is minimal compared to the positive effects on your self-esteem and health.
Affordable quality dentures are within reach in almost all cases, but treatment prices can vary widely based on the following factors:
- How many extractions or other preparations are required.
- How complex the dentures are.
- How long it takes to fabricate the dentures.
- Where the dentist is located.
- The credentials and expertise of the dentist.
- Dental insurance coverage and co-pays.
- Length of warranty.
If dentures aren’t covered under your dental insurance, or if you don’t have a dental policy, third-party financing may be available or your dentist may offer a payment plan that meets your needs. If your income is low, check with local dental clinics to see if financial assistance is available. You may also be eligible for a federal grant to cover the cost of dentures. If not, consider contacting local dental schools to find out if they offer affordable quality dentures at reduced costs.
