Understanding the Cost of Dentures

dca-blog_dentures-splash-in-glass

Losing your teeth can have a huge impact on your social and professional life, and if you don’t replace them, it can also be detrimental to your health and wellbeing. Missing teeth can cause other teeth to shift. Eventually, bone loss occurs, and this can alter your face and make you appear much older than your years. Modern dentures are unlike their predecessors. They’re more attractive, comfortable, and functional. Full or partial dentures can give you back your smile and your ability to enjoy the foods you love. If you think dentures are too expensive, take heart. A little research and knowledge can help you find affordable quality dentures that won’t empty your bank account.

7 Factors Affecting Denture Costs

Affordable quality dentures are within reach in almost all cases, but treatment prices can vary widely based on the following factors:

  1. Complexity of the dentures
  2. Number of extractions or other preparations required
  3. Fabrication time for dentures
  4. Location of dentist
  5. Expertise and credentials of dental provider
  6. Dental insurance coverage and co-pays
  7. Length of warranty

The Best Dentures Are Those that Fit Within Your Budget

If your dental insurance doesn’t cover dentures—or you don’t have a dental policy, third-party financing may be available. Or, your dentist in Center City Philadelphia 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 costs of dentures. If not, consider contacting local dental schools to find out if they offer reduced treatment rates.
