A wide, bright smile is associated with health, success and attractiveness. So much so, that the loss of even one or two teeth can have a serious impact on your self-confidence.
Health is also impacted, as the lack of teeth means that food is not being properly chewed before arriving in the stomach. This in turn can lead to bloating and acid reflux.The benefits of dentures to those who have lost their teeth to periodontal disease, illness, tooth decay or traumatic injury are obvious. The question only remains how much do dentures cost and what kind of dentures do I need.
Factors Affecting the Cost of Dentures
Before dentures can be prepared and fitted, you may need several teeth extracted or other oral treatment. The costs of these procedures must not be overlooked when considering the price of dentures.
Denture Costs and Options
Dentures, whether they are complete or partial are intended to be worn daily and to last for years. There are low cost and even free options available for those who simply want a basic set of dentures however, if you want to ensure the best fit, durability, aesthetic quality and comfort, you will have to pay more.
Even so, many dentists offer a payment plan where you can pay down dental treatment fees over a period of months and your own dental insurance may also foot at least part of the bill.
