It takes a few weeks for your mouth to adjust to your dentures. Your gums will feel tender and it will take some time to get used to eating. If you need your remaining teeth pulled prior to receiving dentures, this procedure will require a period of healing as well. Our team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to reduce your discomfort while you heal. Should you experience any issues with your dentures, be sure to call our office right away for a follow-up.
Dentures are available in partial and complete. Partial dentures are for patients who still have most of their teeth intact but are missing a few that are needed for chewing, speaking or smiling. Partial dentures can be permanently placed, but many patients prefer the removable variety as it is less expensive and in many ways, easier to maintain. Complete dentures are required when a person has lost their full set of teeth.
While a considerable investment in your oral health, dentures are typically more affordable than dental implants. The total cost of your dentures will depend on your case and the type of dentures you choose, such as full or partial. Our team will discuss all treatment costs and payment options during your denture consultation.
In most cases, yes. Dental insurance will usually cover the cost of your dentures in part or full, depending on your plan. Our friendly team is here to help you and will answer any questions you may have about your coverage. We also offer flexible financing options to help you cover all out-of-pocket costs associated with a new set of dentures.
