implant retained denturesThe cost can vary depending on your needs.  A Prosthodontists’ prices are typically from $900 up per arch.  While a general dentist’s fees are cheaper, a good percentage of the time you get what you pay for.

A prosthodontist is specially trained to provide you with both a functional and esthetically pleasing denture.  This can be a painstaking job depending on the condition of your mouth’s bone structure.  So it’s really not a matter of sticking a pair of ‘slicks’ in your mouth and sending you off to eat corn on the cob.  The proper fitting of a denture usually requires follow-up visits to determine the actual results after use in the mouth.  When properly fitted, dentures can provide a great smile with a very natural appearance.

In addition, with implants, dentures can be implant supported such that your biting power is considerably increased. Implant supported dentures can correct several problems, from speech to chewing.  In addition to retarding bone loss, gum irritation or sores may also be avoided.

It is common that your mouth changes over the life of your dentures, so even though they last long, as the bone structure changes they may need to be replaced to achieve a better fit before they are worn out.  This can be avoided with implant supported dentures.

The exact charge for dentures really depends on the type you need and the quality of dentist you choose to complete the procedure.  This is a procedure you should definitely research your dental insurance coverage[1] and reputation of the dentist providing you with the care you need.
