Read on to learn more about the benefits, cost, and adjusting to life with dentures.
Benefits of dentures
Dentures have many benefits for patients who have suffered from tooth loss:
- Eating and speaking with confidence: Missing teeth can dramatically affect your ability to properly chew your food or say certain speech sounds; with dentures, you can perform these tasks with confidence again
- Natural appearance: With today’s modern dental materials and denture technologies, dentures look more natural than ever before so no one needs to know you have them
- Restore your youthful facial appearance: Missing teeth can give your cheeks a “sunken in” look, making you appear older than you are; dentures fill in your cheeks and restore their youthful volume
- Versatile: For many years, patients only had one option—fully removable dentures—but now, dental advances enable us to create a completely customized treatment plan that may include implant-supported dentures, full dentures, or partial dentures
Cost of full dentures
The cost of full dentures depends on a variety of individual factors, such as which materials are being used, whether you are getting both upper and lower dentures, if you need dental extractions, or whether you are getting “immediate dentures” or implant-supported dentures or removable dentures. Dr. Dietrich will go over all of your options with you and discuss the cost prior to your treatment, as well as payment options to fit your dentures into your budget.
Adjusting to dentures
Like any dental restoration, it will take some time to get used to life with your new denture. But before long, you will hardly notice you have them, and you will find that the ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence is well worth the adjustment period! We will work with you every step of the way and provide you with guidance on how to acclimate to your dentures as quickly as possible.
