Do you have a missing tooth or two? Are you looking to replace your teeth or fill in the gap?
If you aren’t sure about where to start, including how much to budget and what kind of dentures you need, we’ve got you covered.
What Are Dentures?
A denture is a removable mouthpiece designed to replace any missing teeth in your mouth. They help to create a naturally beautiful smile and also restore function to your teeth.
The Benefits of Dentures Include:
– Looks and feels like real teeth
– Restores full functionality
– Makes it easier to speak and chew
– Prevents cheeks from sagging
– Regains youthfulness in face
Types of Dentures
There are 3 main types of dentures:
Complete (full dentures): suitable for patients who are missing all of their teeth.
Partial denture: replaces some teeth and is held in place by clasps around the remaining teeth. Fixed and removable options available.
An implant-retained denture: replaces one or more teeth and is fitted through implants in the jaw.
How Much Does It Cost For a New Set of Dentures
You may be wondering, are dentures expensive? The cost of dentures can vary depending on the particular services and type of dentures you require. Without health insurance, the cost of dentures is likely to be between $1,350 and $3,500 according to the latest Australian Dental Fee Survey.
Alternatives to dentures
If you are missing teeth, there are several options besides dentures available to you, including dental implants and bridges. Dental implants are a popular alternative to dentures as they are a permanent solution that closely resemble the feel and look of natural teeth. They are however more expensive than dentures, and they require a strong and healthy gum and jawbone, so not everyone is a candidate for this treatment.
