How Much Does it Cost to Get Dentures?

Posted in Dentures

For some folks, dentures are a costly investment.

If you are deciding whether or not to get false teeth, you’re understandably worried about the investment.

Take a minute to consider what dentures actually cost and then decide for yourself – are they really worth it to you?

What Factors In?

Dentures never come at a one-price-fits-all deal. They can range in cost from a few hundred dollars to nearly $8,000. The price varies depending on how detailed your dentures are, what they’re made from, where you get them from, and how much your insurance covers.

Besides the dentures themselves, you’re looking at expenses for:

  • Evaluations and x-rays
  • Manufacturing fees
  • Adjustments and relines
  • Surgery or extractions (if needed)

Clearly, it gets a little tricky to estimate the cost of dentures!

If you still have plenty of fully functioning teeth left, don’t be in a hurry to get them pulled. You could save a lot more money by just taking care of the teeth you have rather than exchanging them for dentures.

On the other hand, just deciding to go ahead with dentures could be the wiser route. That’s only if you would be throwing away cash to repair teeth with no hope of staying intact for long.

Are Dentures Right for You?

Bear in mind that the “cost” of dentures involves more than just the price tag.

Before making a decision, you’ll need to think about what you may sacrifice by getting (or not getting) dentures. Carefully weigh your priorities and get some help in determining the right choice for you.

Contact your dentist to get a full dental check-up as well as a treatment cost estimate for dentures or other options like implants.
