Why Cheap Dentures Are a Huge Waste of Money

Posted in Dentures

Dentures can certainly be pricey. In an effort to save money, you might want to pay for the cheapest set you can find.

But as long as it’s within your budget to do so, you should seriously consider doing the opposite: paying for the best ones you can afford.

Here’s why…

You Get What You Pay For

A cheap denture costs less because it’s made from cheaper materials and/or isn’t customized as well to fit your mouth. As a result, it’s apt to give out far sooner than you’d think. You’ll then spend a lot of time and money on repairing your denture time and again.

Cheap materials also mean that your denture may be more prone to hosting infectious pathogens like bacteria and fungus. Microscopic cracks in the cheap acrylic could lead to bad breath, sore gums, and frequent bouts of thrush.

Quality Materials, Quality Life

Paying more for a nicer denture means investing in a better quality of living. The teeth on your denture will look more natural, the acrylic won’t fracture quite so easily, and it’ll be easier to get that perfect fit. A quality denture also means a better diet since you’ll have an easier time of chewing your food.

Affordable Dentures That Last

Don’t settle for buying the cheapest dentures possible. Rather, you want a set that will last you the longest and help you keep your gums and remaining teeth healthy.

Talk with your dentist or prosthodontist about creating the right kind of denture that meets your needs without emptying your bank account. The dental office may also have suggestions on convenient payment plans to help you comfortably afford your denture.
