Why Choose Grand Dental - Aurora for Dentures?

Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

If a person is missing an entire arch of teeth, they’ll likely be considered a candidate for treatment. If a person is only missing a few natural teeth, they may be recommended for a dental bridge. However, if there is a chance the individual could face additional tooth loss in the future, it may be in the person’s best interest to go ahead and have these teeth removed so that a full denture can be put into place.

No matter the decision, patients can trust that our team will identify the ideal solution and establish a treatment plan to help individuals attain their goals.

What Are the Different Types of Dentures?

Implant dentures, full dentures, and partial dentures are the three types of prosthetics a person and their periodontist will go over during an initial consultation. Each offers its own benefits, so any of the following options can help a person reach their smile goals.

Partial Dentures

With a partial denture, the base is crafted from a gum-colored acrylic, and artificial teeth are placed on top. Because several non-consecutive teeth are missing, this prosthetic will attach to healthy teeth using metal clips, filling in the gaps in one’s smile.

Full Dentures

When all natural teeth are missing, the only reliable solution is a full denture. This can be accomplished by taking an impression of the mouth and having customized dentures created to fit comfortably. No matter which arch requires replacement (or both), full dentures are held into place using natural suction and additional adhesive if necessary.

Implant Dentures

For a more superior tooth replacement solution, implant dentures are a popular choice. With millions of adults in the United States already living with these titanium prosthetics, that number continues to increase because of their functionality, stability, and longevity (30+ years or more!).

Understanding the Cost of Dentures

Patients who are considering dentures to replace their missing teeth often wonder about the fit, the comfort, the adjustment phase, and the cost. Attempting to identify how much a person can expect to pay for this type of restorative treatment is impossible without a consultation. This is why Grand Dental – Aurora implores patients to schedule an appointment to discuss not only candidacy but also the process and the cost of dentures in Aurora. Read below to learn more about how we make the tooth replacement process easier.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Dentures

A denture dentist in Aurora must meet with patients before any decision is made regarding this type of restorative prosthetic. Some of the factors that must be determined before providing a cost estimate to an individual interested in dentures:

  • The number of teeth that are missing
  • If preliminary treatments are necessary (i.e., bone grafting, periodontal therapy, tooth extraction)
  • The types of materials used to create the dentures (acrylic and/or porcelain)

There are cheaper dentures made by various manufacturers and pushed by other dental offices; however, choosing this route will only lead to weakened prosthetics that require more frequent replacement.

Are Implant Dentures More Expensive?

Implant dentures are more expensive than traditional prosthetics. Their titanium posts must be surgically implanted into the jawbone before they can adequately support a custom-made denture. Because of the oral surgery that is required as well as the longevity they provide, which is often 30+ years, they are often worth the investment for many patients. Instead of seeking new teeth every 10-15 years, implant dentures can remain in place for as long as a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. The caveat that comes with implant dentures is that patients must possess good overall health before moving forward with treatment.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Dentures?

Dental insurance in Aurora

Most dental insurance companies do offer coverage for dentures in Aurora. Typically, the percentage offered is up to 50%. If a person has met their deductible and has a remaining balance in their annual maximum allotment, the insurance company will agree to pay for a portion of the treatment. This is good news for anyone in need of a fully restored smile but lacks the out-of-pocket funds to afford it.

Other Options for Making Dentures Affordable
