There are various types of dentures available, each with its own features, benefits, and associated costs. Here are some common types of dentures along with a general idea of their costs:
1. Conventional Complete Dentures
Conventional complete dentures replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw or both. The cost of conventional complete dentures typically ranges from $1,300 to $3,000 per arch (either upper or lower), with an average cost of around $2,500 for a complete set (upper and lower).
2. Partial Dentures
Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain in the mouth. The cost of partial dentures can vary depending on factors such as the materials used, the complexity of the design, and the number of teeth being replaced. On average, partial dentures can cost between $700 and $1,800.
3. Immediate Dentures
Immediate dentures are placed immediately after the extraction of remaining natural teeth, allowing the wearer to have teeth during the healing period. The cost of immediate dentures can range from $1,300 to $3,000 per arch, similar to conventional complete dentures.
4. Implant-Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures provide increased stability and function by attaching to dental implants that are surgically placed in the jawbone. The cost of implant-supported dentures can vary significantly depending on the number of implants required and the type of attachment system used. On average, implant-supported dentures can cost between $4,000 and $30,000 or more per arch.
It’s important to note that these cost ranges are estimates and can vary depending on several factors, including the geographic location, the dentist’s expertise, the quality of materials used, and any additional procedures or treatments required.
Additionally, it is advisable to consult with a dentist or prosthodontist to receive an accurate assessment of your specific needs and an estimate tailored to your situation. They will be able to provide you with a more precise cost estimate after evaluating your oral health and discussing your treatment options.
