Dentures — Immediate, Partial, Complete

Initial Placement Dentures — Least Expensive

The patient is referred to an oral surgeon or their general dentist for extractions. After healing for six (6) to eight (8) weeks, we have them come in for the impressions to start their dentures. At approximately six months, a reline appointment is scheduled.

The cost of the reline is "NOT" included in the original price of the dentures.

PROS: The patient is able to try their teeth in while they are set up in wax. The benefit of this is that the patient is able to see what the denture(s) will look like. If the patient does not like the arrangement of the teeth or the tooth color, shape, or size, we can change it before the denture(s) is completely finished. Another benefit is the denturist will be able to double-check the original measurements of your bite, proper midline placement, and overall esthetics.

CONS: Patient must go without teeth for at least six (6) to eight (8) weeks before denture process can be started and then wait another four (4) to six (6) weeks for the completion of the denture(s).

Immediate Permanent Dentures — Mid-Price

The patient is scheduled with the denturist for four (4) to six (6) appointments to have the denture(s) made prior to the extractions of their teeth. The patient will have their extractions and teeth placed at the same time. After approximately four (4) to six (6) weeks we will schedule the patient for a temporary reline appointment. The initial temporary reline is included in the cost of the denture. The patient may have additional temporary relines done at half the normal fee. Approximately six (6) months after the placement of the their denture(s), the patient will need to schedule an appointment to have a permanent reline done. This fee is "NOT" included in the original price of the denture.

PROS: The patient does not have to go without teeth at any time.

CONS: We are unable to try the teeth in before they are placed. Therefore, we are unable to verify the bite and the patient is #unable to approve of the aesthetics prior to processing. If for any reason either of these#things is incorrect there may be a fee to make the necessary corrections.The patient is scheduled with the denturist for four (4) to six (6) appointments to have the denture(s) made prior to the extractions of their teeth.

Transitional Immediate Dentures — Most Expensive

The patient is scheduled to see the denturist for approximately four (4) to six (6) appointments prior to their extractions to have a temporary set of dentures made. The patient's extractions are done and the temporary set of dentures made. The patient's extractions are done and the temporary dentures are placed at the same time by the oral surgeon.

At approximately four (4) to six (6) weeks after the initial placement, we will schedule the patient for a temporary reline. The initial temporary reline is included in the cost of the denture(s). The patient may have additional temporary relines done at half of the normal fee. After six (6) months, the patient will come back to have a permanent set of dentures made.

PROS: Patient does not have to go without teeth at anytime during the process. If the bite or esthetics are not exactly the way the denturist or patient would like to see them, changes can be made at this time, and continue making the permanent set. After the entire treatment process, the patient will have two complete sets of dentures.

CONS: Most expensive treatment plan.

Replacement Dentures

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures should be replaced every 8 to 12 years every individual case is different. You should reline your denture or partial every 3 to 5 years.

Partial Dentures

If you are missing some of your teeth and want to replace them what you need is a partial denture. There are two kinds of partial dentures, Metal-Framework Partial Dentures and Acrylic Partial Dentures.

If you want to replace the missing teeth with something more permanent and long term then a metal framework partial is what you need. If you are looking for something that will replace your teeth temporarily or that is more cost effective then you may want an acrylic partial.

With a consultation appointment we can help you decide what is best for you.
