Dentures are a great way to restore your smile and improve your oral health. But when it comes to choosing the right type of denture, there are a few factors to consider, including the cost. Different materials used for dentures can vary in price, with porcelain being the most expensive. Cast metal, porcelain and titanium are the most costly materials used for dentures, while acrylic resin is the most affordable.
An experienced dentist can help you decide which type of denture is best for you, based on your needs and budget. They can also explain how each denture is installed and help you choose dentures that make you feel more confident and allow you to eat foods that you have had to avoid in the past due to dental pain, missing teeth, or tooth sensitivity. Removable dentures should be cleaned at night with water or with denture cleaners to prevent them from drying out. Modern dentures are usually constructed with a molded or 3D printed acrylic resin base with porcelain or plastic “teeth” attached to it.
The cost of dentures will depend on whether you need a full set of dentures (upper and lower), the type of denture, and oral conditions (that is, if you need extractions or a replacement denture). Implant-retained dentures can be removable, snap-in type, or permanent, while conventional full dentures should always be removed at night. Metal dentures mean that the clasps of the dentures, or the palatine layer of the denture, are made of metal. Conventional dentures look more natural compared to temporary dentures, which aren't as well made and are designed to last only two or three months.
The base of the denture is attached to two or more plastic or metal clasps that will secure the denture in place. The clinical aspect, as well as the digital process of dentures, are very important when placing a dental prosthesis. Partial dentures rest on the remaining teeth and gums, while full or full dentures rest directly on the gums. The cost of high-end dentures can be high, but in the end, the ability to smile with confidence and enjoy your favorite foods again makes a new set of dentures worth every penny.
