Partial & Full Dentures – Garland, TX
Eat & Speak with Complete Confidence
Tooth loss is one of the most troubling oral health issues that a person can experience. When tooth loss occurs, a person’s appearance suffers, and everyday tasks such as chewing and speaking can become very difficult. Over time, missing teeth can lead to jawbone deterioration, a loss of facial structure, severe bite imbalances and unwanted tooth shifts. That is why seeking treatment for tooth loss is extremely important.
The experts at Orbit Dental of Garland understand the challenges associated with tooth loss, and we take great pride in providing patients with natural-looking dentures that work to combat these issues. A denture is comprised of artificial teeth that are supported by a gum-colored base. Dentures are worn inside the mouth as a way of providing the appearance and function of healthy, natural teeth. They are held in place using specially designed mechanisms, keeping them secure and steady even while the wearer is talking or eating.
While it can take some time to get used to wearing dentures, most of our patients quickly discover that they are very comfortable and feel natural.
Several types of dentures are available depending upon the needs of the patient. If you would like to receive more information about the options that are available to you, please call us at (469) 277-2627 to schedule an appointment.
Understanding the Cost of Dentures
When choosing dentures to replace your missing teeth, one of the most pivotal questions you will likely ask is how much you can expect it to cost. These customized prosthetics are created differently for each person, so your expenses will be much different than someone else. Fortunately, at Orbit Dental, our team of expert professionals can provide a thorough estimate once we meet with you to discuss your individual needs. To better understand the factors that are considered when determining the cost of dentures in Garland, review the following information and contact our office to schedule an appointment to learn more.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Dentures
Before you can move forward with a newly restored smile, you must first schedule a consultation with a member of our team. Your denture dentist in Garland will examine your smile in its entirety and consider the following factors when creating a more thorough cost estimate for your full or partial denture:
- If you require any preliminary treatments, such as tooth extraction or periodontal therapy.
- The type of acrylic used to create the base of your denture.
- The artificial teeth that are used to recreate your smile. These are typically made from porcelain or acrylic.
While you may be tempted to go with a cheaper option or materials, the quality of your prosthetic may not prove to be worthwhile. The cheaper the quality, the more problems you might face later on.
Are Implant Dentures More Expensive?
Implant dentures are a great solution for patients who prefer a more permanent and stable prosthetic. Instead of relying on your natural suction or metal clasps to hold your teeth in place, implant dentures use small titanium posts that are surgically placed into your jawbone and create a solid foundation. These dentures in Garland are considered the “gold standard” for tooth replacement because of their many benefits (i.e., allows for a full diet, no slipping, greater confidence) and ability to improve oral health by stimulating the jawbone. Not to mention, these permanent prosthetics do require a more costly upfront investment, but they do not require frequent adjustments or replacements (every 5-7 years with dentures) and are known to last a lifetime with proper care.
Does Dental Insurance Cover Dentures?
Yes, most dental insurance companies will likely agree to pay a portion of your total cost when receiving dentures. Depending on your deductible and annual maximum, they will likely pay up to 50% of the total cost, which can significantly lower your out-of-pocket expenses. Of course, each insurance company is different, so you will need to check with your insurer to determine if or how much they will pay toward the cost of your treatment. If you need help to navigate the financial side of denture coverage, our knowledgeable staff will walk you through the process and even work on your behalf if you prefer.
Other Options for Making Dentures Affordable
Apart from using your dental insurance to cover the cost of your dentures, you may enroll in our in-house membership plan. This one low annual fee covers basic dental care and offers patients 15% ff any other available treatment. You can also apply for low or no interest financing through CareCredit. If you are eligible to enroll, you can break up the cost of your treatment into manageable monthly payments to help make your new smile more affordable.
