+What's the first step in getting dentures?
Before getting any teeth pulled or getting confused about how many types of dentures there are, it's best to come in for a free consultation so that we can go over which treatment plans will work for your individual needs. Frequently patients self-diagnose, wondering whether their teeth need to be pulled, or whether their loose-fitting denture need replacing. By coming in for a free consultation, we can assess your oral situation and provide a list of treatment plan options specific to your needs. The free consultation provides you with the opportunity to gain a clear understanding of what your needs will be as well as the different costs involved with each treatment.
+What are the different types of dentures?
Denture treatments include:
+What happens at the free consultation appointment?
At the consultation appointment, The Denture Centre’s denturist and staff examine the existing state of the mouth and then discuss which treatment plan best suits each patient’s health and financial needs. This may include a referral to get teeth extracted, dental implants, or simply determining which type of denture is ideal for each individual. The consultation appointment is also when estimates are sent to dental insurance to determine coverage.
+Why are consultations free?
At The Denture Centre, our primary goal is to provide treatment plans that are affordable and straightforward so that our patients are highly satisfied with their final denture, and there is a clear understanding as to the treatment plan process as well as all potential costs. By having our consultations at no charge, it allows us to have an open, honest discussion about all denture options including tooth extractions, immediate dentures, dental implants, as well as replacement dentures without the patients feeling uneasy about how much this assessment will be.
+How long does it take to get dentures?
There are generally four main stages of denture construction: impressions, measuring how you bite, trying the dentures on in a wax version, and then placement of the final denture. Each appointment takes about 15 to 30 minutes. And because we see hundreds of patients each week, we generally book each of the denture steps once every week or two. Thus, the whole process can take anywhere for 5 to 8 weeks. However, every patient's needs are different and additional needs such as extractions or implants can delay the treatment time.
+Is getting dentures pain free?
Generally, yes. Unless there are teeth to get extracted or implants to be placed, the denture making process involves only taking impressions of the mouth and measuring how the denture will seat properly against the gums. This procedure isn’t invasive beyond the uncomfortable feeling of having the impressions taken. Because we create so many new dentures every day, our denturists take impressions using less material and keep the impression material in the mouth for as short a time as possible.
+Are there other costs?
The Denture Centre offers complete dentures or partial dentures from $499 per denture. There is no tax on dentures, and the consultation is free. These prices include all appointments, materials, and adjustments for up to 90 days. There are no additional fees other than for such services as partial metal framework, denture implants, or if the denture is being made to be inserted immediately after tooth extraction.
+Tooth extractions and dentures
There are a number of different ways to have teeth pulled and dentures placed. It’s best to book a free consultation so that we can explain the benefits, risks, and costs involved in each treatment. We recommend that you have your denture consultation prior to booking any extraction appointment so that there is complete understanding regarding the extraction/denture process.
+Are there other denture prices available as well?
Yes! Not everyone is looking for the cheapest, most affordable option. We offer two other higher quality dentures that involve harder pink denture base acrylic, as well as stronger and more natural looking denture teeth. While still being higher quality, these dentures are also created with affordability in mind, ranging in price from $749 to $999 each denture. There is no tax, and consultations are absolutely free.
+What's the difference between the terms complete denture and full denture?
Nothing! They all describe the prosthetic that fits on one of the jaws should all remaining teeth be missing (pulled).
+Are the terms false teeth, denture, and plate the same?
Yes! Because dentures have been around since 700 BC and are used around the world, they have developed more than one name to describe them. Plate and denture are the two most popular.
