Why Choose Dulce Dental for Dentures & Partials?

Full Dentures

Losing an entire arch of teeth can be devastating, but it’s still possible to enjoy the benefits of a complete smile thanks to full dentures. The prosthetic stays in place on the gums thanks to natural suction, letting you chew a wide variety of foods again while also providing support for your face to maintain a youthful appearance. You can easily remove your dentures at night to clean them and to give your gums a chance to rest while you sleep.

Partials are suitable for those who still have some of their healthy teeth in an arch but have multiple gaps that need filling. Like full dentures, partials are made up of acrylic teeth and a gum-colored base, but instead of natural suction, it’s secured in place with a metal clasp attached to your natural teeth. This gives your partial greater stability so that it stays in place while you bite and chew. Partial dentures can be removed for thorough cleanings.

Understanding the Cost of Dentures

Dentures are generally the least expensive solution for missing teeth, which is one reason why they’re so highly recommended when there’s a lot of empty space in your smile. The actual cost will be different for every patient. We’ll discuss all of the factors that affect the price during your first consultation so that you can move forward with the process without getting caught off guard by the cost later. It’s important to have a full understanding of what goes into the final price and what your options for payment are.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Dentures

Some of the most influential factors that can change how much you end up paying for dentures include:

  • Preparatory Work: Sometimes gum disease therapy, tooth extractions, and other procedures need to be completed before you can get your dentures.
  • Number of Teeth Missing: Partial dentures carry a different cost than full dentures. As such, a partial denture that’s only meant to replace a few teeth carries a different price than a full denture that replaces an entire row of teeth.
  • Materials: Some dentures are made out of higher quality material than others. Note that cheaper material tends to break easily or might have to be replaced more often, so the less expensive option isn’t always worthwhile.

Are Implant Dentures More Expensive?

It probably goes without saying that implants will indeed add to the cost of your dentures, since you have to pay for the implant posts themselves as well as the surgery to have them placed in your jawbone. That said, implant dentures give you your money’s worth by offering many advantages, such as new teeth that don’t shift out of place when you’re trying to eat or new tooth roots that will stop the bone tissue in your jaw from resorbing. And in the long term, implant dentures can be a smarter investment than other tooth replacements because they don’t need to be replaced as frequently.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Dentures?

Dentures are considered a necessary restoration and are included in most dental plans. Most of the time you can expect up to 50% coverage for dentures, but this isn’t the same for every plan; check with your provider for the specifics. Our office is more than happy to accept all PPO insurances, and we’ll work with you to get the most out of your benefits.

Other Options for Making Dentures Affordable

Patients without insurance can sign up for the Dulce Dental Wellness Club, an in-house savings plan that lets you get 30 percent off most treatment fees with no waiting periods or monthly premiums to worry about. You can also apply for CareCredit financing, which will let you pay for your dentures in small monthly installments that can be designed to accommodate your budget. Feel free to ask our team members about our financial options; we want you to be able to enjoy a full smile without breaking the bank.

Dentures FAQs

Thanks to recent innovations in dental technology, modern dentures are more lifelike, durable, and comfortable than ever before. They have allowed millions of patients worldwide to enjoy having complete smiles again after tooth loss. With that said, though, we understand if you have a few questions that you need answered before committing to the treatment. For that reason, we’ve included the answers to a handful of frequently asked denture questions below. As always, feel free to reach out to us if you have any further questions!

Will it hurt to get dentures?

You may experience minor irritation and sensitivity in your gums after you first get dentures. This is completely normal as your mouth grows accustomed to your replacement teeth. For some patients, this discomfort only lasts for a few weeks, but for others, it may take months. Generally, the adjustment process takes longer if you have previously worn a denture and switched to a new one than if this is your first denture.

If you experience intense, persistent discomfort or even pain, please call us. There may be something wrong with your denture that we need to fix.

Can I sleep with my dentures?

When you first receive your new dentures in Dallas, you’ll most likely be instructed to keep the prosthetic in your mouth for 24 hours, including overnight, to help your mouth adjust. After that, we highly recommend taking your dentures out before bed.

Wearing dentures all day exerts pressure on your gum tissue, so removing it at night gives your gums some time to recover. Additionally, nighttime is the perfect opportunity to clean your dentures by letting them soak in lukewarm water or denture cleanser. Note that you should NEVER use hot water or let your dentures dry out; both of these choices could make your dentures warp and lose their comfortable fit.

Is it hard to talk with dentures?

In the beginning, speaking with dentures can be a bit of a challenge. After all, your mouth has to get used to talking around the new appliance inside of it. Many patients experience a period of a few weeks or months during which they accidentally slur their words, sound muffled, or produce unintentional clicking or whistling noises.

On the bright side, you can power through this adjustment process by practicing. Try reading your favorite book aloud or even singing in the shower! Applying a small amount of denture adhesive can ensure your teeth stay in place as you get used to them.

Can I have my dentures relined if they don’t fit properly? 

As more time passes without the roots of your natural teeth, your jawbone will gradually shrink, causing even the best-made denture to not fit correctly anymore after a few years. In many cases, we can perform a reline – an adjustment to the base of the denture to make it more comfortable and supportive. Depending on the extent of the alterations necessary, your denture dentist in Dallas can perform a reline right in their office, but in some cases, we may need to send it to an offsite dental lab. Either way, this procedure should make your dentures feel more lifelike for years to come.
