4 Ways to Make Denture More Affordable

Dentures can be expensive but it is an investment in your health and your smile. Here are 4 ways patients could reduce the cost of dentures.

Personal Health Insurance 

If you need dentures, explore your options with private health insurance. The cost of personal health insurance could be worth it when you offset the monthly premiums with the reduced costs of many medical procedures, including custom denture services and dental implants. Your private health insurance may cover all or a portion of your denture costs. After consulting with your denturist, contact your private health insurance provider to discuss your coverage. 

Employer Benefits Often Include Dental Coverage

Many employer benefit packages include dental insurance and offer some dental coverage or the option to opt-in for dental coverage. Working with a denturist you can time your treatment plan to optimize your yearly allowance of employer benefits. Some employers also offer flex health spending accounts that can further reduce your out-of-pocket expenses for dentures.

Government Aid Programs

Seniors over the age of 65 years old may be eligible to receive provincial government aid for financing dental services, including full dentures or partial dentures. The government of Alberta can cover up to $5000 every five years for eligible seniors. Eligibility is determined by yearly income. A qualified denture clinic will be able to provide you access information for these government subsidies.

Find The Right Denture Clinic

If you are searching for the most affordable denture solutions, start close to home. Connecting with a denture clinic in your area removes the first barrier to great oral health; accessibility. A local denturist will be easy and convenient and reduce the stress and cost of travelling farther for denture service. A great denture clinic will also offer options that affect affordability like free consultations, flexible payment plans, direct billing, and optional financing.
