How Can I Balance Cost with Quality When Choosing My Dentures?

Are you worried about denture costs? Here’s why price shouldn’t necessarily be your number one concern and some tips on how to balance affordability with quality when choosing your dentures.

For many people, price plays a huge role in deciding which tooth replacement option, from dentures to implant-supported dentures, is right for them. There are many factors that can affect how affordable your dentures are, including:

  • Material
  • Design and fabrication
  • The number of teeth that need to be replaced
  • How your dentures will be secured

Remember: Dentures are not a one size fits all treatment and each set of replacement teeth will have to be customized to meet the individual patients’ needs, so the cost of dentures can vary.

3 Reasons Why Denture Cost Shouldn’t Be Your Only Concern

While cheap dentures may seem like a bargain, they will most likely end up costing you a lot more in the long run. Why? Not only will low-cost dentures require frequent repairs and/or replacements, but they’ll also negatively impact your oral and general health, leading to an increase in treatment costs.

Here are some of the hidden costs of opting for cheap, low-quality dentures:


1. You Increase Your Risk of Bone Loss

To maintain its strength and form, your jaw requires stimulation from tooth roots. Because low-cost, poor quality dentures won’t provide the necessary pressure, you will start to experience bone loss. This can have consequences such as:

  • Aged appearance
  • Further tooth loss
  • Higher risk for jaw bone fracture
  • Increased risk of gum disease

Why you should consider dental implants

Unlike traditional dentures, dental implants very closely replicate the function of your natural teeth. They also provide constant stimulation to your jawbone, protecting against bone loss.

2. Your Quality of LIfe Will Decline

One of the main reasons why you should never opt for cheap dentures is because it can have a detrimental effect on your quality of life. While low-cost dentures may come at a lower price, they will also affect many areas of your life and make day-to-day activities frustrating.

Cheap dentures will:

  • Cause you discomfort and/or pain
  • Make if difficult to stick to a healthy diet
  • Lead to speech difficulties and affect your social life
  • Constantly irritate your gums

If you are struggling with your denture costs, talk to your denturist about a flexible payment plan or consider government programs for financial assistance.


3. Higher Maintenance and Replacement Costs

While it may be a relief to may a lower cost initially when investing in dentures, you must remember that the lifespan and durability of low-quality, cheap replacement teeth will pose a huge financial problem in the future.

Not only will they require constant repairs, but they’ll also need to be replaced more often, significantly raising your long term denture costs.
