Which Denture is Right for Me?

Before we can recommend a denture, we’ll need to perform an exam to see how severe your tooth loss is, then go from there. We encourage you to read a bit more about your denture options ahead of your initial visit.

Partial Dentures

A partial denture is designed to only replace specific teeth throughout the mouth. The restoration fits inside your mouth like a puzzle piece, wrapping around individual teeth using metal hooks to remain in place.

Full Dentures

When you are missing all your teeth in a single arch (or both), a full denture is your best option. If you only have one or two teeth left in your arch, we may remove them in order to make room for the full denture. This option is designed to rely on the natural shape of your mouth as well as suction to the gums to remain secure.

Implant Dentures

Dentures can also be paired with a series of dental implants, which are placed in-house by Dr. Kboudi. In most cases, anywhere between four and six implants will be needed to hold your denture in place.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dentures?

If you are dealing with significant tooth loss, chances are dentures are a great option to make your smile complete once again. With that said, you should have sufficient oral health before you have them placed. For example, if you have existing issues like tooth decay, gum disease, or oral infections, we’ll get you started on treatment for these dental concerns first to ensure the smoothest tooth replacement possible.

If you’d like, we can also discuss your options for dentures retained with dental implants for a more secure, longer-lasting fit. While this process is more time-consuming and expensive, it’s worth the longevity that dental implants provide!

Benefits of Dentures

For decades, dentures have been one of the most popular solutions for severe tooth loss thanks to a variety of reasons, including:

  • Affordability, even when missing several or all teeth
  • Fast and easy results that last for many years
  • The ability to eat more of your favorite foods
  • Support for your facial features, creating a younger appearance
  • Easy at-home maintenance

Understanding the Cost of Dentures

Every denture is personalized to your exact needs to ensure the best comfort and esthetics possible. However, this means they can vary in cost quite a bit. You’ll need to keep certain factors in mind ahead of your initial consultation, whether it’s to discuss your very first denture or your next replacement. Below, you can learn more about the most common factors that influence the price of your denture in more detail.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Dentures

The three main factors affecting the cost of receiving a denture generally include the following:

  • Whether or not you’ll need preparatory treatments beforehand (such as tooth extractions to make room for your tooth replacement)
  • The type of acrylic material used to create the base of the denture (this portion is dyed so it blends in with your gums)
  • Replacement teeth materials (i.e. acrylic is going to be more affordable than porcelain, but less durable and long-lasting)

It’s a good idea to think of your denture as a worthwhile investment, so you won’t want to cheap out on something that’s going to be inside your mouth for most of the day.

Are Implant Dentures More Expensive?

Because implant dentures rely on dental implants to hold them in place, your treatment to rebuild your smile will be considerably more expensive as a result. Dental implants require a high level of expertise, additional materials, and provide many benefits that you won’t find with standard dentures. In essence, you get what you pay for. If you choose implant dentures to replace teeth, you can expect something that is designed to last for decades, stay in place no matter what foods you eat, and look more natural than any other tooth replacement option.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Dentures?

Because dentures are labeled as a “major procedure” by most dental insurance companies, this means they will often receive around 50% coverage from a typical plan. This largely depends on what plan and insurer you have, however, which means you’ll want to confirm this with your provider ahead of time. Our team will look over the details of your plan and answer any questions you may have about your coverage if you have it.

Other Options for Making Dentures Affordable

Even if you don’t have dental insurance, that doesn’t mean you can’t make dentures affordable. One of the most common options patients take advantage of is CareCredit, which is essentially a service that lets you enroll into a payment plan to cover the cost of dental services over an extended period of time. These payments can easily be fit into a tight budget and often come with little to no interest attached.

Alternatively, you can enroll into our office’s in-house membership plan to help make your preventive dentistry and other services more predictable and affordable. You can even receive discounts on services provided at our office.

What Is the Average Age for Dentures?

While tooth loss is by no means inevitable for most patients, it is an issue that becomes far more common as one grows older. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, approximately 66% of adults between the ages of 40 and 64 are missing at least one tooth, compared to only 33% of adults aged 20-39. Thus, you are more likely to need partial dentures or full dentures over the age of 40. As you enter your golden years, you are even more likely to need dentures. The American Dental Association took a census that found that nearly 57% of people ages 65 to 74 wear some form of denture. Finally, it’s important to note that although the need for false teeth generally increases as you age, people of all ages can potentially be candidates for dentures.

Will It Hurt to Get Dentures?

Wearing dentures will not cause you any serious pain. However, if you need to have teeth extracted before getting dentures, you are likely to experience some discomfort after the oral surgery. This mild discomfort can be managed by taking prescribed pain medication as directed and should disappear in 3 to 5 days after the procedure. Once you begin wearing your new dentures, some minor irritation may occur while your mouth adjusts to the new appliance. While the amount of time the discomfort lasts varies from person to person, it usually fades within a few months. If the pain persists longer than that, call a denture dentist in Beverly Hills as soon as possible. The dentures might not have been fitted properly or there might be an underlying oral health issue that needs to be addressed.

Can I Sleep with My Dentures?

In general, we recommend taking your dentures out at night – with one important exception. When you first get your dentures, you should keep the restoration in your mouth for 24 hours, including while you sleep. After that, you should be taking it out every evening. Wearing dentures restricts the circulation in your gums, leading to soft tissue irritation and potentially speeding up ridge resorption. When you take your dentures out at night, it gives your gums a chance to recover and get the nutrients they need. In addition, the dark, moist space underneath dentures is an ideal place for bacteria to thrive. Higher levels of gum and tongue plaque are associated with wearing dentures for too long. So, if you want to preserve your oral health, be sure to remove your dentures before going to bed each night.

Will Dentures Change the Shape of My Face?

Wearing dentures in Beverly Hills can help you maintain a younger, more vibrant appearance. When teeth go missing, your facial muscles will begin to sag, and that can give your face a sunken appearance. Dentures can provide support to the collapsed facial muscles, thus improving your appearance. Ill-fitting dentures may not give your facial muscles the proper support, however, so it’s important to obtain a custom restoration that fits perfectly in your mouth.
