Dentures Dentist near Escondido, Poway and Rancho Bernardo

Missing teeth can damage your oral health and your self-esteem. Let us restore your smile with modern dentures. Dentist Dr. Salami will take molds of your mouth to ensure that your dentures fit comfortably and closely resemble your natural teeth. Dentures may even improve the look of your smile and help fill out your facial features.

If you have lost all of your teeth, you will need a complete set of dentures for your upper and/or lower arch. Dentures are usually secured with adhesive, and they require special daily care. In some cases, the best option is to remove remaining teeth for a full denture. However, partial dentures fit with remaining teeth like a puzzle piece. If you receive a partial, expect it to be secured with clasps that fit onto remaining natural teeth. To avoid adhesives or clasps, consider dental implant-supported dentures. You’ll be able to eat your favorite crunchy foods and smile with renewed grace after you receive your custom dentures.

How much do dentures cost in San Diego?

Dentures are an affordable solution to restoring your ability to chew, talk, and smile without the embarrassment or oral health complications associated with missing or decayed teeth. You can expect to pay anywhere from $300 to $5000 for dentures. That’s quite a range, but like almost any other type of dental restoration solution, exactly how much you pay will depend on several different factors, including.

  • Quality of materials – The lower the dentures cost to make, the less you’ll pay at the front end. But you’ll also sacrifice comfort and appearance if cost is the only factor you consider. Higher quality dentures will cost more, be more comfortable, look better, and last longer.
  • The scope of treatment – The cost of your dentures will be higher or lower depending on whether just a few teeth need to be replaced, or you need a full set of dentures. If you need tooth extraction, this will also affect the total cost of getting dentures.
  • Denture type – There are a number of different kinds of dentures (see below), and what you pay will depend on the type of dentures you need. For example, if you need a partial set of dentures, you’ll pay less than if you need a full set. Or if you choose implant-supported dentures, you may pay more than you would for standard dentures.
  • Your insurance policy – Some insurance plans will cover a portion of the cost of dentures, which can help defray the amount you have to pay out of pocket. Not all plans will cover dentures, however, and even those that do may not cover all types of dentures.

Whether your insurance policy covers part of the cost of your dentures or you’re paying out of pocket, we offer several financing options for your convenience.

Different type of Dentures

There are a number of different types of dentures on the market today, each designed for maximum function and aesthetics.

  • Full (complete) dentures replace an entire set of teeth, upper and lower. They are removable, made from acrylic or porcelain, and held together by an acrylic or metal base. Complete dentures are fully customized to fit your mouth and help you chew comfortably and smile with confidence.
  • Partial dentures replace a few missing teeth. Partial dentures can be removable or fixed to the adjacent teeth. Removable partial dentures consist of replacement teeth attached to an acrylic base and built onto a cast metal framework to hold them in place. Fixed partial dentures are held in place either by crowns on the adjacent teeth or implants.
  • Immediate dentures are designed to be worn for the six to eight weeks immediately after your teeth have been extracted, and before your traditional dentures are placed. They are only temporary and will not be as comfortable as the more permanent dentures, which will be customized and molded to your mouth.
  • Upper dentures replace the teeth in your upper jaw. Not everyone needs both sets replaced.
  • Lower dentures replace the teeth in your lower jaw. Not everyone needs both sets replaced.
  • Implant-supported dentures are held in place by way of titanium implants surgically inserted into the jaw. Also called “overdentures,” they latch into place or snap onto the implants for better stability. Unlike dental implants, however, the dentures are still removable and must be removed daily for cleaning. Implant-supported dentures can be partial or complete.

Each of the above options can help restore not only your smile and your confidence but also your facial structure. Missing teeth can result in a collapsed look to the lower half of the face. Whichever dentures you choose will help keep you looking like you.

Which dentures are the best fit for you?

Choosing the right type of dentures will depend on your budget, the health of your remaining teeth, your lifestyle, and your comfort level. In cases of implant-supported dentures, the health of your jawbone will also be a factor. But you don’t have to have all of this figured out before you come see Dr. Salami. When you come in for your dentures consultation, she’ll examine your existing teeth, evaluate your oral health, and clearly explain your different options. Then, she’ll create a dental care plan designed to maximize your ability to chew, smile, and laugh freely.
