Denture and Dental Implants Costs
My fees vary depending on which treatment you choose. Fees for my specialized custom dentures and dental implants vary depending on the difficulty of the case and time involved. At the time of consultation I will show examples of each so that you can make an educated, informed decision and choose which is right for you.
Denture and Dental Implant Guarantee
No manufacturer of denture materials guarantees their product to be unbreakable. Our dentures are made of the finest, most durable, break-resistant materials available in the world; however, they are not indestructable. Given the right set of circumstances or lack of care, any prosthesis (removable or fixed) can be broken. Dentures are especially vulnerable when the back teeth are worn down causing more stress on the middle of the denture while chewing.
All dentures require periodic adjusting or relining as your mouth and gum tissues change over time. Dentures are not self-adjusting, they need to be examined on occasion for signs of wear or damage. Dentures work by providing friction, and friction inevitably leads to wear. This is the most basic principle of denture construction and use. The harder and higher quality the denture tooth, the longer it will last. The cheaper and softer the tooth, the quicker it will wear.
