If you are missing several teeth, your cheapest option at your Affordable Dentist might be a partial denture that is formed around your existing teeth to provide a full set appearance. This denture is removable and only requires that you have two teeth on either side of your dental arch. Partial dentures are constructed to exactly mimic your dental structure so that it is almost impossible to tell that they are in place. There are several types of partial dentures designed for any dental makeup. Partial dentures are usually appropriate for patients that do not require a full set of dentures and cannot afford other options such as dental implants.
Your individual cost for your partial denture depends on a variety of factors. For example, partial dentures are often applied after a series of teeth have been extracted. This will add to the overall cost of the dentist visit. Also, specially designed partial dentures often carry a fee from the prosthodontist (the person responsible for designing the partial denture). In general, the more complex the partial denture, the higher the cost. Your partial denture will also vary in cost depending on the materials used to create it. Your Affordable Dentist will discuss these materials with you and you can agree on which ones will work best for you.
