Are All Dentures Created Equal?

With all of the dentures out there, it can be easy to lump them all together. After all, isn’t one denture the same as any other? The answer may not be as simple as you think! Here are some important factors to consider before investing in dentures.


Different Types


  • Complete Dentures. If you are completely edentulous, this is likely the solution for you. These dentures replace all of the teeth in your mouth. Click here for more information on complete dentures. 
  • Partial Dentures. For those who still have healthy teeth remaining, partial dentures can help fill in the gaps. Read about partial dentures here.
  • Denture Implants. In many cases, simply having a removable denture is not enough to improve mouth function. Denture implants can help offer stability and support. Learn more about them here.
  • Specialized Options. Some patients have special considerations. Because of this, they require dentures that may need to be a little different in design, fit, or material. Check them out here.



Different Qualities

When it comes to dentures, you often get what you pay for. Denturists or dentists that charge less use cheaper materials and less customized processes. We recognize, however, that a lower price tag can be very tempting. Many of our patients have a fixed income, and cost is an incredibly important factor when it comes to dentures. However, cheap prosthetics don’t only look cheap, they affect your ability to eat and speak. That’s why it’s important to find a denturist willing to work with your budget and offer financing options. An affordable payment plan can allow you to maintain your quality of life without sacrificing your budget.


Different Needs

So what does all of this mean for you? It means that your dentures will probably be nothing like your grandparents’ dentures or your neighbour’s. Each mouth is incredibly unique and deserves a denturist that will be able to fit the proper dentures to it, whatever that looks like.
