Patients in Ottawa Ontario ask about the cost of dentures
Posted By Dr. France Chevalier
Decay, disease, and trauma can lead to tooth loss, which takes away from your smile. Located in Ottawa Ontario, Dr. France Chevalier offers options to replace missing teeth. They can be replaced with dental implants topped with crowns, dental bridges, or dentures. When it comes to replacing teeth, patients may wonder about the cost of the treatment options.
What are dentures?
Dentures are removable and custom-made for each patient. The two main types of dentures are full and partial. Full dentures replace a full set of teeth on the top or bottom jaw; partials replace a few teeth. Today’s dentures have improved in appearance and function.
Proper care gives your dentures longevity
While dentures may need to be replaced over time, with proper care you can extend the life of your dentures, saving you additional money in the future. Caring for your dentures appropriately is important. Improper handling can lead to problems or can damage your dentures. Here are some tips for proper denture care:
Do not sleep with your dentures in unless your dentist instructs you to do so.
Handle your dentures carefully as they are delicate.
Clean your dentures daily.
Clean and massage your gums, tongue, and roof of your mouth daily.
Store your dentures properly.
Affording your dentures
The overall cost of dental services varies from patient to patient. Compared to dental implants which are surgically placed in the jawbone and then topped with a crown, dentures may be a more affordable option for replacing missing teeth. Insurance companies might cover some of the cost of your dentures. Check with your insurance company to determine what services are covered so you are aware of your out-of-pocket expenses ahead of time.
