If you’re wondering if dentures are right for you or concerned about cost, we’d love for you to talk to one of our denture specialists.
The average cost of a set of dentures depends on your needs and dental plan. At Mortenson Family Dental, our price generally ranges from around $650-$1800, depending on what materials the dentures are made out of and how many teeth you are replacing.
Dentures will eventually need to be replaced, but with the proper care, they can last several years. In general, dentists recommend getting new dentures every 5 to 8 years. Over this time, dentures get worn out due to regular use, and your gums may change shape or shrink over the years.
Denture relining is a simple and affordable procedure that reshapes the underside of a denture to make it more comfortable as it rests against your gums. Relines are referred to as “soft” or “hard,” and can be completed either at the office or in a lab.
In general, it takes about 30 days to get used to wearing dentures. One should have a little patience during this time, as learning to eat and speak again can be a challenge. Expect some soreness to persist at first, especially if you’ve had tooth extractions.
