Not everyone is born with a perfect set of teeth. Some have crooked teeth, some have underbites, whilst some suffer from overbites. All these imperfections make it extremely hard for us to flash our widest smile. I know how hard this is, but now there is hope!
Our positive energy is most often reflected in the way we smile. However, not everyone has the confidence to flash their pearly whites due to unsightly crooked or broken teeth. The appearance of our teeth greatly affects our ability to smile.
The good news is that you can change your life simply by getting full dentures from a skilled dentist to fix all the imperfections for good! Find out how you can wash away all the sad memories of having bad teeth with the help of this article!
What are dentures?
Dentures are artificial teeth and gums that replace lost teeth. Full dentures replace the whole top or bottom portion of the oral cavity. Partial dentures feature a few missing teeth only. Just like other forms of dental appliances, dentures are made to measure. Your dentist will make the necessary measurements to ensure that the appliance fits perfectly once fitted.
Why choose dentures?
Choosing dentures over other cosmetic dental treatments is more affordable. Besides the aesthetic benefits, keeping dentures in place ensures that nearby structures such as the cheeks and lips, maintain their proper form, and integrity.
Dentures also feed into our nutritional needs. These dental appliances help us in chewing food before they move to the gastrointestinal system for further digestion and absorption.
How much does it cost to have dentures installed in a Canberra clinic?
According to the Australian Dental Association (ADA), the cost of dentures is significantly cheaper than other viable solutions such as implants and jackets. This may sound strange but the price of full dentures is cheaper than the cost related to making partial dentures.
A complete upper denture price ranges between $900 and $1400, whilst a complete lower denture features the same price range. The average price for either complete lower and upper dentures is at $1197.
If you’re planning to replace natural teeth in both upper and lower portions of the oral cavity, prepare to invest between $1600 and $2500.
Besides these costs, patients will need to pay for maintenance and other denture-related treatments such as repair of broken dentures, broken base, and replacement of missing artificial tooth.
