Are Dentures Right for Me?
Missing teeth can affect Manahawkin dental patients in a myriad of unfortunate ways. If you have gaps in your smile, you might:

Types of Dentures
At Young Dentistry in Manahawkin, Dr. Young can assess your smile issues and discuss all your dental prosthesis choices. A budget-friendly solution to missing teeth is partials and dentures. Partials and dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth comfortably and snugly. New techniques and materials allow those ugly clasps everyone hated to be totally hidden or eliminated.
Overdentures can also be created to fit over existing teeth or implants to provide dentures that do not shift or move and are tightly attached underneath, requiring no need for pastes or powders. This option provides a secure solution to fill in your smile. Ask Dr. Young about overdentures for your needs during your initial appointment.
Esthetic dentures can completely refresh your appearance! By rebuilding the natural barrier to prevent cheeks from sinking inward and causing the face to sag, esthetic dentures from Dr. Young can greatly reduce the evidence of time on your overall appearance. If you would like to enhance your image, ask us about esthetic dentures during your consultation.
If you still have some natural teeth, then an excellent choice for recreating your smile is an esthetic partial denture, also known as partials. This type of dental prosthesis is made to fit around your natural teeth, filling in the line of your smile. If you’re missing all of your teeth, then a full set of dentures can be created. For patients in Manahawkin, Young Dentistry and Dr. Young can have you smiling again in no time!
Understanding the Cost of Dentures
The cost of dentures in Manahawkin is different for every patient. While it would be nice to have a set price, the truth is you cannot narrow the price tag of these prosthetics simply because there are too many factors our team must consider. As you become more familiar with the process of receiving dentures and whether they are the right solution for you, you are encouraged to ask about the financial obligation that comes with this type of treatment. You can count on our team at Young Dentistry to review your policy and provide realistic ways to save money on your new smile. We’ll even discuss alternative ways to pay that don’t cause you to go over your budget.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Dentures
When meeting with your denture dentist in Manahawkin, you can expect him to evaluate your smile and oral cavity using advanced dental technologies and a visual exam. After determining the severity of your tooth loss, Dr. Young will consider the following factors before crafting a personalized treatment plan that includes the estimated cost:
- The materials used to craft your dentures (acrylic for the base and acrylic or porcelain for the teeth)
- If you require preliminary treatments that will better equip your oral cavity for future dentures. These may include periodontal therapy, tooth extraction, or bone grafting
- The number of teeth you are missing from your smile, as this will determine the type of restoration you need (i.e., partial, full denture, or implant denture)
You may be considering a cheaper option because of the many dental offices that provide dentures, but you should be wary of any “professional” who offers less expensive materials. While not all are bad, many do not hold up as well. As a result, you could pay for cheaper dentures and be forced to have them adjusted or replaced after only a few short years. Remember, a less expensive solution is not always better.
Are Implant Dentures More Expensive?
Implant dentures are an alternative option to the traditional tooth replacement; however, they do require good oral and overall health as well as significant jawbone density. Because they require minor oral surgery, you can expect them to be more expensive than traditional dentures. The good news is they provide unique benefits that cannot be found with any other restorative solution. From greater oral health and jawbone stimulation to improved functionality while eating and a 30-year lifespan (or longer), you can’t go wrong with dental implants.
Does Dental Insurance Cover Dentures?
You will need to review your dental insurance policy (or have a member of our team work on your behalf) to determine how much your insurer will agree to pay for your new dentures. Every plan is different, so it’s important to get the facts up front before you agree to start treatment. Typically, most policies cover between 50 and 80% of the total cost. You can count on our dental team, however, to find ways to maximize your benefits so you can save more money throughout your treatment.
Other Options for Making Dentures Affordable
Finding an alternative form of payment for your dentures in Manahawkin shouldn’t be difficult. Even if your dental insurance company agrees to pay a majority of the cost, you may still need help to budget for the remainder. Fortunately, Young Dentistry works closely with CareCredit. This third-party financing company offers low and zero interest plans to eligible individuals. By signing up, you can easily break up the cost of your denture treatment and pay month-to-month. This not only allows you greater peace of mind, but it ensures you receive the care you need for a healthier, more fully functional smile.
