Cheap Dentures

The title could be $199 Dentures or $299 Dentures or Same Day Dentures. It doesn't matter. The point I'm going to make is about super cheap same day dentures (and other options). 

There are many types of dentures. In general there are pre-made dentures and custom made dentures.

Cheap same day dentures:

One advantage of cheap same day dentures is obviously the price. Another advantage is same day service. Other than that, there are no other advantages. 

There are several significant disadvantages with cheap same day dentures. 
  • The fit is very poor. This in of itself presents other issues such as having a loose denture and a more rapid loss of jaw bone. The loss of bone then exacerbates the poor fit and looseness of the denture.
  • The aesthetics are very poor. You don't want to have ugly dentures that can be spotted a mile away. This is a common issue with prefabricated dentures.
  • The function is very poor. If the dentures aren't fitting well, then the dentures will not function the way they are supposed to.
For some people, this may be the only feasible option.

If you are looking for a better option, consider a custom made or implant supported denture.

Custom made dentures:

These dentures are significantly better. The fit, aesthetics and function are greatly improved.

The disadvantage with these is obviously that they cost more and often require multiple dental appointments before you get to take them home.

Implant supported dentures:

I would hate to wear a denture. They will never be as good as real teeth. But, if you find yourself in a position to have to wear one, this is the best denture you can get.

With these dentures, you won't have to have an excessive amount of acrylic in your mouth. Your mouth will therefore not be crammed with a foreign material. You will also be able to taste, feel the textures and temperatures of your foods. In addition, you won't have to worry about the dentures flopping around or even falling out at the most embarrassing and inopportune times.

The biggest drawback to these dentures of course is the cost. These are significantly more costly than cheap same day dentures or conventional custom dentures. 

One other disadvantage is that the entire process may take multiple visits and take several months or more.


Now that you know that there are several options, you can discuss with your dentist your particular circumstances and choose an option that best suits your needs.
