Hi Barbara! When I got my cost estimate, they did not break it down this way.it was a total minus insurance cost minus coupon/promotional and the cash total amount due but I plan on going today for an adjustment I will see if I can get a detailed breakdown of it all. Thanks!

Any one going to have   Dental work done and has a job should participate  in a Medical set aside Tax program at their job
That will save about 20%  pr 25%  of the amount of salary up put aside
Ask your employer about it/
For example if you put aside $5,000 in salary for a year you will save about $1/000 to $1,500
in tax
You can even spend it before you save it

There is a dental Place in Cancun Mexico  that gave this price for implant secured dentures

This is  for some one that want a  denture stabilized with Two (2) implants  

It would be great for people that want a lower bridge stabilized  

The  2 implants would be a  snap on? for the denture 

 


It would be providing   2 Full size implants AND 1 brand new Snap on denture would be 

$3,180    USD

If they use their existing dentures the price would be 

$2,600 USD

Before you select a dentist read this:

For all dentist work you should thoroughly research the dentist before getting any treatment. Private dentist prices and charges can vary widely, and just because a private dentist 's price is high doesn't nesessarily mean you are being ripped off, you might well be getting very high quality dental work. Like wise a very cheap dentist may still be providing high quality private dental care, but at a lower price.

The cost of dental work depends upon the circumstances and specifics of the job entailed. Therefore, it is difficult to say exactly how much, for example, a new bridge should cost. The prices on this websites are guidelines only. Just because an actual price is slightly more or less doesn't mean you are getting 'ripped off'. Note also that some dental work is subjective. One dentist may recommend a new bridge whilst another may suggest you'll be better off without one. If in doubt get a second opinion - if possible.

Preventative dentistry is better than cure, both in terms of how hard it hits your wallet and how much it hurts! Ideally you should visit your dentist every 6-12 months for a check up.

I went to affordable dentures, I had22 teeth pulled and 8 implants 4on top 4 on the bottom,the cost was not broken down 16,000 total cost.
I’m 2 months into the process and feeling this is the biggest mistake I’ve ever made.the temporary dentures are the worst! They just don’t fit! I have been back on average once or twice a week. Last week one of the implants started poking through on the bottom the dentist said it looked good and to just get a water pic and make sure I keep it clean. That area has been red and swollen since I had the procedure done and now the implant is poking through, the water pic hasn’t made a bit of difference. My periodontist fee was 50,000 but who has that kind of money? So that’s how I ended up at affordable dentures, but the dentist had great reviews online.

Hi linda
Welcome
We are here to   support and educate each other

$16,000??  That sounds OK??
8  implants without the crown I guess could cost $8,000??
plus the attachments for the clip on
Have you paid the  entire thing in front???
How much of the $16,000 have you paid??:
Did you put it on a charge??

I would ask Affordable  to break the bill down for you
If you are dissatisfied with these temporaries and they can
 not make them right  you might want to go elsewhere for your
final permanent dentures 

You are doing the right thing by going back week after week
Unfortunetly   you will have to continue to return  until they
make the temps correctly
Perhaps they have to give up  on these and make  entirely   new
temps as it sounds like they have botched these up 

Can you ask them if there is some senior dentist in their
group that can consult with you and your dentist?
Can they give you a new dentist ?
Unless they get these temps right I would not trust
them to make the permanent dentures.

Ask them to break your bill down and figure how much you have already paid.
How much are they  charging you for the temps???

Do they  plan  on giving you a clip on removable denture?
That could  work well if they do it right

Keep us in the loop so you can help other people and yourself
Stay well

Mine isn’t broken down by detail either. It is a comprehensive cost including fully sedated extractions, bone grafts, 11 implants, temporary dentures, final dentures, unlimited relines of temporaries, and whatever visits are necessary for complications or unexpected situations. And it involves 2 sedated surgeries. It’s the Hybridge process.

$28,000 per arch with 10% discount for full payment in advance. I have no insurance so don’t know if any of it would be covered. But it is tax deductible as a medical expense and you better believe I took it!

I don’t need it broken down. I have accepted it as the comprehensive cost. I have paid them. Once I decided to go forward, I decided to not think about it again. The actual process is much more on my mind than the money since I am a dental phobic. I am almost 7 months in and I am at the end of the process. I should have the teeth installed within the month. I have taken the onward and upward attitude towards this whole thing. Don’t look back. It’s really the only thing you can do once all your teeth are gone and they are step one in the process. And I’m not rich or anything but ordinary. I cashed in the Trump bump in my 401k at just the right time.

HI Janet
Good luck with this
I had all my uppers with all implants done about 10 years ago and it has
been so good.   Just a blessing.  I never had any trouble with them
Once I fell on my face and broke them but they just repaired them
The cost of the implants and extractions was $25,000.
It was the best money I have ever spent

Hi janet
I had all implants both  uppers and lowers more then  10  years ago
They have been wonderful
Not a peep of trouble or discomfort

I have never felt like   they were anything but perfect and like my own teeth
They were expensive for me and a stretch financially
I just pretended I bought and could  afford a Mercades Benz

By  now I have forgotten  the cost and I am so glad I did it

Quick explanation of two differing providers - my NHS Dentist did not feel that he was competent enough to build my dentures because of my overbite - he said he would try or otherwise he would refer me to a privat specialist. I chose the latter.

NHS Dentist
7 Extractions and lower partial denture = £204.00


Private Dentist
Consultations (2) and private full mouth xray = £250
1 Immediate Upper Denture = £800
1 permanent Upper Denture = £1500
1 permanent Lower partial denture = £900

For an Aussie perspective, I had mine done in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.  I didn't get them through a/my dentist.  I saw a highly regarded prosthodontist in Brisbane which is about 2 hours away from where I live.  I'll try and break things down as much as I can remember.  I have full upper and lower dentures with 3 implants retaining the lower one, and had all my teeth extracted with the exception of 3 teeth already removed and one wisdom tooth already removed.

The total cost for all my work was about $24000.  I have very basic private health cover and they paid out about $4000 of that cost, as well as covering my surgical theatre costs for two surgeries and one overnight stay in a private hospital (these costs are not included in that $24000 amount), but only some of the costs of the maxofacial surgeon who did my extractions, shaping to my bone and insertion of the 3 lower implants.

I know the dentures were about $7500, the hard reline to both of them was about $1500, and the 3 implants were about $10000 of that cost.  I think the process I went through was quite different to many people, and I think it's worth a bit of an explanation, as it wasn't too bad a way to do things, with only one thing I think I'd change.

I had one initial surgery to remove all the teeth in the back half of my mouth (leaving the 6 front teeth top and bottom), and the two rearward implants in my bottom jaw.  Then that is left for 6 months to heal, with just the implant abutments put in place in the meantime.  Then 6 months later impressions are made, and then I'm off for the second surgery to have the rest of my teeth removed and the middle lower implant placed.  I wake up with my dentures in mouth, including the bottom one retained by the back two implants.
After a period the front implant is opened up and the healing abutment placed and my prosthodontist makes space in the lower denture for the abutment to rest.
After 6 months my full reline is done and the third implant is now fully hooked in.
What I liked about this was I still had teeth for a while in the front, I learned to eat with them pretty well actually.  While I have dentures in straight after the second surgery, the back half of my mouth has had 6 months to heal already.
What I wish I'd done was actually wait 12 months to have the reline done!  The rear half of my mouth had had 12 months to heal, and shrink etc and they fit well there, but my upper is very loose at the front now and I feel I need another reline done to fix that.  I need a lot of adhesive to fill the gap.  If I'd waited 12 month for the reline I think now (3 years later) it would fit better.

I see Dr Garry Smith in Brisbane and couldn't recommend him highly enough.  He rocks!

While here, I'll also explain how our public hospital system works with dentures (at least where I live, near Toowoomba in Queensland); because my wife is on a disabled pension I had the opportunity to have the dentures done for free through our public hospital system, yet opted not to (we waited till my wife received an insurance payout to have mine done). 
Firstly, I couldn't have had the implants done for my lower denture and personally I think that is life changing!  I have zero issues with my bottom denture, cept for the very rare unclipping of it if I eat something a bit tough or something.   If you can afford at least implants to retain your lower denture I highly recommend it!
Secondly, the process takes a long long time, and I felt it would be pretty confronting! (of course, if you have no option you have no option).   I was told the waiting period to start the process through our public hospital system was 2 to 3 years!  Then what they do is remove your teeth in 4 sessions with a 3 month gap between each session.  They would remove them quadrant by quadrant (so say, upper left half, then upper right half, etc etc).  This is just under a local, and I know my teeth don't come out easily; I've literally had my dentist knee on my chest and nurses holding my head to get one out before!  So this wasn't something I was keen on, let alone the 9+ months the whole removal takes.  Then you wait 6 months with no teeth at all and then they will make your denture.  It's still better than nothing, but not a process I was keen to go through; and not with a job where I deal with customers!

Sorry this is so long winded, I don't do anything by halves!  :)

Hi Goughy
Wow  You need an editor
I have to read this again to try to understand it
It's not only the money I really don;t understand what you had done here and why.

Let me try to figure out what you  did on the upper arch first.   
This is a removable denture?
secured   by implants??  Is it a clip on?? 
Is it completed yet???
Please explain just the upper arch to me

Yeah, sorry bout that. War and Peace it's not, but it's about as long! No implants on upper, it's a normal removable denture. Had all my upper teeth removed, plus some removal and reshaping of bone. I've had them about 3 years now.

Oh The top is a complete denture  Thank you for that
The bottom denture is a clip on with 3 implants
Where are the 3 placed??
Are 2 in the middle on each side more toward the back??
Where is the  3 rd one??
Do the clips work well?
When will you be finished? or is it completed now??

Yes, the lower has 3 implants. One is right about the centre of the front, with the other 2 a fair way around towards the back of each side. Say at least 2⁄3 of the way around each side. The clips work really well, and I only have a light strength clip in place on them so it's not that hard for me to take them out. It bay provides a very stable platform for the denture to work. He also said that having the 3 spread like that will also help with reducing the amount of shrinkage of my jaw over time. I had that all done at the same time as the upper, so 3 years ago now.

There is an excellent group of inplant dentists in New York

All they do are implants and they are good because they crank  them out and have had top training

They charge only $1,700 an implant and sometimes on sale it  is  $1,500

I live in USA - Oklahoma - State insurance is funded to low income individuals and their families for medical needs including health, dental, eyes, there are limitations to what the insurance will pay for but in my case my teeth were causing me other health issues so therefor the state covered the cost of all the extractions for me. Basically it was deemed medically necessary

That's awesome! You are very lucky as far as the state paying for extractions, Jennifer. So happy you got that opportunity. TN is much more strict on dental for the state insurance paying anything over the age of 18. When I was pregnant with my youngest 8 years ago, I had to pay for wisdom teeth extractions out of pocket myself. Then a year later was diagnosed with form of lukema cytosol and although the medicine I had to take to survive destroyed my teeth , the state deemed dental for over age of 18 was not covered so we worked hard and saved and built our credit so 5 years later it was possible for me to get my teeth fixed. I am blessed and happy with my new mouh just got to get through the initial stages as well. I am on day 6 from my extractions and sores are hideous from improper fitting dentures. I an going in the morning first thing to try and get some relief. I cannot return to work until this is corrected for sure. I talk alot at work and right now I cannot speak more than a few words before I am in severe pain from the sores and dentures rubbing them. Not fun!

Hi Jennifer from Oklahoma,
I am so  pleased to hear that state insurance assisted you
Some states are not so generous I am afraid

In New York we have Medicaid which is also State assisted,
but unfortunatly very few dentists will accept or 
participate with Medicaid to the detrement of the people
that are on Medicaid
So if you are on Medicaid in New York and need Dental work
you are better off going to a hospital with a dental department
or to a Dental college for the best dental care

Thats amazing some states do offer assistant! I struggled too many years thinking I may get some help from some group or program in TN and that never happened. I would still be waiting. My husband and I had to take things into our own hands. So glad Jennifer was able to do this in her state. More states should participate for health concerns with dental issues

Hi Elisha Wilbur

New York has a very good Medicaid program for recipiants
It's medical coverage is great and although its Dental is  good
it has such  low reimbursement to the dentist that almost no Dentist
takes it and the ones that do take it are frequently  not the best.
However as I said they still can get excellent dental treatment if they go to a
Hospital dental clinic or to a Dental College/
In New York City  there are a number
of excellent college dental programs

I only qualify myself the state assisted insurance because I have 3 children who qualify and single parent. They do have some strict rules against dental if you are over the age of 18 but if you see a dentist who deems your dental work medically necessary for your health then they will cover it for you, I was very blessed to be able to get this done because prior to finding out my state insurance would cover the extractions I was looking at around 5,000 for extractions, visits, dentures and all. 
and Elisha i feel your pain, I havent worn my dentures in a couple days, I am afraid what my dentist is going to say tomorrow morning when I go to see him, but the dental sores I have are unbarable and i just cant wear them.

Why would your dentist expect you to wear dentures that were so painful??
Ask him  to help you and make adjustments so you can wear them!!

I think all should be better tomorrow after I go see the dentist, it will only be my second time going in for adjustments but something has to be done so that I can even put the top denture in my mouth, and yes my kids have been a great help as well, making me soup and instant mashed potatoes and always making sure I am okay :) they even allowed me a short nap today.. they are great big helpers.

I read this son thee internet about implants:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Although you might get sticker shock when you find out how much a dental implant costs, it helps to look at the big picture. While implants cost more upfront than dentures, you are less likely to need to replace them. The success rate of implants is as high as 95 percent.

Meanwhile, dentures tend to wear down over time. They usually need to be replaced every few years, which adds to their total cost. You might pay $2,000 for dentures one year, then need to pay another $2,000 to get a new set in a few years.

Dentures  require Fixodent and more expensive adhesives so add that  on

If you skip the temporary denture cost you might be able to afford implants which are so much better for your health and jaw and life

You can take out a new Discover credit card for no interest the first year and pay off your implants by the month  If you skip the temporary denture you will save a good amount toward the implants for an over denture

It really depends on who is doing the work and what state you live in. In Idaho we charge $600-$1250 per plate. It doesn’t matter if it’s a immediate (temporary) or a permanent (final) denture. The most important thing I stress to all of my patients is to make sure the clinic makes everything on site and gives free adjustments. Everyone is different and requires a different amount of adjustments until they’re comfortable. No two cases are the same so just because your friend had dentures made and didn’t need any adjustments doesn’t mean you won’t too. Be patient and ask as many questions as possible. Clinics that are vague generally don’t want you to know very much so you don’t expect very much. Make sure you feel really comfortable with the clinic and their answers before you make a decision. Oh, and last but not least get more than one opinion before you make a decision. I hope this helps. If you want more pricing and cost information you can visit our website at www.newsmile4me.com

Skip the temporary denture especially  for the bottom jaw and  put that money you save toward a denture attached to 2 implants (an over denture) and you will  be so much more comfortable and happier and your jaw will not shrink and you can eat that  much better and the dentures will be over dentures and so much more comfortable  and you will be  so much happier

what i've learned about affordable dentures is:  they're not all the same-like any chain-they're only as good as the people who work there-check reviews of the one you're going to-also-the 'professionals' working there could have changed-never know who you're going to get.

I live in Michigan. But got all my work done in Northern Indiana. I only have Medicaid at this point and the only dental office I can visit is a clinic here, which wanted to save my teeth. I'd already spent countless hours in a chair to "save" teeth so I opted to go to a dentist office I really love and pay totally out of pocket.

My dentist office offers Care credit and in office financing if you're denied the care credit. You have to have 25% of the total cost down before they do any work and then you can set up monthly payments. Without this option I wouldn't have been able to get my dentures.

My total cost would have been 4800 but I had a $990 credit on my account from previous work that wasn't accomplished. Also my dentist was running a buy one denture get one 50% off.

Without the discounts

Top Denture: $1250
Bottom Denture: $1250
17 extractions + conscious sedation and all surgery costs was $1200.
X-Ray: $100
Post-Op Kit: $50

The consultations are always free, as well as any adjustments. I get 4 free soft relines (after 4 if needed they're $50) and 1 hard reline.

Anyone in Northern Indiana or southern Michigan I HIGHLY recommend my dentist. They're wonderful and will work with you. There are 4 dentists that work their two offices. They'll be opening a third soon. I've personally met three of the four dentist and they're all absolutely wonderful. This has been my dentist office for over 8 years now. I used to be terrified of the dentist until I started coming here.

I paid $2900 for 17 extractions and a full set of immediate, ultimate (permanent) dentures and another set of ultimate dentures whenever I am ready for them within the next 10 years. This includes lifetime free adjustments on both and a free reline on both.

It's more like a denture clinic. There are several denists on site and they have been excellent. I am one month in and have only had one adjustment at week 2. I cannot brag enough about this office. Thanks.

For my full dentures, I went to Aspen Dental.  Though reviews are mixed, my location had very good reviews and I personally am very satisfied.  They offer everything from general dentistry to implants and dentures.  From day one, I never felt pressured, and was kept well informed.  Here are the approximate prices for full dentures, as well as some additional information (Note: Look for coupons, they can often be found online for discounts).  Keep in mind prices change as well, and may vary depending on your location.
  • Custom heat-cured dentures ~ $1300 per plate ($2600 for both) - 7 year warranty
  • Custom cold-pour dentures ~$1100 per plate ($2200 for both) - 3 year warranty
  • Classic cold-pour dentures ~ $500 per plate ($1000 for both) - 1 year warranty
  • Basic cold-pour dentures ~ $300 per plate ($600 for both) - 6 month warranty
Heat-cured dentures are the most expensive, but also the most durable and least porous (stain resistant).  There is nothing wrong with cold-pour dentures, and they are the most common and can look just as good!  In my case, I went with heat-cured because I wanted the most durability and had time to save up for them.  I have an anxious jaw clenching habit, so durability was very important to me.

Keep in mind the above prices are simply for the dentures, not the extractions.  Their prices are fairly average though it was quite high in my case as I had to have some rather extensive work done to my jaw, as well as a slew of sutures.  Aspen Dental isn't the cheapest place, but personally I felt I "got what I paid for" in the end.  Everything is done in the office, and they have an on-site denture lab.

1st set - Dixieland dental - Dothan Al - $365.00 full set, top & bottom - Economy standard set
2nd set - Dothan Cosmetic Dentistry- Dothan Al - $1600.00 full set, top & bottom - Deluxe premium set
 I have bc/bs of Texas, but my insurance only covers a portion of this. Not the dentures, but the adjustments, x-rays and such.
The dentist office offered Care credit and I qualified for it.
I have been going back & forth to this office for almost a year now cause they have to keep adjusting them. To start with, too bulky and I couldn't talk with them in.
I'm having to go tomorrow for yet another adjustment.. still can't talk and the dentures are not staying, really loose and when I chew, they move up & down causing mouth sores inside to develop. These are also hurting more to the back area and caused my mouth to swell on the right side, giving me a headache... Now.. I do want implants, but I want the cheapest ones, but are good implants. It will be next year of course before I can get them. My insurance will not pay for them.. Care credit will only give us a $2,000.00 limit.

I went with an established Dentist who wasn't the cheapest or the most expensive. Twenty extractions, 8 total implants, temporary dentures for three months , then implant supported upper and lower dentures $31500 minus $1600 available insurance $29900 . My dentist is out of Tyngsboro Mass . He suggested permanent Hybridge for $16000 more but I just felt more comfortable with the overdentures. Looking forward 08/08 @ 8 plus 8 implants if this isn't fate nothing is.
