Different Types of Dentures
(and Costs)

Different types of dentures:

There are different types of dentures available to suit different needs:

  • Complete or full dentures – Replace all of the teeth in the upper or lower jaw. Used when all natural teeth are missing.
  • Partial dentures – Replace one or more missing teeth but not the full set. Used when only some natural teeth are missing. Removable or fixed.
  • Implant-supported dentures – Dentures secured in the mouth with dental implants for added stability and support. The implants help prevent bone loss. Also known as snap-in dentures. 
  • Hybrid dentures – These are a type of permanent denture that consists of a metal framework that contains porcelain artificial teeth. The framework is securely screwed into multiple dental implants that have been surgically placed in the jawbone. This type of denture cannot be removed (unless you go to your dentist). 
  • Overdenture – This is a type of removable partial denture that fits over one or more remaining natural teeth for extra support and retention. 
  • Temporary or immediate dentures – Inexpensive short-term dentures placed immediately after tooth extraction.
  • Flexible partial dentures – Made of soft, flexible resin that is more comfortable. Conform better to gums.

The right type of denture (false teeth) for you depend on how many natural teeth are missing, personal preferences, and budget. Some key factors dentists consider are:

  • How much support is needed
  • Ability to adapt to removable dentures
  • Amount of bone loss in the jaw
  • If implants can be placed for support
  • If a fixed or removable solution is preferred

Different types provide different benefits in terms of function, comfort and aesthetics. Consulting a dentist helps determine the right denture solution for each patient’s unique needs and preferences.

Cost is also an important consideration. Here’s an overview of the different types of dentures and their typical costs:

  • Full dentures – replace all teeth in upper and/or lower jaw. Cost range: $300-$3000
  • Partial dentures – replace some missing teeth and can be removable or fixed. Removable partials cost $300-$1500. Fixed partial dentures usually cost $1000-$3000.
  • Implant-supported dentures – use dental implants to provide stability and support. They can be snap-on dentures ($500-$2000) or fixed hybrid dentures ($1000-$7000). The implants themselves can cost $1000-$3000 each.
  • Flexible dentures – made of thermoplastic resin that flexes with the mouth. Cost is $1000-$2500, more expensive than conventional dentures.
  • Temporary dentures – inexpensive interim dentures ($300-$500) worn while permanent dentures are being made.
  • Denture relines – improve fit by reshaping base. Hard reline is $150-$300, soft reline $300-$600.
    Denture repairs – range from $50 to repair a crack up to $350+ for replacing multiple teeth.

Costs vary based on the dentist/denturist, materials used, patient’s needs, insurance coverage, and local dental rates. Discuss options with your dentist to determine the most affordable denture solution for your budget. Many offer payment plans.
