Denture price can vary greatly, depending on the type of dentures fitted and the dentist who performs the work. Cheap dentures usually cost around £300, but dentures for this price are likely to be of poor quality and not last very long. Cosmetic dentures are very expensive as time is spent is making them look very realistic. The cost of dentures that are cosmetic can be around £700.
Care for Dentures
Dentures need to be cared for properly, to prevent mouth problems, sores, infections and bad breath.
The most important thing in denture care is to keep your dentures cleaned. Dentures should be rinsed in water after meals. All loose food debris needs to be removed. Dentures need to be brushed just like natural teeth. They can be brushed with an abrasive toothpaste or denture paste. They can also be soaked in a solvent or detergent. Abrasive cleaners should be avoided. The denture should be rinsed with water after soaking.
Good dental hygiene also needs to be practiced on the gums and any remaining teeth. Gums should be cleaned daily. You can use a soft toothbrush or a washcloth. You should also continue to see your dentist, who can check your denture and check your gums and remaining teeth. Your denture will need to be checked regularly, to ensure it still fits well and does not need any denture repair.
Possible Health Risks
Dentures have sometimes been linked to oral cancer. It seems to be more likely among people who have dentures that are not fitted properly. The dentures themselves are unlikely to cause cancer, but particles of alcohol and tobacco can become trapped inside the dentures, next to the gums. When dentures are fitted properly, the chances of them leading to oral cancer are very rare.
Complete or partial dentures can be of great benefit to people who have lost all or most of their teeth. When getting dentures, make sure you go to a qualified dentist, who is experienced in the fitting of dentures. Remember that cheap dentures will not be as well-fitting or last as long. Good affordable dentures, which do not compromise on quality, are the best choice for most people.
Patients that prefer to have a permanent solution, and thus do not wish to remove their dentures at night will be presented with different alternatives that might be a better solution for their unique needs. Call and discuss with Dr Ahmed.
