Research shows that once the teeth are removed, the jawbone begins to shrink and change shape. Dentures should be checked every year, relined as needed for fit, and replaced every 5-8 years to keep them fitting properly.
If you have dental insurance, it may include coverage for dentures. This typically means that up to 50% of the cost of dentures is covered. However, regular deductibles and co-pays still apply. Additionally, there are often stipulations on what procedures are covered and how often you can replace the dentures (full or partial), typically 5, 7 or 10-year clauses.
We understand that this can be confusing, which is why we recommend that you reach out to us so we can help you consider all your options. We can help you navigate your specific insurance policy and provide procedures and products that fit within your budget.
