Denture Clinic in Baltimore, MD

Dentures are used when a person is missing all or most of their natural teeth. This could be the result of an injury or declining oral health. Dentures are a great way to still enjoy the benefits of healthy, natural teeth where chewing is a natural and fluid motion without pain or complication. They are easy to use and offer a fast and effective solution to overcoming severe tooth loss.

Dentures are prosthetic teeth secured to a gum-colored base. They can be secured with or without dental implants, it’s best to visit with us to discuss all available options and determine the best solution for your needs.

  • How much do dentures cost?

    At Hamilton Family Dentistry, our dentures cost between $200 to $2,500, depending on whether you need partial or full dentures, and what they’re made of. See our full breakdown of denture costs.

    Dental insurance may cover up to 50% of the cost, potentially reducing your out-of-pocket expenses. However, costs can also be influenced by additional needs such as tooth extractions, the cost of immediate dentures, and follow-up visits for adjustments.

  • What are the different types of dentures?

    There are several types of dentures available, each catering to different needs and preferences:

    1. Full dentures: These replace all teeth in the upper or lower jaw. They rest on the gums and are used when all natural teeth are missing.
    2. Partial dentures: These are used when some natural teeth remain. Partial dentures fill the gaps created by missing teeth and prevent other teeth from shifting.
    3. Immediate dentures: These are inserted immediately after the removal of the remaining teeth. They offer the advantage of not being without teeth during the healing period but may require more adjustments once healing is complete.
    4. Overdentures: These are an option for some people; they fit over a small number of remaining natural teeth or implants. The natural teeth must be prepared to provide stability and support for the denture.
    5. Implant-supported dentures: These dentures are anchored to dental implants, which are surgically placed in the jawbone. This type offers more stability than traditional dentures.
    6. Snap-in dentures: These are characterized by attachments that secure to existing implants or anchor points in the jaw. They’re known for their ease of removal and high stability.
    7. Economy dentures: These are the most cost-effective option but are generic in fit and appearance, which might not provide the most comfortable or aesthetically pleasing outcome.

    Each type of denture has pros and cons, and the best choice depends on individual needs, oral health status, and budget. Schedule an appointment to discuss your options!

  • How long does it take to get dentures?

    After getting teeth extracted, it usually takes around six months to receive permanent dentures. This healing period allows your mouth to adjust and recover properly.

    However, you don’t have to go without teeth during this time as you can opt for immediate or “same day” dentures. These temporary dentures are adjusted as your mouth heals to ensure a comfortable fit until you’re ready for your permanent set of dentures.
