Dentures

Missing most or all of your natural teeth can make simple things like eating and speaking difficult.

Custom-made dentures can replace your missing teeth so you can eat the foods you love, speak clearly, and smile confidently.

Dr. David Casagrande in Billings, MT, and Boise, ID, is an experienced prosthodontist who can restore your oral function with dentures.

A Closer Look At the Benefits of Dental Implants

Denture implants

When you lose a tooth, the jaw loses the stimulation the tooth roots once provided. This leads to jawbone atrophy. Dental implants are titanium posts that provide the jaw with the stimulation needed to halt and prevent bone loss. They are the only restorative dentistry treatment that can do so.

Implants also provide maximum stability for dentures. The implants will keep your denture firmly in place without denture adhesive. This eliminates the possibility of your denture slipping when you eat or speak.

Dr. Casagrande explains the benefits of an overdenture, a type of implant-supported denture that is removable yet provides the same bone-saving benefits as other implant-supported restorations.

Denture Costs

On average, dentures cost between $2,500 and $3,000 at our Boise, ID, and Billings, MT, dental practice, but prices can vary. There are many factors that can determine the final cost of your dentures, including:

Type of Denture

A partial denture typically costs less than a full denture, as less material is needed. Because implant-supported dentures also require more materials and treatment time, they tend to cost more than removable dentures.

Preparatory Treatment

Preparatory treatments, like teeth cleaning, gum disease care, and implant placement will increase your total costs.

Insurance Coverage

Dental insurance coverage can reduce or eliminate your out-of-pocket expenses. We work with most insurance plans to help make treatment more affordable. 

Our Billings and Boise dental practice accepts financing through CareCredit® and LendingClub® to help those without insurance or to cover costs that your insurance may not cover. These options allow you to split the cost of your treatment into affordable monthly payments.

Consultation

During your initial consultation at our Billings and Boise dentistry practice, your dentist will examine your existing teeth, gums, and oral structures and discuss your goals to determine if dentures are right for you. 

Preparatory Treatments

If you need preparatory treatments such as extractions or dental implant placement, they will be performed first. You will be given time to heal. In some cases, dentures can be placed immediately after implant placement. Your dentist will discuss this with you ahead of time. 

Impressions

Dr. Casagrande will take impressions of your mouth to craft your custom denture. These impressions will be sent to our trusted lab, which typically completes dentures in about two to three weeks.

Fitting

Once your dentures arrive at our dental practice, you will have a fitting appointment. This allows your dentist to ensure there is no gum irritation and that your dentures fit and function properly and comfortably. You can then enjoy your new smile!

Denture FAQs

Do dentures hurt?

No, your dentures should not hurt. If you experience any pain or gum irritation, call our dental office in Billings or Boise. Dr. Casagrande can make adjustments to ensure you are comfortable and your dentures function properly. 

How long will my dentures last?

It is important to remember that dentures will wear over time and eventually need to be replaced. However, dentures are durable. With proper care and regular dental checkups, they can last for 15 years or longer.  

I have dental anxiety/phobia. Can you still help?

Yes! Our Montana and Idaho dental practice offers sedation options so even the most anxious patient can comfortably receive the care they need.
