How to Afford Dentures


Did you know that more than 35 million Americans don’t have any teeth? On top of this, over 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. While these numbers are expected to grow in the coming years, they make one point very clear: tooth loss is common, and it happens for a number of reasons.

According to the CDC, “Older Americans with the poorest oral health are those who are economically disadvantaged, lack insurance, and are members of racial and ethnic minorities. Being disabled, homebound, or institutionalized also increases the risk of poor oral health.” For this reason, dental offices like Primary Dental Care of Garden Grove find it incredibly important to be affordable dentures dentist that patients can turn to.

While it might be tempting to just “live with it” when it comes to missing teeth, it’s important to remember that missing teeth can often lead to more serious (and expensive) problems.

While patients typically would jump at the opportunity to have their “normal” smile back, many of them hold off because they’re not aware of how affordable dentures can really be.  Here in the Garden Grove and Fountain Valley area, the reality is no different, bu there’s hope! While affordable dentures dentists like Primary Dental Care offer dentures staring at $1200, there are also a variety of solutions that can help you afford dentures. These include:

Payment Plans

If you can’t afford the one-time price of dentures, nearly every dentist will agree to installing dentures with a payment plan to help make the procedure more affordable. More often than not, many times — all you need to do is ask.

A Health Insurance Credit Card

You might be saying, “No, No, No” not another credit card. However, there are a few different health-related credit cards out there with long, introductory 0% APR periods, that enable to you gradually pay off your procedure without paying any interest. The only trick here is to make sure you pay off your procedure before the introductory period ends (this is usually between 1 and 2 years).

Dental Insurance

You might be saying, “The whole reason I searched for ‘how to afford dentures'” is because I DON’T HAVE DENTAL INSURANCE. But remember: it might still be an option. Even if you don’t have dental insurance right now, many dental insurance plans can help you manage the cost of getting dentures. Just because you don’t have the money up-front, you shouldn’t be worried about restoring your smile and your confidence. With low monthly premiums available, dental insurance doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg.
