As with any dental procedure, the price of dentures and dental implants is hard to estimate without an in-person consultation. In general, how much dentures and dental implants cost depends on several factors, such as the type of dentures you go for or the number of implants needed. Costs for any extra procedures needed to prepare for dental implants, such as tooth extractions, also need to be taken into account. At Hillhurst Denture Clinic, however, our fees are up to 10% cheaper than the Alberta Dental Fee Guide and you should typically expect to pay anywhere between $1,000 and $5,000 for your dentures or dental implants.
Seniors may be eligible for denture or dental implant funding through the Alberta Dental and Optical Assistance for Seniors program. Get in touch with us or call Alberta Supports directly at 1-800-644-9992 to check your eligibility. Your dentures and dental implants may also be covered by your insurance if you’ve taken out a private insurance policy. In this case, we can direct bill your insurance company (if eligible) after obtaining a preauthorization.
The best candidates for dentures are people who have multiple missing teeth, sensitive teeth, or need tooth extraction due to extensive tooth decay. Whether you need full or partial dentures depends on your specific circumstances, how many teeth need replacing, and the location of your missing teeth. Whatever the case, a consultation with a professional denturist is always your best bet to find out if you’re a suitable candidate for dentures.
Practically anyone who has missing teeth, but a healthy jawbone and gums, is a suitable candidate for dental implants. Just like with dentures, the best way to find out if you’re a good candidate for dental implants is to book a consultation. Your denturist may then perform a comprehensive examination, including X-rays and jaw impressions, to determine the most appropriate option for you.
At Hillhurst Denture Clinic, we understand that every patient has specific dental needs. For this reason, it’s hard to give a general, blanket estimate of what dentures or dental implants cost.
