What are Neuromuscular Dentures?
- Economy Dentures are the “made in the same day” type of dentures that you see advertised on TV, newspaper and on the radio. These are very basic dentures. Sometimes I jokingly say “They come in small, medium, and large, and the patient gets the size that fits the closest”. Now please don’t think that I am against economy dentures… they are a great solution for some people who otherwise wouldn’t have any teeth at all. It’s just that some people can’t live with economy dentures because they either don’t fit well enough, or they don’t look good enough. The cost of economy dentures usually runs around $1000.
- Traditional Dentures are the main type of dentures that are made by most general dentists. They will fit better than economy dentures and they will usually look better than economy dentures. There is huge variation in how good they look and how good they fit, and this is usually due to the experience of the dentist who is making them. Generally, the cost of good traditional dentures is around $4000 – $6000.
