Denture Cost and Treatment Dynamics
When Low Cost Treatments becomes High Cost Dentistry
There is a larger group of patients however, that have difficulties with mass produced products. The problems encountered are typically related not to the denture product (unless cosmetics are important) but rather the health and condition of the existing teeth and jawbone at the time of treatment.
Diagnostic Service DifferencesLoose dentures, excessive bleeding, painful biting, excessive use of adhesives, speech problems, migraine headaches, tmj occlusal dysfunction, sinus issues, amplified overbite (horse teeth appearance), unsuccessful - multiple relines, and seemingly uncurable gag reflex issues are more often than not caused by hard and soft tissue characteristics that are usually not addressed.
Post Treatment Denture ExpensesThe patients who discover, after the fact, that newly emerging dental problems similar to those mentioned in the preceding paragraph can be difficult or impossible to treat.... and involve more expense.
Cost savings in terms of money initially saved can be outstripped by treatments that weren't provided during critical stages of treatment. The cost in terms of lost dental function or rapid deterioration of jawbone and soft tissue, however, is more difficult to endure.
Achieving Low PricesPricing differences for all of the different products reflect the type and quality of materials used, fabrication and adjustment time and the amount of time invested by the doctor in articulation studies, fitting adjustments needed to create the amount of change (cosmetic and functional) requested by the patient.
In general terms, the greatest savings occurs with minimizing the time elements which affect the impression process, fabrication process and final fitting process. For patients who are not the statistical average, the time savings can result in a denture with substandard fit, thereby creating more bone loss and soft tissue damage, possibly rendering the denture unusable.
The degree of focus on diagnostic and service procedures outlined above during the primary phase of treatment (removal of disease and tissues both hard and soft) determines to what extent patients will encounter the "typical" denture problems.
