Full Mouth Dentures

There are two types of full mouth dentures--immediate and complete. Here is a list of some features of each:

Immediate Dentures
  • Given immediately following tooth extractions
  • Typically temporary solution due to the fit
  • Mold of mouth for immediate dentures taken before tooth extractions
  • Same as complete dentures except for the fit. This fit is not as accurate.
  • Can be kept if the fit is right
Complete Dentures
  • Require a 6- to 8-week waiting period while the dentures are made
  • Long-lasting replacement for teeth
  • Mold of mouth is taken after tooth extractions and healing process
  • Same as immediate dentures except for the fit. This fit is more accurate

What to Know About Lab Fees

There may also be a lab fee cost on your bill. This cost covers the process of making the dentures and may or may not be on your bill. It will depend on the dental lab your dentist uses. Lab fees can be anywhere between $100-$250. These prices are not discounted because lab fees are a third-party expense that the dentist incurs.

Ask your dentist if you will incur the additional cost of the crown being made and how much that will be so you are informed beforehand.
