If you need dentures, you likely have a lot of questions about which type of denture is right for you and how much dentures cost. Unfortunately, this isn’t an easy question to answer online, so the best way to understand the right denture option for your needs and how much you can expect to pay for it is to schedule an in-person consultation. Below, we explain some of the different types of dentures and provide price ranges for each.
What Do Dentures Cost in Stuart, FL?

Complete Conventional Dentures
Cost: $ 2750 per arch
Conventional dentures are the most common type of denture, and likely what you envision when you think about what dentures look like. A complete conventional denture involves extracting all of the teeth on one or both arches. After 8 to 12 weeks of healing time, you will be fitted for your dentures and they will be fabricated for you.
Complete Immediate Dentures
Cost: $ 3000-$4000 per arch
Immediate dentures are prefabricated prior to you having your teeth extracted. If you don’t currently have dentures to wear while your new dentures are being fabricated, or if you would feel self-conscious without teeth during the healing time after extraction, an immediate denture is a solution to consider. It can be worn the same day your teeth are extracted because it has a soft reline material called tissue conditioner that adapts to your jaw as it heals. Once healing is complete, a more permanent hard reline will be performed.
Cost: $ 6000 – $8350
Over-dentures can be worn over existing healthy teeth or dental implants for improved stability and retention. A denture attachment apparatus is often used for this type of denture.
Cost: $2750 – $ 3000
There are many types of partial dentures, but what they all have in common is that they replace only some missing teeth on an arch, rather than replacing all of them. A partial denture is different from a fixed dental bridge because it is meant to be removed every night and then put back in in the morning.
Implant-Supported Fixed Complete Prostheses
Cost: $7000-9000 – $
Dental implants offer patients a stable restoration for missing teeth that prevents and even reverses bone loss in the jaw. A fixed complete prosthesis is essentially a denture that is permanently affixed to dental implants. Unlike a traditional denture, you will not remove your prosthesis; only a dentist can do this.
Cost: $ 19000 – $ 30000
Another option for patients who want a restoration that is supported by dental implants is an implant-retained denture. This type of denture is often known as a snap-on or snap-in denture because they snap onto attachments on your dental implants. You’ll remove them each night for cleaning and to give your gums a rest, then put them back in when you wake up in the morning. Many patients appreciate that implant-retained dentures feel more stable and secure than a traditional denture.
