Dentist: Affordable DentistType: Prieium
This was my second top plate and had to have all teeth pulled for bottom plate. They charge you upfront for all services done. Includes two sets of dentures a temp for few months and a permanat to be picked up after healing. I broke my bottom plate a few months after i got them they repaired it free. Then in a few more months when the repair failed they recast it again, also for free. I have had the set for a few years now about time for a refit wear well never had any problems. I have heard a lot of people complain about the lower quality sets but i went with the top they offer.

I just got a set of dentures upper and bottom 2 weeks ago from Monarch dental. So, far everything is going fine just can't wait until I'm completely healed. But, I received temporary dentures and in 6 months I will receive my permanent dentures. I had a choice of what type of teeth and color, and my goodness they look GOOD! nobody can tell they are dentures. Yes, I would have rather got implants but couldn't afford them...but so far I have no problems and love my new look!

Dentist: ALLCAREType: Upper denture
This co. was new in our area and because of my diabetes my upper teeth had become rapidly infected and I was told I'd have to get them all extracted, and get temporary dentures till swelling went down so I could have the final set; everything looked good, but in reality, I sat in their office 3 and sometimes 4 hrs. Waiting for whatever with only 1 dentist between 4 patients, and I must have had 3-4 different dentists while I was there cause it appeared there was a big turn around in the entire office over and over, so I couldn't get to know anybody; for the final set, the last dentist I saw quickly started shaving away at the acrylic rapidly without being aware that she was not making them to fit for me at all because she had wiggled them down far too much, so they always get stuff down inside wherever she shaved it too low, it makes it so uncomfortable; not only that this dentist kept on manhandling my mouth and ripping the delicate tissue that bled. I never returned, they closed.

Seriously people pay like $40,000?
Amount: $0.00 total
Posted by: Henry Dunnigan in Manford, CT.Posted: March 12th, 2011 10:03PM
That is crazy, I'm only 20, but messed up my top teeth and my bottom ones are rediculously crooked. I've been thinking about getting dentures for a while, and know a few people that have gotten them. With insurance they all payed less than $10,000 for their dentures, one was free, but cheaper quality. You people paying like $40,000 are getting robbed, either you have no insurance, which is INSANE considering you could get insurance and just pay a monthly fee to save thousands. OR your dentist are literally robbing you, and someone stealing $40,000 from someone who is most likely elderly deserves a lot more than just going to jail, shame on you... if someone I knew got robbed like that, especially my grandparents, I don't know what I'd do. IF YOUR DENTIST SAYS IT'S SOMETHING RIDICULOUS LIKE THAT, CALL AROUND AND SEE ABOUT OTHERS, USE COMMON SENSE PEOPLE. MY LAST DENTIST CHARGED NEARLY FOUR TIMES MORE TO JUST CLEAN MY TEETH THAN THE LAST, THAT'S WHY I CHANGED!!

Teeth should be included in health insurance. The ADA has some big lobbying to keep it from becoming so. Since when are your teeth, jawbone, etc. not part of your body? They can also lead to other physical/psycological issues. If they were not a part of your overall physical self, why are you born with them. Total scam on the Amerikan public!

WHEN I NEEDED DENTURES I WAS TOLD I WOULD HAVE TO GO WITHOUT TEETH FOR 6 MONTHS IF I WANTED PERMENENT DENTURES. I WAS NOT WILLING TO DO THAT SO I GOT THE TEMPORARY ONES, WHICH I WAS TOLD WOULD LAST FOR A LONG TIME. ITS BEEN 2 1/2 YRS. AND THESE ARE BREAKING APART. MY INSURANCE WILL NOT PAY ON ANOTHER PAIR FOR ANOTHER 2 1/2 YRS. NOW I NEED TO PAY FOR A PAIR OUT OF POCKET. I AM TRYING TO FIND A GOOD DENTURE THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME(IF POSSIBLE). MY MOTHER HAS HAD THE SAME DENTURES SINCE SHE WAS 25 (NOW 75). WHERE ARE THESE?

Dentist: Leopold Weinstein,DDSType: Dentures
I had dentures for twenty years and the fit poorly and were loose. Plus they looked like shit! I wanted something better. I heard Dr. Leo on the radio and made a consultation appointment. He examined me and we talked. He said I had very little bone to hold the dentures and recommended implants to hold the dentures in. But I have this thing about implants and said I just wanted the dentures. He told me he would do his best but could not guarantee that they would fit any better than my last set. What he did say was he could make them look great. In fact we had a chuckle about this as he showed me pictures of other dentures he had made. Well, long story made short, I had them made. It took quite some time as he is meticulous. When I got to take them home they were great. Not only did my teeth look stunning but, they actually fit better. While they were being made my family and friends thought I'd lost my mind spending 12K for dentures but it was well worth it. I can finally be out in social circles without being self-aware, worrying how my smile looks or if my upper was going to slip out.

Ok i'm a 20 year old woman, but i'm still young.. i come from a family that have nice-LOOKING teeth, but the x rays are REPULSING! well i had a cavity that built itself up from the inside out in my jaw teeth. i didn't understand it at first, because i didn't feel it. but sooner if not later, i noticed my breath would NOT stay fresh for ANYTHING! i mean, it got so bad, that it started interfering with my life... my friends would turn away as i said "hi" but try their hardest to hide the disgust at the smell, bless them. my BOYFRIEND wouldn't kiss me because it was so bad, i'm surprised he hugged me... whereas family, they hugged me till they started saying "i'll pass on hugs this time". i got 4 ROOT CANALS! this dentist manhandled my face! he put bruises n my cheeks, and i never got any sleep because i was up all night crying and taking pain medicantions for splitting migranes from sore exposed nerves from crowns that fell out right as i walked out the door. Castle Dental is a joke! Sadist doctors!

Dentist: Dr ClayType: upper lower
Was referred by dentist at age 45. Teeth were falling out of course 1 by 1. When the first front tooth was loose I decided for full dentures. First set cost me an arm and a leg, charged everything, $18,000, at 45 I wanted a smile. Had pay for pulling of the teeth, shaving the jaw bone for smoothness, and of course the dentures itselve, $12,500. But within a month I was getting use to them and with some pepisdent they were hardly ever loose. But jaw changes during the first year and had to have new dentures again costing me $16,500. Again the dentures fit real good. I'm managing the bills for now but my son starts college and at 53 I need new dentures again and will have to find a cheaper denture. But you know I would make that same decision again about having dentures. Get it done don't let your teeth fall out one a time.

Dentist: Type: upper dentures
I had a toothache and went to allcare to extract it and replace it. They did not care about my pain. All they care about is how much money can they get from me. They have alveo on the extracted tooth for $109 even though the whole jar is $45. ALLCARE is a ripoff. They don't deserve to be called dentists. They are businees scam.

Dentist: LawsonType: upper plate
My denture was made in 2003, the upper left side hurt, and they were somewhat loose, but looked great, better than my original!, they look horrible now, crooked, all gum showing, fit terrible, they are awful, everyone agrees with me. I had to try them on in the restroom with no mirror, they told me to view them in the waiting room, with patients looking on.

Dentist: Type: Partial Dentures
I'm 27 years old now and had this work done about 5 years ago. I had about 9 teeth pulled, which I know I can't blame any dentist for. It's pretty genetic-my Mom had the same problem at a young age. However, he also recommended pulling a tooth that had NO infection or need to be pulled except where it was placed. But braces could have fixed this problem...but no now I have an upper partial that I absolutely hate more then anything...I'm so afraid of it falling out-I can barely eat normally. I cut everything up just so I don't have to bite into it. Now I have NO dental insurance and can't afford to just throw thousands of dollars into my mouth.I never got a lower partial which is causing my teeth to gap. It's terrible to even admit, but I've never felt so ugly before in my life. I certainly don't want point fingers or blame anyone. I just wish there was something that could be done that would make me feel better about myself and take away the headaches that this partial causes. I've pushed back my wedding numerous times b/c I don't want to ruin pictures and I just feel very uncomfortable. I often find myself feeling really upset about how I look and feel. Sometimes I try to tell myself to suck it up and that it could be worse. But unfortunatly, it doesn't work. Some may think I'm being vain...but I honestly can't help the way I feel. I lose sleep over it too...I'm constantly worrying that the partial will break/fall out. It's almost ruining my life.

Dentist: Donald SwoverlandType: normal
Had to have all my remaining teeth removed, by a surgeon who replaced bone in the hope that I could eventually afford mini implants. The normal dentist, fitted dentures, I stupidly put it on Care Credit, believing that eventually I would be able to get more work done, he kept calling the dentures temporary...now 2 yrs down the road when I called them they now say that the $10,000 was the price of the dentures, and so I am not entitled to a refund or any more work.
I am left paying off the $10,000 to care credit at 29% interest rate. I am not happy, broke and still experiencing discomfort from these super expensive dentures...|Be very careful..
