Fact 12:
All dentures are not created equal. If you look for the lowest price, you’ll get what you pay for.

In most U.S. states, only a dental professional is qualified to provide denture services.1 Before prescribing a denture, a dental professional will review your health history, perform a thorough oral examination and carefully measure and prepare your mouth for your dentures. Dentists work closely with reputable dental laboratories, where trained technicians make your dentures to match your dental professional's specifications. And remember, you get what you pay for. Self-fitting dentures, which are sometimes offered for "discount" prices, may not fit as well, or be as well prepared, and therefore can lead to serious health problems. A dental professional and lab will make sure your denture features premium long-wearing, low-staining teeth and high impact acrylic denture base. So see your dental professional and ask for these premium quality denture materials. If you need assistance in locating a dental professional in your area, contact your local dental society or dental referral service.
