Denture for Whole Mouth

A denture (also called as removable dental prosthesis) is a removable replacement for missing teeth. A complete denture for whole mouth replaces all natural and missing teeth in the mouth.

A complete denture does not have any natural teeth to hold it in mouth. Therefore, it should be placed on minimum 2 implants in each jaw. The implants hold the denture in its place in mouth so that the denture does not move. A complete denture without implants causes wounds and bruises in mouth while talking, eating and chewing because it does not stay in one position in mouth without the implants.

The average cost of a complete denture of 28 teeth for whole mouth with 2 implants on both jaws (total 4 implants) is $ 9750 in USA and $ 1320 outside of USA at our clinic.
