The average cost of a partial denture in a rich country like USA is USD $ 90 per tooth. But, in inexpensive locations outside of USA at our clinic, it costs USD $ 10 per tooth for the same quality of denture, and the dental treatment done by an equally well experienced doctor.
A complete denture for whole mouth has 28 teeth. Therefore, the cost of a complete denture is 28 times the cost of a partial denture of a single tooth.
The average cost of a denture is $ 90 per tooth in USA and $ 10 per tooth outside of USA at our clinic. The total cost of a denture is calculated by multiplying the cost of one tooth with the total number of teeth in the denture.
Total cost of a denture in France = $ 90 X total number of teeth
Total cost of a denture outside of France = $ 10 X total number of teeth
Example, for a denture of 10 teeth, the cost will be:
Cost in USA
$ 90 X 10
Cost Outside of USA
$ 10 X 10
The average cost of a partial denture in USA is $ 90 per tooth. And the cost of a complete denture of 28 teeth for whole mouth is $ 2520.
Total cost of a denture = $ 90 X total number of teeth
$ 90 X 1
$ 90 X 28
Dentures are very expensive in USA, but you can save a lot of money by traveling to an affordable location outside of USA for 4-5 days for the dental treatment.
For example, at our clinic, the cost of a complete denture for whole mouth is $ 280 which is 9 times lower than the average cost of $ 2520 in USA. So, you can save a lot of money, and at the same time enjoy a free holiday trip.

There are 2 types of dentures:
A partial denture replaces one or many missing teeth but needs natural teeth to stay in a firm position in mouth. The natural teeth hold the partial denture in its position.
A complete denture replaces all natural and missing teeth in mouth. It does not have any natural teeth to hold it in mouth. Therefore, it should be placed on minimum 2 implants in each jaw. A complete denture without implants causes wounds and bruises in mouth while talking, eating, chewing because it does not stay in one position in mouth without implants.
An implant surgery is done in two parts. In first part, implants are placed and in second part, tooth crown is placed over the implant.
First Visit: The first visit is of 4-5 days. In this visit, implants are placed. It takes 45-60 minutes to insert each implant. After the surgery, you can resume your daily work after 2-3 days. The crown is not yet placed in this surgery because the bone needs time to heal completely.
Healing / Waiting Time: The healing / waiting time is of 2 months. During this period, you will wear a removable partial denture as a temporary replacement.
Second Visit: The second visit is of 3-4 days. In this a tooth crown is placed over the implant that was placed in the first visit. No healing time is required after this.
