Dental Schools – Another option is to schedule your denture procedure at a dental school.
Many offer quality dental services at a fraction of the cost.
You have to agree to let students do the work, but they are qualified to provide dental care and they work under the supervision of a dentist.
Can you get free dental work at dental schools?
Most of these teaching facilities have clinics that allow dental students to gain experience treating patients while providing care at a reduced cost. Experienced, licensed dentists closely supervise the students. Post-graduate and faculty clinics are also available at most schools.
How much does it cost to get all your teeth pulled and get dentures?
Tooth extraction typically costs $75-$450 per tooth for a simple extraction and $150-$650 or more per tooth for a surgical extraction. Depending on the number of teeth to be pulled, the total cost of getting dentures can be $1,500-$20,000 or more for a full set (uppers and lowers).
Does dental insurance cover dentures?
Sadly, Medicaid doesn’t cover dentures. Dentures start at $2,500 for an upper OR a lower plate, so insurance won’t get you far. Dental saving plans are often the most effective way to save on dentures, as there are no waiting periods or annual spending limits.
Do dental schools take patients?
Fortunately, Arizona is also blessed with a number of good dental schools and clinics, where students provide quality dental care at affordable prices. While open to all, wait times for appointments can be long, and many of the clinics require screenings before accepting new patients.
