Cosmetic reasons are often the most important reason for people getting dentures, especially if they only have one or two teeth missing. Having missing teeth, especially at a young age, can make you look much older than your years – which, frankly, no-one wants. It is also a sure-fire way to sap you of your confidence, making you embarrassed to smile, which then has a knock-on effect to people you meet.
Although cosmetic reasons may be a significant factor in wearing dentures, the benefits of being able to chew food properly without pain or discomfort will certainly be a major consideration for others, especially those who have virtually no teeth left.
Dentures are also an important for maintaining your oral health. Gaps in your teeth are not only uncomfortable and possibly painful for the exposed gum, but the surrounding teeth, bereft of support, may gradually move into the gap, and possibly cause problems with your bite.
Our dentists in Karon Beach will provide you with well-fitting, high-grade dentures at much lower prices than you’d pay at home.
Whether its full dentures or partial dentures, your Karon Beach dentist will discuss with you your needs and requirements and together you can decide on what material is the best for your particular circumstances. The same materials that your dentist would offer you at home are all available for Thailand dentists – and whether you prefer a lighter, acrylic denture; a more natural-looking porcelain denture; or a porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) denture, which is both natural-looking and strong – you will get a top-quality service at an incredibly low price.
Whatever material you decide upon, they will be of the highest quality, and made by lab technicians who have the skill and knowledge to produce long-lasting, natural-looking dentures that fit well. For denture wearers who have had the misfortune of ill-fitting dentures, wouldn’t it be nice to have them replaced with comfortable dentures that you feel at ease with, knowing they aren’t going to slip at inappropriate moments?
The prices in Kata Beach for dentures are around 20% of the price at home. Book with Dental Departures to guarantee you will always pay the lowest price possible, leaving you more to spend on your holiday.
Providing you haven’t had a recent extraction or surgery, or if you are simply replacing old dentures, a new set of dentures in Karon Beach takes less than 5 days. If you have recently had surgery or extractions you will have to wait for the gums to heal before you can be fitted with permanent dentures. This can take around 3 months, but in the meantime you will be issued with a healing denture which is light enough to allow the soft tissues underneath to heal.
The cost will depend upon the material you decide to choose, but for a full acrylic denture in Australia, the cost is around AUD $1,800, but in Karon Beach it will cost you around AUD $300.
