Dentures come in different sizes, materials and fits, but all address similar needs. The purpose of dentures is to replace any missing or damaged teeth.1 Whether you need them to cover part of your mouth or require a complete set, dentures can help prevent severe pain and other oral issues from developing.2
However, quality dentures maybe expensive.3 Having dental insurance that covers dentures can help bring these costs down.
Not all dental insurance plans offer this kind of coverage, but you may be able to receive help for oral care with Aflac Dental Insurance. We also offer supplemental dental insurance that works with your primary dental plan to help cover certain treatments and procedures.
Denture costs without insurance are impacted by how many teeth are damaged, the materials used, and the need for preliminary treatments before getting dentures.4
Partial dentures can cost anywhere from $500 to $1,500 without insurance.5 On the other hand, full dentures can cost up to $3,500. The cost of dentures with dental insurance can be much more manageable. Let’s see how each factor can influence the cost of dentures:

If you decide you need a plan that covers the cost of dentures, one of the first questions you may ask your agent is, "how much do dentures cost with insurance?"
