Low Cost Partials and Dentures | Costs of Dentures

This page provides price estimates for removable partial dentures made from cast metal, acrylic (plastic) and flexible plastic (Valplast®).

In all cases, the fees shown are for a single "unit, " meaning one partial (either upper or lower).

(Typically, the total number of teeth replaced by a partial, either large or small, has minimal impact on its overall price.)

Removable partial dentures.

The cost for partial dentures varies, primarily due to the type of material from which their "major connector" (the substructure / framework / base portion of the partial) is made.

A) Cast Metal -

Partial denture, cast metal framework. - Upper or lower.
$1100.00 - $1800.00

(How did we come up with this estimate?)

What is a cast partial?

Cast-metal partial dentures are so named because their underlying framework (substructure and tooth clasps) is custom fabricated (cast) using a metal alloy. Denture teeth and gum-colored plastic are then added to this framework to complete the appliance.

Cast partials are typically the standard by which other types of partial dentures are compared. Due to the advantages they offer (strength, durability, excellent fit and retention, minimal thickness), they are typically considered to be the preferred type for most applications.

B) Acrylic (hard plastic) -

Partial denture, acrylic (plastic) base. - Upper or lower.
$700.00 - $1100.00

What are acrylic partial dentures?

As their name implies, the base portion of an acrylic partial is made out of (tissue-colored) plastic. The required denture teeth and metal tooth clasps are embedded in this plastic base.

Acrylic partials are typically considered to be less desirable than cast ones (in terms of function, strength, durability and effect on the patient's natural teeth). They do, however, offer the advantage that teeth can usually be added to the appliance if the patient looses additional natural teeth.

The usual reasons for choosing an acrylic partial are its lower cost or that it will just serve some sort of short-duration transitional purpose.

C) Acrylic (flexible plastic) -

Partial denture, flexible (plastic) base (Valplast®). - Upper or lower.
$1000.00 - $1400.00

What are Valplast® partial dentures?

Flexible partial dentures (like Valplast® brand) are unique in the fact that both their base and tooth clasps are made out of a flexible tissue-colored plastic.

Need advice: Low income dad

My father seriously needs a dentist but with all of his payments already, he's definitely not making this a priority. His dentures (partial) broke in half and it hurts him to eat. At the same time, one tooth on the front/lower part of his mouth is pretty loose.
I would help him financially, if I could, but I've just been laid off and my husband and I are barely making ends meet for our family.
Any suggestions for local, east bay area (San Leandro, San Lorenzo, Hayward, Union City, Castro Valley) dentists that are reasonable and work with seniors? He doesn't have dental insurance
