Dentures are removable sets of false teeth that many elderly people use to replace missing teeth. Dentures are one of the least expensive options for tooth replacement, yet their cost is not negligible. In the US, dentures usually cost around $1,700, and in the UK around £1,300. If a patient's dental insurance plan does not cover dentures, he or she can purchase them for much less in Latin America or Eastern Europe.
Dentists in Mexico, Guatemala, and Argentina offer some of the lowest prices for dentures. The waiting time between getting fitted and receiving the dentures is very short, only a week at the most. The total price is around $500 to $700, or £300 to £500. Dentures in Latin America are made from the same high-quality acrylic resin that dentures in the US and UK are made of, and Latin American dentists are skilled at fitting them correctly. Patients are well-treated and dentists take great pride in making sure that patients are satisfied with their prosthetic teeth.
In Europe, patients can find affordable dental care in Poland and Slovakia, where dentures only cost around $300 or £200. One might wonder if such inexpensive dentures are made of inferior materials or if they don't fit. But in fact, they are made of the same durable resin and just as comfortable as dentures made in the US or UK.
