Who Are Denturists?
Denturists are denture specialists that specialize in the manufacture of partial and complete denture prosthetics. Denturists have a professional designation of Registered Denturist. The scope of practice for a denturist covers relining, rebasing, repairing, full and partial dentures, dentures over implants and partial over implants. You do not need a referral from another health professional to consult with a denturist. All denturists are governed by the College of Denturists of British Columbia. The government has produced an ACT, "Health Professionals Act- Bylaws and Policies", which ALL denturists must abide by. A fee guide is developed by the Denturists Association of BC with minimum rates that ALL denturists should charge.
Why Are Dentures So Expensive?
Dentures are not expensive when compared to dentists’ prices for the same services. Compare new dentures to other expenditures you incur annually, monthly, or even weekly such as car insurance, food costs, cosmetics, pet expenses, property tax, disability, fire, theft and home insurance's, entertainment expenses, etc. As for a wide range in the cost of a denture, it is simple: cost equals quality. A quality, well-fitting, and natural looking denture takes more time to make, and the materials cost more. A good set of dentures aids your nourishment and, therefore, gives you a higher quality of life. Life is too good to go without a smile.
