Does anyone know if Affordable Dentures does good work? I have read both good and bad reviews on the web.

I am about to get a full top denture and probably a partial bottom denture. I have been looking at Affordable Dentures, because they have a lab in the office so they can make you a temp while your mouth is healing from the extractions and their prices are good. What I want to know is how do I pick out a denture place? On average what do dentures cost? Is there anything that I should watch out for? I live near the Seattle/ Tacoma areas of WAshington if anyone can recommend a dentist to put in my dentures. I have not smiled in years, and having dentures will give me the oppertunity to smile again w/o covering my mouth like I do now.

  • i'm familiar with Affordable dentures and would not recommend you go there. Same day Dentures are usualy cheaply made. I see a Prosthodontist who has a lab in office. Find one in your area. It took a month for him to make my dentures because he wanted them to be just right for me. I have uppers and lowers and these are the best ones I've ever had. So It's worth the wait to get them right instead of having to endure unecessary pain.

  • I know about Affordable dentures, we have one here in my nearest city. A friend of mine had his done there, and he was not satisified. Basically the rule of thumb on dentures is what you pay is what u get! Plus when u get denturesyou need to get a reline done down the road at some point, basically it is usually at the 4-6 month period after you get your dentures. Because after the extractions of you teeth before your dentures,your gums, jaw, and gumline is changing basically everyother day! At affortable dentures they don't do this fixing of dentures consistinly after you get your dentures, so basicallyyourdentures create sore spots, and are going to very lose. Unless you find a dentist and pay alot extra (which in term would have been cheaper just to have this dentist do the whole thing in the beginng), and have everything done right, and pay one flat price. I have had my teeth pulled, and had to have upper dentures, I had this done on July 20, 2011. I have had to go in there all the time, at least twice a week, to have them adjusted, because of sore spots, and inapropriatly fitting. When I first found this dentist, I went through their finance company and go a quote for everything, I mean everything that is going to cost me!I got a flat fee, Just so there are no surprises. So even sometimes I have to go in 3 times a week, but I am not paying any extra, because of this one time quote and flat fee. The dentist did the extractions is his office that day, and I got my dentures the same day. Which is good to good to get ur dentures the same day, because of the problem of getting dry socket. The dentures that are in place, prevent this very painful problem. (I know I actually did end up getting this for my bottom teeth) Plus everyone say my dentures are beautiful and one of the best they have ever seen. I am happy, so I would defiently recommed going to a dentist that can give you good quality dentures, rather than affordable dentures. I mean think about this.it is your smile forever, a smile that is a first thing people look at.Like when you get a job, or maybe meet the one, if you are not married. But a smile lasts a lifetime, shouldn't your dentures!

  • Affordable Dentures in Homested Florida quoted me a price of $4500 for extractions and a full upper and full lower... No follow up included.
    I had my work done by a local DMD here in Key Largo, $5036. all inclusive, follow-ups, adjustments, everything...
    The dentistat Afffordable was very unpleseant, making snide remarks as to what my dental problems were... I would NOT recommend them to anyone. There are Dentists out there who do a great Job, and treat you like you mean something to thier business, not just a pile of money.

  • I had all teeth extracted June, 2011 and paid $6000 for a complete set of dentures.Went back 2 and 3 times weekly for "adjustments" including a soft reline. These dentures look terrific but nothing they did helped me to keep them in. I finally got disgusted and went to a dentist who advestised reasonably priced dentures made in their own lab on site. I went in at 9:00 AM and got the impressions made. By 11:oo AM they had wax mockups made which they checked for fit and used to make the final dentures whcih were placed in my mouth at 4:00 PM on the same day. The cost was about 1/10th of what I paid for the originals. They look great and fit great. So anyone says you have to spend a lot of money and wait weeks or more for dentures is simply wrong. Incidentally, these dentures are guranteed for a year and any necessary adjustments are included. I know this is not "Affordable Dentures" but I think it demonstrates that dentures on't have to break the bank.

  • i did the exact same thing 6 weeks ago.... dont go there..... they really suck.... my stiches came out in 2 days resulting in dry socket that they would do nothing about..... you have to pay in full up front and so since they have already been paid they dont want to do anything else. adjustments have to be readjusted almost everyday because they never get it right or they say.... i know.... but it has to be that way.... like,,,,, i know you have horse teeth but it has to be that way.... whatever.... they suck .... dont go there

  • My mom went to one of those places and it is awlful They don't give you the permanent dentures until 14 mos later. She has to kee going back
    to get "adjustments." And they have been paid for in full. I am looking to see who the franchise owner is and complaining because it is ridiculous.

  • Ok, I went to Affordable Dentures here in Shreveport, La. I cannot complain about their attitude, it has been great. I am having trouble with my dentures, they have been relined about 5 times in the last 5 weeks. These are the temporary ones, have to wait awhile for the good ones. I'll let ya'll know how they do.
