My 38 y/o son needs to have all of his upper teeth

My 38 y/o son...

My 38 y/o son needs to have all of his upper teeth extracted. The upper teeth are completely rotted. REALLY BAD! On the the lower teeth he will just need a partial plate. Given the info I've provided, can you give me a ball park figure for the cost? And pretend he doesn't need any extra work.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you noticed any swelling in the gums? When was your last visit to the dentist?

It's been at least six years . The only thing I've noticed is that his gums bleed once in a while. No swelling. (no ins)

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the dentist should know?

He is a recovering addict. the reason for the teeth rotting. He went to the hospital last week for a kidney stone and was told his BP was slightly elevated.

Hi, there! I can give you a ballpark figure for these based on the dental fees in my area (Texas), but it could vary depending on where you are located.

A complete denture usually ranges from $1200-1800.

A partial denture can be anywhere from $800 for a temporary-plastic type partial to $1800 for a cast metal framework (which is typically the best and longest-lasting).

If he has dental insurance, they should cover a portion of the cost.

Did you also need average fees for the extractions? The extraction cost is per tooth, and has a wider range based on location. On average, it is probably about $150 per tooth.

What other questions can I answer for you?

Sincerely,

Dr. Lara

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
