Frequently Asked Questions about Dentures & Extraction Services

How do I know what new dentures will cost?

The affiliated practices providing Daily Dentures want you to know what fees will be charged before you come to the practice. Our fees are posted on this website, but you can get fee information two additional ways:

  • Call the practice directly. To reach the Sevierville practice, call 865-272-2607.  To reach the Knoxville practice, call 865-280-1139.
  • Call 1-855-YESDAILY. They can provide fee information over the phone and will mail you an information brochure with practice fee information at no charge.

No one wants to be embarrassed because your treatment plan was far more than you could afford. We display our fees so you can have a reasonable estimate of the cost of the services you will need. (For clinical reasons, additional fees may need to be charged in some cases.)

How can your fees be so low?

  • Having an on-site denture lab eliminates the added mark up that is charged by outside commercial dental labs. We eliminate the “middle man” and pass the savings on to patients.
  • We have cost-saving, volume-buying power for all our clinical supplies and materials.
  • Only serving denture patients allows us to standardize our treatment plans and denture fabrication. We operate very cost effectively.
  • Our practices are comfortable but not luxurious -  this helps keep our fees low!

Do you accept dental insurance?

If you have dental insurance, Daily Dentures will provide an appropriate dental statement of services. You save money by filing the claim yourself with your insurance company.

Since the Daily Dentures fees are so low, the total cost for the services you will receive is frequently less than the co-pay you are required to pay to your insurance carrier if you go to another dental practice. The practice staff can help you calculate the costs so you can make the best decision.

When should I replace my denture?

Most dentists agree a denture should be replaced every five to 10 years. Patients will find that the fit of their denture changes over the years as their mouth changes. Regular check ups are recommended.

How often should I visit the dentist now that I have dentures?

Even if you have lost all or some of your natural teeth, you should still visit your dentist once a year. The dentist will be able to evaluate the fit of your denture, offer suggestions for denture care and hygiene, and check for issues that may arise, such as oral cancer.

What if I have an emergency?

We are usually able to provide same-day treatment for patients that are in pain and need EMERGENCY EXTRACTION SERVICES. Please understand, your health conditions and any medications you may be taking will determine if extraction services can be provided.

Same-day denture service is very helpful if an EMERGENCY occurs because you unexpectedly lost or broke your denture. Since every practice has an on-site lab, emergency REPAIRS can usually be accommodated the same day.

How should I clean my dentures?

Daily care and cleaning of a new denture is very important to help maintain good dental health. For everyday cleaning, use a soft brush and a cleaning agent, such as soap and water, or products sold especially to clean dentures. Be sure to brush both the inside and outside of your denture. This will help eliminate harmful bacteria. We also suggest soaking your denture in water or a denture-cleaning agent like Polident when you take them out at night.

We strongly recommend you hold your dentures over a sink filled with water when you are cleaning them. This will help prevent breakage if you accidentally drop them. You may also want to cushion the sink and counter with a soft cloth or towel.

What if my denture is causing soreness on my gums?

It is not unusual for a new denture to create sore spots on your gums. Simply call the practice that provided the services, and they will let you know when to return to have your denture adjusted. Adjustments help eliminate sore spots, and there is no charge for the first 60 days. Following 60 days, a small fee will be charged.
