Yes, dental implant support dentures cost more than traditional dentures, but the benefits clearly outweigh the cost.  Because your denture is supported by dental implants, it does not slip or move, cause sore spots, or restrict what foods you are able to enjoy.  Your implants are designed to last a lifetime, though the denture may need to be replaced every 8-15 years depending on how well it is maintained. Every case is different, from the number of dental implants used to retain the denture and whether bone grafting is necessary to provide adequate bone levels prior to placing an implant.
