CAN WE DEDUCT THE COST OF DENTURES?

Yes, dentures are a qualified medical expense. 

If you itemize your deductions for a taxable year, you may be able to deduct expenses you paid that year for medical and dental care for yourself, your spouse, and your dependents. You may deduct only the amount of your total medical expenses that exceed 10% of your adjusted gross income or 7.5% if you or your spouse is 65 or older.
