Your Denture Options
Full dentures, also known as complete dentures, replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw. Traditional dentures consist of a removable acrylic base that rests on the gums and includes a full arch of prosthetic teeth. Since removable dentures rely on suction and dental adhesive for support, they do not offer the highest level of stability. However, they are usually the most affordable solution, and treatment can be completed in a relatively short time frame.
If you have one or more remaining natural teeth, you may qualify for a partial denture. A partial denture consists of artificial teeth, an acrylic base, and small metal claps that attach to adjacent natural teeth. We can design the framework to make your partial denture removable or fixed — bonding it in place for additional stability.
Dental implants are small titanium posts placed within your jawbone to secure your full or partial denture. Implants eliminate many of the common complaints associated with prosthetic teeth. They are highly stable and never slip out of place while you eat and speak. Furthermore, the implants repair the underlying tooth roots, preventing bone loss and gum recession. Our dentists have undergone additional training in implant dentistry to offer every step of treatment at our dental clinic in Los Algodones, Mexico.
All-on-4® is an advanced method designed to secure a full denture with just four strategically placed dental implants. This system is an excellent alternative for patients who have lost tissue in their jawbone (a side effect of tooth loss) but do not want to undergo a preliminary bone grafting procedure. It is also more cost-effective than the typical six to eight posts required for a traditional implant-supported denture.
Snap-on dentures, also known as overdentures, are a cross between a traditional and an implant-supported denture. The prosthetic itself is essentially a removable denture and should be rinsed after meals and soaked overnight. However, when in use, they are secured to fixed implants posts giving you additional stability. If you don't qualify for traditional dental implants or want a lower-cost treatment alternative, snap-on dentures may be right for you.

"Returning to reline the healing dentures after swelling subsides I would highly recommend. The cost difference vs.US dentistry is substantial, even factoring in multiple rounds of travel expenses to Yuma/Los Algodones. My advice to anyone with infected teeth, teeth at the end of their duty cycle, os to hve the surgery asap. Infected teeth were negatively effecting my health. So much so that my wife and I both noticed positive changes in my health during the first week after surgery." Sum Gai, 5-Star Review, 2021
