Extensive tooth loss can negatively affect your confidence and make almost every aspect of your daily life more difficult.
Dentures can replace your teeth, maintain the function and health of your smile, and improve your quality of life.
Drs. Jose Valenzuela in Los Algodones, Mexico, makes high-quality dentures affordable. Let's talk about how we can repair your smile...
Your Denture Options
At the Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center
Full dentures, also known as complete dentures, replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw. Traditional dentures consist of an acrylic base that rests on the gums and supports 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 crafted to look like your gums, and small metal clasps that attach to adjacent natural teeth. We can design the framework to make your partial denture removable or fixed.
Dental implants are small titanium posts placed within your jawbone to replace lost tooth roots and support full or partial dentures. Implants make dentures highly stable, never allowing them to slip out of place while you eat and speak. Meanwhile, the implants provide important stimulation to the jaw that prevents the atrophy that otherwise follows tooth loss. 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 on the upper or lower arch with just four strategically placed dental implants. In many cases, 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.
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 implant 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.

"Excellent service! Was very satisfied with my appointment, and the care given!"

Implant-Supported Replacement Teeth
Provide Life-Changing Benefits
Dental implants are surgically placed into the jaw to replace lost tooth roots. They provide the ultimate support to dentures and any other type of dental restoration used to replace lost teeth. They are also the only solution that can provide the stimulation needed to stop the jawbone atrophy that happens after teeth are lost. While the denture itself will eventually need to be replaced, the implants can last a lifetime with proper care.
Dr. Jose Valenzuela and Dr. Juan Eduardo Arellano have completed additional training to provide their patients with this superior option. Contact Our Los Algodones, Mexico, practice to learn more about dental implants and request your implant-supported denture consultation.

You have many options when it comes to denture treatment, and for a good reason. What works best for one patient might not work at all for another. In order to help you make the best choice, our dentists will carefully review your options and the factors you need to consider, including your health, budget, timeline, and goals for treatment.
We will take the time to thoroughly assess your oral health to determine if your gums or any remaining teeth need dental work before denture placement. After all, dentures require the foundation of a healthy smile, and we want your dentures to provide many years of benefits.

Another Stunning Before and After
Are in Good Oral Health
You must be in good oral and free of tooth decay or gum disease before denture treatment. This is to ensure a healthy foundation. If you need preparatory treatment, we have comprehensive treatment options to help.
Have Sufficient Jawbone Material
It is very important that you have sufficient jawbone material for both traditional and implant-supported dentures. If you have existing bone atrophy, you and your dentist can explore All-on-4 treatment or bone grafting to help you restore your smile.
Traditional Denture Treatment
Your dentist will examine your mouth to determine if dentures are right for you. If you need preparatory treatment, this must be done before your denture treatment can continue.
Using digital scanning technology, your dentist will take impressions of your mouth. This allows our lab to craft your custom dentures.
Once your dentures are ready, you will have an appointment for a fitting. Your dentist will make adjustments as needed to ensure optimal fit, function, and comfort.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dentures
Do dentures hurt?
No. While there is an adjustment period, your dentures should not hurt. Your dentist will make adjustments to ensure there are no irritations. If you have implants placed, there is a healing period, but your dentist will provide all the needed instructions to help you remain comfortable while you heal.
How much do dentures cost?
This will depend on a number of factors, including your denture type, if you have implants placed, and if you need preparatory treatment. During your consultation, your dentist will develop a custom treatment plan so we can give you an accurate quote.
How long will my dentures last?
Dentures last 15 years on average, depending on the material. However, with proper care and maintenance, your dentures can last longer.
How long is the healing period of implant-supported dentures?
This will vary from patient to patient. Typically, healing after implant placement takes about three to six months. During this healing period, the dental implants fuse to the jawbone in a process called osseointegration.
How long do dental implants last if I get implant-supported dentures?
The implant dentures will last about 15 years, just like traditional dentures. However, the implants themselves are made of durable titanium and are designed to last a lifetime.
Does your practice perform denture repairs?
Yes. We offer denture repairs right here at our Los Algodones office to get you smiling again quickly.
