Tooth loss can have a big impact on your smile which can, in turn, be detrimental to your self-confidence. It can also cause future problems with your dentition as the surrounding teeth will gradually start to move into the vacant spaces left behind by lost teeth. This is why it is of paramount importance to replace your missing teeth at the earliest possible opportunity.
And where better to get your new dentures than Mexico? There’s plenty to keep you amused while you wait for your new dentures to be fabricated, from fascinating historical sites to stunning beaches with crystal-blue waters... so why not take the plunge and book your treatment with one of our quality-checked dentists in Mexico.

What Is Involved in the Process of Getting New Dentures?
Getting your dentures in Mexico will involve several steps, with the first being an initial examination of your jaws and gums; this will also include x-rays and have an impression taken of your mouth. The dental lab will use these impressions to manufacture your dentures, and you will return to your dentist for the fitting and any necessary adjustments that need to be made.
The timescale for each patient differs depending on their circumstances. For instance:
- If extractions are required, you will be given a ‘healing denture’ to wear during the healing process, which can take up to three months.
- Without extractions, the procedure takes as long as the manufacturing process in the dental lab, which will vary from clinic to clinic.
Types of Denture
There are four main different types of denture that your dentist can fit:
Partial dentures - These are used to conceal gaps in your dentition and are fitted over existing teeth.
Conventional (full) dentures – These are used to replace a complete arch of teeth in either the upper or lower jaw.
Immediate dentures – These are the healing dentures that are used after extractions.
Overdentures – These are devices that are attached to the stumps of broken teeth, providing support and stability to the dentures.
