Algodones is a small town located on the Mexican-US borders of California and Arizona.
Its close proximity to the US, moderate climate and inexpensive shopping and restaurants have made this a popular destination for US and Canadian citizens for many years. Pharmaceuticals, medical and dental clinics are also considerably cheaper here, and a new industry is fast establishing itself in medical and dental care.

Located just seven miles south of Yuma, on Interstate 8, the quaint Mexican town is convenient for day-trippers who drive or walk across the border. International airports at Yuma, and slightly further afield in Phoenix, Palm Springs and San Diego make it easily accessible for both tourists and those seeking dental treatment. Expert dental care and facilities are offered here, from specialists in full mouth rehabilitation and dental implants to general dentists offering fillings and dentures.

Why Should You Choose Molar City for Your Dentures?

Algodones is a lively, colorful Mexican border town. Frequent fiestas throughout the year make it an interesting and enjoyable place to spend time shopping, dining out or just taking in the atmosphere.

By far, the overwhelming advantage of having dentures in Algodones is the cost. All dental treatment is considerably cheaper than in the US and Canada. Low-cost flights and accommodation to suit all budgets are readily available, particularly in Yuma, and the convenient placement on the border is also a major bonus.

The small size of the city belies the fact that it has a lot of well-qualified and experienced dentists, mostly situated near to the border. Its treatment facilities are on par with clinics in the US and, in fact, many dentists in here have done their training in establishments throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. If you are considering having dentures you will receive expert treatment, in a convenient location for a cost-effective price in Algodones at reliable clinics such as:

• Sani Dental Group

• Supreme Dental Clinic

• Castle Dental

How Long Will it Take to Have My Dentures Made?

The time taken to have dentures fitted will depend on whether you are having extractions.

Having dentures fitted after extractions: Following extraction of your teeth, temporary or "healing dentures" are the type of denture that can be placed. They are lighter than permanent dentures to allow for healing of the gums. The extractions and dentures can be done in a stay of 2-3 days. The temporary dentures can be worn long-term; some patients wear them for several years, but you will want to return to have the better quality permanent dentures crafted, which can only be made when the gums are fully healed after several months. Also, please note that as your gums recede in the months following extractions, the dentures will need to be relined or adjusted so as to fit snugly. This can be done by any denture lab.

Dentures with Porcelain Teeth vs. Dentures with Acrylic Teeth: The porcelain dentures are much longer-lasting than acrylic and have the best quality aesthetics and natural appearance. However, they are much heavier than acrylic dentures and can wear down the gums and bone faster than acrylics. The acrylic dentures are less expensive, lighter, and have acrylic teeth that are less cosmetically appealing. However, since they are much lighter, they can be more comfortable for some patients and do not wear down the gum and bone line as quickly as the heavier porcelain dentures.

Time Required: 3-5 days are usually needed, although with modern CAD/CAM technology your treatment can be finished in as little as two days. You will want to allow more time to enable the lab technicians to create a better quality denture and, once crafted, perform any adjustments to perfectly suit your smile 

How Much Can I Save Here vs the United States and Canada?

The cost of dentures in the US and Canada may vary a great deal, dependent upon how many teeth are on the denture and what material is used. They can range from $400 for a single tooth up to $8,000 for a set of full dentures. These prices do not include the costs of any surgery or tooth extractions, and this will incur additional charges.

A full set of dentures in Algodones will be in the range of $250-$450.

Algodones is conveniently placed to provide expert dental care at a reasonable price, especially if you require multiple visits for the fitting of dentures.
