Are Dentures a Good Procedure If I’m a Dental Tourist?


Most dental procedures are good options if you want to travel overseas for them: not only are they a good deal cheaper, but the quality is often as good or better than what you might get at home. For people who want to make their money stretch (and who doesn’t these days?), combining your dental treatment with a holiday is a great way of saving without incurring additional costs..

Unless you require extractions, dentures are a particularly good option because there is no recovery time associated with the procedure. Even if you do have extractions, apart from some tenderness for a day or two afterwards, you should be able to enjoy your food and other activities. Thus, apart from brief visits to your dentist to have impressions of your mouth made and to have your dentures fitted, you’ll have ample time to enjoy your holiday and see the sights of Malaga and surrounding areas.

What is the Procedure for Getting Dentures in Malaga?

Getting dentures typically requires two or three appointments with your dentist.

During your first appointment, the dentist will give your mouth a thorough examination and take x-rays. Next, impressions of your mouth will be made, which are sent to the lab to make your new dentures.

After a few days, you will return to the dentist to have your dentures fitted. Minor adjustments are made by the dentist and you should leave with good-quality, well-fitting dentures that have cost you less than half the price you’d pay at home.

If you are having extractions, additional appointments may be required. After the extractions, you will be given temporary healing dentures, which are lighter than normal dentures and allow the gums to heal. You will usually need to wear these for three months before you can be measured up for your permanent dentures, although many patients wear them a lot longer.

Do I Need Dentures if I Have Missing Teeth ?

While many people get by without dentures, your need for dentures depends on how many teeth are missing and where they are located in your mouth. Chewing food properly is easier with dentures, and if you have lost a lot of teeth it is virtually impossible to eat some foods, like a rack of ribs.

Missing teeth are not attractive when you smile, so from a cosmetic perspective dentures are a much better option.

What Kind of Denture Will I Need?

  • Partial dentures are used if you have a few gaps in your dentition

  • Conventional dentures are used when you have no teeth in the upper or lower jaw

  • Immediate or ‘healing dentures’ are used just after extractions

  • Overdentures are an arch of teeth that are attached to either the roots of your own teeth, or dental implants, to provide stability.

What about the Quality of Dentures in Malaga? Will They be as Good as at Home?

At the best clinics in Malaga, your dentist will be suitably trained and just as skilled as dentists at home. They use internationally-recognized techniques and materials, and observe established health and safety protocols.

Dental tourists are fortunate because all dentists in Spain are in private practice, which means they must compete for patients. We at Dental Departures recommend you conduct research to ensure the dental clinic you choose is reliable and trustworthy. This may seem unnerving if you don’t know where to start, which is where we can help. We do thorough background checks to verify dentist qualifications and professional memberships. In addition, we publish verified patient reviews and current prices on our website. You can find lots of information to help you choose your dentist in Malaga with complete confidence.

Why Else Should I Choose Malaga for My Dentures?

Malaga is a great holiday location and extremely popular with holidaymakers from the UK and Ireland. The airport and City of Malaga are in the middle of the Costa del Sol region, making it easy to get anywhere around the vicinity.

The beaches and coastal resorts are an obvious draw: Fuengirola, Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Marbella and Estepona are especially popular, although you may find little in the way of authentic Spain.

However, you needn’t go far to experience Spanish history. The city of Malaga is a good place to start. The vast Moorish fortress–the Alcazaba–is perched on the hills above the city. Dating from the 11th century, it has been restored extensively with courtyards, fountains and lush greenery, providing a glimpse of Spanish history well worth the effort of making the trek. A winding path amid palms, bougainvillea and orange trees takes you to the nearby Roman Amphitheatre, dating back to the first century AD.


Several excellent museums dot the city, including the Museo Picasso, housed in the Buenavista Palace and containing more than 200 works by the great artist. The Museo de Malaga consists of mainly Andalucian landscape paintings, and the Museo Carmen Thyssen has an extensive collection of 19th century works by Spanish and Andalucian artists.
