Doctors Luis Cadena and Valerie Cadena-Vargas are skilled in providing dentures options for your specific case. Cadena Dentistry offers dentures in Del Rio, Brackettville, Eagle Pass, and all surrounding communities.

Partial Dentures

When decay or trauma leads to the loss of several teeth, a patient may need most, but not all, of an arch must be replaced. A partial denture can be fabricated to restore this portion of the smile. Partials use metal clasps that wrap around the existing teeth for support.

This restoration is custom designed for a patient’s unique needs. It is also great for patients who cannot undergo the surgical care necessary for an implant-supported bridge. However, the clasps of a partial may wear your teeth down prematurely, depending upon your specific case. It is important to discuss this option with our dentists in Del Rio to make sure that partial dentures are the best treatment for you.

Full Dentures

Whereas a partial replaces a portion of an arch of teeth, a full denture replaces a full set of teeth. If all teeth in one or both arches are already gone or cannot be saved due to extreme decay, full dentures are the answer. These prosthetics rely on the natural structures within the smile for support and are another non-surgical alternative to implants. However, oral structures will change over time, so continual maintenance will be part of your life with dentures.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that both provide a platform to support your new teeth and prevent the jaw bone from shrinking, a natural side effect of missing teeth. In addition to crowns and bridges, implants can anchor full dentures and more comprehensively reconstruct an entire smile.

Implant-supported dentures can be more effective than traditional dentures for many patients. The stability provided by implants are second only to natural teeth, so little—if any—change to your diet is necessary for this treatment. Because implants slow down jaw bone resorption, implant-supported dentures improve the health of your smile in general. While not everyone is an immediate candidate for dental implants, those who are often have a more positive experience overall with their dentures.
