Getting the best dentures is important. After all, they should last you for many years, so you want to choose the right ones.
Your lifestyle plays an important part in your decision, along with your budget of course.
For many people the only thing that matters is being able to eat and speak properly. For others the visual image is the most important thing, as new dentures transform the way you look.
However, one more thing to take into account is whether you take part in any activities which might affect the type of dentures you choose.
The importance of picking the right dentures when you take part in physical activities, or extreme sports, can’t be overlooked.
This fact became very apparent during a grandmother’s first attempt at skydiving.
The fun loving grandmother from Virginia, who was in her 70’s, lost her false teeth during the descent. The force of the wind sucked them from her mouth and hit her tandem jumper in the head, before being gone forever.
Although the lady thoroughly enjoyed her skydiving experience tremendously, it also resulted in her paying just under $1,000 for new dentures.
What Are The Best Dentures For Extreme Sports Enthusiasts?
There are several options which should help you avoid losing your false teeth.
The use of strong denture fixative can keep teeth firmly in place, although there are no guarantees.
Having loose dentures relined can also help them to fit better.
Perhaps the best way to guarantee your dentures stay in place is to opt for something more permanent.
A fixed dental bridge would ensure that your false teeth would stay firmly in place during physical activities.
Another option would be to have denture implants (implant supported dentures) fitted. Not suitable for everyone, this procedure doesn’t come cheap but does give a more permanent result than removable false teeth.
Whatever you choose, make sure you get the right teeth for your lifestyle. Choosing the wrong ones could be an expensive mistake.
