Patients traveling to Costa Rica for their dentures will save a substantial amount, but will also find that it is a terrific country for getting out-and-about. Activities range from the adrenaline-fuelled to the sedate, and you are sure to find something that suits your tastes and capabilities.
Getting involved with nature is one of Costa Rica’s many draws, with treetop canopy tours proving particularly popular. However, the beauty of these tours is that they are available for all-comers. If you don’t fancy hurtling through the canopies on a zip-wire, then there are ski-lift style chairs which will transport you gently through the trees at a pace slow enough to take-in the glorious surroundings.
With plenty of time on your hands to discover this captivating country while you are waiting for their lab work to be completed on your dentures, you will find plenty to entertain and enthrall you.
Despite advances in dental care missing teeth are still a common dental problem. Obviously, as we are living longer our teeth have to last longer than they ever did before, which means, eventually, we may lose a few along the way. This may be compounded by our predilection for all things sweet - which are not kind to our teeth – as well as tooth loss from trauma and accidents.
Coping with missing teeth is embarrassing and can affect your confidence immeasurably. Dentures are not cheap at home, but it is important to get dentures that are of a high-quality and fit well. Unfortunately, our budget may not necessarily extend to what we want. The common misconception is that the materials used by dentists abroad are somehow inferior, but this couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Costa Rica dentists are able to offer you good-quality dentures for considerably less than your dentist at home. While dentures inCosta Rica cost less than they do at home, this does not mean they are of inferior quality. In fact, it is far more likely that you will be able to afford dentures made of higher grade materials in Costa Rica, meaning your dentures will not only look better, but last for longer too.
If you have recently had extractions or surgery you will have to wait until your gums have healed before permanent dentures are fitted. This doesn’t mean you will have no teeth – you will be fitted with a ‘healing denture’ in the meantime. It is a temporary measure, and many people have worn them for years, but usually it is for a few months until your gums have healed satisfactorily.
Dentures are available in a choice of materials, of which your dentist will discuss the suitability to your particular circumstances.
Porcelain dentures have a more natural appearance than acrylic and are much harder-wearing and, therefore, longer-lasting. However, they are heavier than acrylic and may place more stress on your bones and gums. They are also more expensive than acrylic.
Some patients find acrylic dentures much more comfortable to wear, simply because they are lighter.
In the United States, a full acrylic denture will cost you in the region of $1,800, but in Costa Rica can be as low as $200.
Visiting Costa Rica for your dentures will enable you to get the best quality materials at a price almost 90% lower than at home – which is certainly something to smile about.
