Signs and Symptoms You May Need Dentures?

Posted .

Do you need false teeth? If you brush your pearly whites two times per day and floss at least once a day, the answer is most likely no. If you’re older than 60 and have lost several teeth, the answer might be yes.

Identifying the need for dentures can be tricky, but there are some signs you can look for to determine whether you could have a need for dentures. First of all and most obviously, you might need dentures if you are missing chompers. If the pearly whites you do have feel extra sensitive to heat, cold and other sensations, you may have serious tooth erosion, necessitating partial or complete false teeth.

If you do need false teeth, they’ll be formed to last for a long time. To create dentures, Dr. Jamie Choi begins by taking an impression of the patient’s oral cavity, whether through use of a resin mold or digital imaging. After Dr. Jamie Choi reviews the impression or image to make sure it is ready, we will send the impressions to an oral lab for processing. Technicians at the lab use high temperatures and advanced techniques to create solid, durable false teeth that will last for a very long time. In a second visit, Dr. Jamie Choi will make modifications to the false teeth to ensure that they sit well in the patient’s mouth.
