When Dr. Patel examines a patient for a new denture, he leaves no stone unturned. He looks at the health of the remaining teeth (if any), the gums, the underlying jawbone, and takes a Panorex X-ray. This helps him provide a denture that not only fits securely and looks great, but is also extremely comfortable and fully customized for each unique patient.
During a consultation, the main thing Dr. Patel does is listen. Rather than just telling someone what they need and how it’s going to work, he truly values his patients input. He wants to know what YOUR particular goals are when it comes to your dentures and what problems you want them to solve. He’ll ask you about your previous experiences with tooth replacement and what you liked and disliked about them, and then he’ll use all this information to provide the ideal prosthetic.
To design a truly world-class denture, Dr. Patel needs to examine each patients' mouth beyond what he can see with the naked eye, mostly so he can determine the health of the underlying bone that will be supporting a patients denture. To do this, he uses digital X-rays, which are much sharper, faster, and safer compared to traditional film. They take seconds to develop crystal clear images, which saves you time, plus they emit 90% LESS radiation than regular X-rays.
