When you visit Dr. Crapo & Associates for a dental exam, your dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth and check for problems such as tooth decay, periodontal disease (e.g. gingivitis,) infections, cysts, bone loss, oral cancer, and cavities.
As well as visually examining your teeth and gums, your dentist might use x-rays to screen your bones and the roots of your teeth for outwardly invisible issues. Exams are also the perfect occasion to make sure that any restorations such as bridges, dental implants, or veneers are in good condition.
Proper dentures after 43 years
Changes to your mouth will change the way your denture fits, especially when a denture has been worn for many years, but you don’t have to live with loose-fitting dentures. Gary had been living with an ill-fitted denture since he was 18. By the time he turned 61, enough was enough. His wife put him in contact with our dental office, and we recommended that he consider using mini implants to stabilize his dentures. Gary finished his treatment on the day his testimonial was taken.
“The whole procedure was totally painless. There was no pain! I just had the work completed and it feels wonderful. I can’t describe the feeling of… what it feels like to speak without worrying about my denture slipping down. Everyone of the staff members are just very outgoing. They basically really care about you. They care about your comfort… The quality of my life has definitely improved!”
