Digital impressions for implants and crowns
from The Palm Beach Post
I have large boney projections the size of half my pinky finger on my gums. The doctor called them "tori." I need implants and crowns, but when my doctor tries to take impressions, I scream in pain when the tray holding the goop scrapes against these boney areas. How can I avoid this?
You are talking to the right guy. I have an "exostosis," or tori in my own mouth that can hold a rack of Passover china. Peanut butter loves to rest there as well. A great technology that I have been using called digital impression scanners avoids the whole goop and impression tray deal completely.
