We are proud to offer digital dental impressions to our patients to improve the comfort, accuracy & efficiency of their care. Whether we’re making cosmetic improvements or doing a Digital Smile Design, digital impressions are the latest technology for streamlining the process, making it easier for both our patients & our dental team.
With our digital scanner for dental impressions, its like a story of the past, when dental impressions were taken imprinting your teeth into a mould-making material by biting down on a tray full of rubbery flowy material. You would have to keep this goop in your mouth for several minutes as it hardened. Many patients found it very uncomfortable.
Traditional impressions are particularly uncomfortable for patients with a very sensitive gag reflex.
Digital impressions are taken using an intraoral scanner that creates a detailed 3-D image of your mouth. We take the scan by systematically moving the wand around your mouth as it emits a specialized scanning light. The images of your mouth can be viewed on a computer screen within seconds, to be viewed by both you & the dentist.
The accuracy of digital impressions is even more accurate. Because we can see the 3-D model of your mouth immediately.
Digital impressions are used in restorative dentistry to create tooth replacements, such as crowns, bridges & partial dentures. Digital impressions can also be used in dental implant procedures, both for planning implant placement & accurate placement of implants on the day of the operation. Digital impressions can also be used for planning & visualizing how to straighten teeth, especially with systems that are already include digital workflow, such as clear aligners like Invisalign®.
