What is an Intraoral Scanner?
Digital impressions are a modern, efficient and comfortable way to take precise impressions of your mouth. If you have ever had to have a traditional impression or mold taken in the past, you know that they can be unpleasant and uncomfortable. We are pleased to utilize digital impressions to eliminate the need for messy, goopy impressions. While this technology can make the experience more comfortable for any patient, it is especially good for patients who gag easily. The digital impression system is less invasive than traditional impressions and molds and provides our team with extremely accurate impressions.
Some of the other benefits of digital impression technology include:
- Digital impressions can be used for creating dental restorations, such as crowns, as well as orthodontic aligners
- No messy “goop”
- The scanner can be quickly taken out of your mouth if you ever feel uncomfortable, and we can easily start and stop the scanning process as needed
- Digital impressions require much less time than traditional impressions, helping to make your appointment more efficient
