Digital Dental Impressions
Capturing a mold of a patient’s mouth is required when it comes to creating a customized restoration. Whether it is a crown, veneer, or a set of dentures, precise and accurate impressions are essential for a comfortable and reliable fit. Although messy dental putty is still used by many professionals, we opt for a more patient-friendly alternative – digital dental impressions. Using this handheld device, we can easily scan a person’s teeth and gums to create a three-dimensional model that is used by lab technicians to build a fully functional, natural-looking restoration.
CT/Cone Beam Scanner
Complex dental treatments like dental implant placement, root canal therapy, and other similar procedures often require more enhanced imaging than those provided by X-rays. This is why we turn to the CT/Cone Beam Scanner. Showcasing a person’s teeth, bones, tissues, nerve pathways, blood vessels, and other nearby structures, we can formulate treatment plans more readily and thoroughly thanks to the high-resolution, 3D model that is produced with the help of hundreds of images captured by the 360-degree rotating arm.
The inner workings of a person’s mouth are no longer a mystery to a patient thanks to intraoral cameras. Instead of listening to the dentist explain what it is they see, an individual can now see in real-time what is developing inside their mouth. From small crevices of decay to more severe cases of gum disease, this camera-tipped, handheld device scans the mouth and projects the images onto a chairside monitor for easy viewing and more in-depth patient education.
