Does your dentist still use those old-fashioned, gooey, uncomfortable impression trays that never fit and make you gag?
For many years I wanted to work on my father’s teeth, but I was unable to do so because his gag reflex was so severe that he could never handle having the impression trays in his mouth.
Our office has done away with the old, goopy style of impressions, and now we only take digital impressions.
Digital impressions are better for you, and for us:
- They can be taken in just a few minutes.
- The scanner is small and non-intrusive. You won’t gag.
- You get a perfect 1-to-1 digital models of your teeth. This helps you get a better, more exact fit on crowns, nightguards, Invisalign, etc.
- The digital model can be stored and compared against previous models, so you can see the effects of grinding and teeth shifting over time.
Dad had no problem with the small digital impression “wand”. I was able to fix 3 of his teeth with same-day crowns!
The scanner is so nice to have, as we can 3D print models and do a digital wax ups for cosmetic work.
