When it comes time to get a dental procedure done, it is important that your dental professional gets the best look into your mouth in order to prepare your mouth for what’s to come. In the past, this impression was created with trays and gooey material. For many patients, this would trigger a gag reflex or other variations of discomfort, making the whole experience very undesirable. Thankfully, dental technology has advanced in this area and 3D impressions have changed the impression-making game.
These days, dental impressions can be done with an intraoral scanner. The scanner shoots a light at the area and a 3D digital impression is created in less than a minute. Not only is this a more time-efficient way to get a look at a patient’s mouth, but if the scan isn’t taken to the satisfaction of the dental professional, or the impression isn’t as clear as it could be, it can be easily retaken at that time. No more additional appointments! This not only saves time, but also money – no more impression trays and materials to keep on hand.
Taking time to visit the dentist is something everyone needs to do, but not always the most favorite task to do. With today’s technology, these appointments are becoming faster, safer and a comfortable experience for the patient. Here at Extraordinary Smiles, we have taken advantage of many of these soothing and relaxing methods to ensure our patients have the best experience possible. Soon enough, these experiences are going to be so enjoyable, you’ll begin to look forward to making those dental appointments.
