Intraoral Scanning

Close up dentist's hands scans the patient's teeth with a 3d scanner. Healthcare concept.

Intraoral Optical Scanning is used in dentistry to create a digital impression of the tooth’s anatomy and implant’s tridimensional position.

The largest benefit to digital impressions offers patients the convenience of not having to endure traditional impressions. Traditional methods can leave unpleasant tasting materials, are bulky, cumbersome trays, and can cause possible gagging.

Digital imprints can be created to provide an accurate color analysis for determining the shade and custom characterizations of cosmetic restorations.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?
Intraoral scanners use light to capture optical impressions of your teeth and surrounding gums. As the scan progresses you can watch your own teeth turn into a 3D model on the screen!
Are there extra costs involved?
The scanner itself is a new cutting edge technology that we offer to our patients free of charge. If impressions are being taken for a dental lab to fabricate something for your treatment, there may be costs associated with the lab case.
How long does it take?
Depending on the reason you are having the scan it can take anywhere from 15-45 minutes to accomplish an exact replication of your teeth, but once done there’s no goop to clean up like traditional impressions!
