Digital impressions represent cutting-edge technology that allows dentists to create a 3D computer-generated replica of the hard and soft tissues of the mouth.
There is no need for uncomfortable metal trays or messy impression material. This digital technology captures clear and highly accurate impression data in minutes.
Many patients find digital impressions much easier and more comfortable (especially those with a gag reflex).
Benefits of digital impressions:
- More comfortable, less anxious experience for patients.
- More accurate than traditional impressions, which leads to more accurately fitting restorations/prostheses.
- Faster than traditional impressions (no retakes) reducing amount of time you are in the dental chair.
- No distasteful impression material or uncomfortable metal trays
