At West End Dental, our goal is to provide you with the best dental care possible. To achieve this goal of providing you with only the highest quality care, we use the latest dental tools and technologies in our office. Among the technology that we use here is the technology for digital impressions.
What are Digital Impressions?
Traditionally, when impressions were required, impression putty was used. Impression putty was both messy to use and could be uncomfortable for patients. Today, we take advantage of the latest dental technologies and offer digital impressions. When appropriate, impressions are taken using an optical scanner. We move the compact, handheld scanner over your teeth to capture an impression of the teeth and gums. It only takes a few minutes to capture the imaging field and the image is shown in 3D on a computer screen within seconds.
Why We Take Digital Impressions
There are several reasons why digital impressions might be taken.
