Digital Impressions, also referred to as three-dimensional intraoral imaging, are the most recent technique for creating a mouth facsimile. Our dentist can generate a virtual representation of the complex and soft tissues of the mouth using a wand-like instrument linked to a computer and sophisticated software. These reproductions are more precise than moulds and may be utilized for a wide range of applications. Our dentist may immediately transmit a digital image of the mouth to a laboratory where implants, arches, veneers, and spacers can be manufactured fast and correctly after scanning the mouth. Therefore, consider coming in to see us; call us today to get started.
What Are the Advantages of Digital Impressions?
Digital impressions are less sticky and more pleasurable than conventional matrix material, which is goopy. Patients with a strong gag reflex or hypersensitive teeth might have a more pleasant experience when a dentist makes a digital impression. Another advantage of digital impressions is the scan's precision. Because the dentist can instantly see the finished scan on display, they may correct any errors in the picture, whereas the patient is still on the couch.

What does a digital dental impression comprise?
There are two forms of digital dental impressions: image-based, which captures a sequence of digital pictures, and video-based, which captures a digital video. Laser scanning uses intensive beams of light to grasp the teeth and gums in precise detail without any uncomfortable material in the patient's mouth; digital flatbed scanners, which need a particular sunscreen on the teeth to capture accurate detail, are two options for the process. Both alternatives are risk-free and entirely accurate to perform the scan; an intraoral wand is generally placed in the patient's mouth. When the scan is finished, the digital imprint is generally sent to a dental CAD/CAM system to be created.
