Digital impressions are a new way to use technology that is on the cutting-edge. This is a way for dentists to create a digital, virtual replica of your mouth, including the soft tissues as well as the hard tissues. It captures the impression of your mouth by using devices such as lasers instead of you needing to have a physical impression made. This virtual impression is highly accurate and detailed. It’s also less messy than taking a physical impression.
The digital impressions that are made can be sent right to the computer where they can be used to make restorations without the physical models necessary. For patients, it means less time has to be spent in the dental chair.
Patients often find it more comfortable as well as easier to get this type of impression made than the traditional kind. We are so serious about patient comfort that we find this new technology to be a great way to serve our patients.
