Intraoral scanners can be used to take a digital impression inside the mouth. These scans are safe and performed without radiation in the span of a few minutes. Just like traditional impressions, these can be used to facilitate dental restorations, fabrications of night guards, and aid in surgical planning. The benefits of intraoral scanning include:
- Increased accuracy as compared to traditional restorations
- Less mess – no need for messy alginate impressions
- Decreased gagging – no impression material that results in a gag reflex for many patients
- Ability to mesh data with our 3D CBCT allowing for patient-specific surgical planning
Our office uses a 3Shape Trios® scanner, which is a leading brand of intraoral scanner to provide accurate and safe results for our patients. Please contact us with questions!
