Digital scanning is also known as 3-D intraoral scanning and uses the latest technology to take pictures and make impressions of the mouth. Digital scanning uses computer-aided software and a tool in the shape of a wand to create a virtual picture of the mouth. The digital software can display both the tissue and teeth and is extremely accurate. Digital scanning helps our doctors create immediate digital impressions and images so that items such as crowns, retainers, dentures, or bridges can be made quickly. Intraoral scanning can help identify teeth alignment issues and assist in correcting orthodontic problems with your teeth.
Digital scanning provides many benefits to both the patient and our doctors, and the process can be done quickly and in one appointment.
