At Buffalo Creek Dental, we are committed to staying at the forefront of dental technology and providing our patients with the most advanced and effective treatment options available. One of the ways we do this is by using dental scanners instead of traditional impressions for many of our procedures.
Dental scanners are advanced imaging devices that use 3D technology to create highly detailed and accurate digital models of a patient’s mouth. These scanners are a significant improvement over traditional impression materials, which can be messy, uncomfortable, and often require multiple attempts to get a good impression.
There are several key advantages to using dental scanners instead of traditional impressions. First and foremost, dental scanners are much more accurate than traditional impressions. Because they use advanced 3D technology, dental scanners are able to capture every detail of a patient’s mouth, including subtle contours and variations in tooth size and shape. This level of accuracy is critical for procedures such as crowns, bridges, and other restorations that require precise fitting.
Another advantage of dental scanners is that they are much more comfortable for patients. Traditional impression materials can be cold, gooey, and difficult to get used to, which can make the process of getting an impression uncomfortable and even unpleasant for some patients. With dental scanners, there is no need for messy impression materials – all the patient has to do is sit comfortably in the dental chair while the scanner captures the necessary images.
In addition to being more accurate and comfortable, dental scanners are also faster and more efficient than traditional impressions. Because they are able to capture images so quickly and accurately, dental scanners can greatly reduce the amount of time it takes to create a digital model of a patient’s mouth. This can be especially beneficial for patients who need to have multiple impressions taken or who need to have their impressions redone because of errors or inaccuracies.
At Buffalo Creek Dental, we use the latest in dental scanning technology to provide our patients with the most advanced and comfortable care possible. Our team is highly trained in the use of dental scanners, and we are able to create highly accurate digital models of our patients’ mouths quickly and efficiently.
If you are in need of a crown, bridge, or other restoration, we strongly recommend that you consider having your impressions taken using a dental scanner. The benefits of this technology are numerous, and we are confident that you will be pleased with the results.
