We understand that taking impressions of your teeth may feel uncomfortable. Thanks to innovations in dentistry, this procedure no longer has to be an unpleasant experience for you.
At Central Dental Family Dentistry, we strive to make patient care more comfortable. Our dental office offers two advanced 3D intraoral scanning technologies, the Itero Digital Laser Scanner and TRIOS HD Digital Scanner.
Trios digital scanners reduce the need for the uncomfortable, goopy impressions typically required for restorations. What’s more, with the trios digital scanner, you’ll no longer have to wear impression materials, a process which can last for over 5 minutes.
See more accurate images of your teeth, faster
The unique handpieces fit easily into the mouth and scans with over 100,000 points of reference. This, in turn, gives extremely accurate 3 dimensional digital images of the teeth, allowing us to create better fitting restorations. Risks of errors are reduced, cutting down the turnaround time in creating oral appliances.
Reduce chair time
Digital scanners reduce appointment times up to 22% and eliminate the need for return appointments due to inaccurate impressions. The procedure is completed faster, with better quality results. This , in turn, helps anxious patients, as chair time is reduced. The overall dental experience is improved not only for patients, but for your dentist and the rest of the dental team as well.
Understand your oral health better
Digital scanners allow us to provide real-time visualizations for our patients. We can help you, our patient, understand better how we will restore your damaged tooth or teeth. We can even show you what your teeth will look like after the restoration. Discussing oral health becomes more engaging with the use of visuals.
Make dental procedures more environmentally-friendly
Finally, since we no longer have to produce impression materials such as trays as often, we also get to reduce waste. In case data is no longer need, we will only have to delete the digital images. We also get to save, as patient information can be saved electronically and can be accessed faster when needed.
With the help of digital scanners and 3D image technology, dentistry is simplified, and you get to enjoy more comfortable dental visits.
