3M™ True Definition Scanner
At Generations Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we do everything we can to make your visit as comfortable and efficient as possible. That is why we are pleased to employ state-of-the-art dental technology, including the 3M™ True Definition Scanner. The True Definition Scanner is a digital intraoral scanner used by Dr. David Goldschein and our team to help them better examine your mouth prior to a procedure. It creates a 3D model of your teeth we use to help plan treatments–all without the discomfort and traditional impressions.
Digital impressions are a modern, efficient, and comfortable way to take precise impressions of your mouth. If you have ever had to have a traditional impression or mold taken when you have visited the dentist in the past, you know that they can be unpleasant and uncomfortable. We are pleased to utilize digital impressions to eliminate the need for messy, goopy impressions. While this technology can make the experience more comfortable for any patient, it is especially good for patients who gag easily. The digital impression system is less invasive than traditional impressions and molds, and it provides our team with extremely accurate impressions.
Some of the other benefits of digital impression technology include:
- Digital impressions can be used for creating dental restorations, such as crowns, as well as orthodontic aligners like Invisalign®
- No messy “goop”
- The scanner can be quickly taken out of your mouth if you ever feel uncomfortable, and we can easily start and stop the scanning process as needed
- Digital impressions require much less time than traditional impressions, helping to make your appointment more efficient
- If you would like to learn more about digital impressions and the other advanced technology we use at our office, please call us today.
