Dr. Ted French, in addition to the Gendex 3D dental imaging equipment also purchased a 3M True Definition Intraoral Camera to help him scan his patients’ teeth. This digital dental impression system eliminates the need to take impressions the old-fashioned way. When the scanner makes its impression, it sends it in digital form straight to the lab. This not only saves time and money, it also increases accuracy. It will provide better-fitting restorations no matter how complex your situation may be.
Accuracy is of the utmost importance when creating the best possible impression, and the 3M True Definition Scanner is the most accurate one available. No matter how challenging the procedure – a multi-unit restoration, long-span bridge or anything else – the scanner will make a spot-on impression that will help speed your treatment.
What does this mean for you as a patient? Plenty. The benefits to you include:
We can capture and view an exact replica of your mouth with amazing precision. If you’re having a crown or bridge, this new digital dental impression tool will ensure an accurate fit that will result in long-term success. The traditional technique of taking impressions is more susceptible to bubbles and distortion that can affect accuracy.
Since the impression is sent to the lab digitally, results will be faster and better. You won’t have to deal with gooey impression materials – with the wave of a small wand, the digital dental impression scanner will instantly capture a three-dimensional image. You’ll be given a pair of 3D glasses to view your teeth so that you can gain a true understanding of how your teeth truly look.
