The methods that dentists have used to obtain a copy of the inside of a patient’s mouth have changed considerably over time, but the most common method has proven to be the use of a rubber-like material that dries to create an impression of the teeth and jaw. This method requires leaving this material in the mouth for several minutes, causing many people to gag or choke, and other discomfort. We have done away with this practice at the InternationalCenter for Advanced Dentistry, and replaced it with a digital intra-oral scanning system. This new system m allows us to take high-resolution digital images of the inside of your mouth that we can use to design orthodontics and make diagnoses. Because we have eliminated the rubbery materials for impressions, scans take only a few seconds to complete and are more accurate.In combination with our other developed dental technologies, intra-oral scanning is helping us become a more advanced practice.
Why we use intra-oral scanning:
Safe and easy
Because we hold ourselves at such a high standard at theInternational Center for Advanced Dentistry, we take the time to find which new technologies are best for our patients. Call today if you have any questions about our digital scanning systems or any of our other modern equipment and procedures. We are here to build you a smile to be proud of.
