SAY GOODBYE TO MESSY, UNCOMFORTABLE IMPRESSIONS

houston cosmetic dentists If your dentist has ever had to take a mold of your mouth, then you’ll already know how unpleasant this can be. Conventional impression trays can be very messy, and can even make people gag. It is often difficult for the dentist to get an accurate impression from these trays. A specific impression is essential for a high quality accurately fitting restorations.

 

Thankfully Midtown Dentistry has a better, and more advanced solution to this problem, and can take digital impressions of your mouth. We now use the 3M True Definition Tooth Scanner to scan teeth.

STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY PRODUCING DIGITALLY ACCURATE MODELS 

houston cosmetic dentist

Your Midtown Dentistry dentist will use a small, lightweight wand that is the size of a dental handpiece to take a series of digital images of your mouth. These 3-D images are used during surgery.

 

The whole process is faster than having conventional tray-based impressions. The images make for more accurate reconstruction in the laboratory. The result is an incredibly precise model of your mouth that can be used to produce high quality, precision fit appliances.

ADVANTAGES OF 3MTM TRUE DEFINITION SCANNER

There are several clear benefits to this system, and these include:

  • You’ll feel far more comfortable having digital impressions and will be able to see the images of your mouth on our screen.
  • You will receive restorations that have an exact precision fit. You will need to spend less time in the dental chair having your appliance fitted, and there is far less chance that there will be any problems with the fitting. A study[i] found that 99.84% of restorations made with this scanner were successful.
  • Conventional tray-based impressions often result in an appliance that has poorly fitting margins or edges. The accuracy of the 3M True Definition Tooth Scanner ensures all margins meet exactly, sealing out bacteria from the restored tooth and protecting it against further infection and decay.
  • The digital images are sent directly to the laboratory, along with your prescription, enabling the lab to begin work on your restorations more quickly. Your treatment will be quicker.
