Until recently, the only method we had for taking impressions of your teeth involved a messy pink paste smeared into a large, bulky metal tray. Not only was this process uncomfortable, but the impressions weren’t always as accurate as we would like.
Our digital scanner not only does away with this uncomfortable process, but also has the added advantage of providing us with much more precise details of your teeth.
Our digital scanner produces a “digital map” that Dr. Clark uses to create a 3-D picture of your mouth. While we’re in the process of scanning your mouth, you can actually see the images as they appear on the monitor.
This advance in technology allows us to produce a very accurate and precisely detailed model of your teeth. This information is then used to plan treatment for dental restorations.
