Dental technology continues to advance at an impressive rate; providers are now capable of doing so much more than what was previously possible, thanks to all of the nifty gadgets and innovative tools that are now housed within many dental offices. One of these technologies, which is well-known for leading to better-fitting, higher-quality dental restorations, is the digital impressions system. Here’s a closer look at this impressive technology and how the detailed images it creates are incredibly useful when it comes to providing top-of-the-line dental care.

A Closer Look at Digital Impression Technology

Historically, dentists have relied on the traditional, and notoriously uncomfortable, impression process to create replicas of patients’ mouths for the purpose of dental restorations. This method relied on a gooey, foul-tasting material that was applied to trays, which were then placed in a patient’s mouth. Not only was this process awkward for patients undergoing it, but there was also the possibility of inaccuracies.

However, thanks to advancements in dental technology, this can now be completed entirely digitally and non-invasively. First, your dentist will take images of your teeth using a special laser tool and digital scanner. Typically, a special type of spray is used to ensure that every part of your mouth is captured. These tools can capture and record every single detail inside of your mouth, no matter how small; with more information at their disposal, your dentist can craft astonishingly detailed and better-fitting restorations that’ll serve you well.

Priceless Benefits of Digital Impressions Systems

Dentists and their teams aren’t the only ones who benefit from this awesome technology; patients also gain access to a long list of advantages when they opt for visiting an office that utilizes digital impression systems. Consider the following:

  • Improved impression quality, which directly translates into better-quality restorations.
  • Patients ultimately spend less time in the treatment chair.
  • No gooey, foul-tasting impression material is necessary.
  • The overall margin of error is lowered since it reduces your dentist’s reliance on their hands.
  • It’s much more eco-friendly and more cost-effective than the traditional impression process.
  • The impressions can be stored electronically, which means they’re reusable and transportable!
