At Gerda Family Dental, we’re proud to provide our patients with high-quality dental care and exceptional treatment outcomes. Our quality dental care is made possible, in part, by a variety of advanced dental technologies available in our office, such as a three-dimensional intraoral scanner that enables us to provide our patients with impressionless dentistry.
What Are Dental Impressions?
Traditional dental impressions were taken using dental trays and putty. They were used to create physical, three-dimensional models of patients’ teeth and other oral structures for developing patient treatment plans and the fabrication of various dental devices.
The Difference With Impressionless Dentistry
Today, digital imaging technology has paved the way for dentists to discard uncomfortable dental trays and putty in exchange for three-dimensional digital scanners. These scanners scan a patient’s mouth to create a digital three-dimensional model of their oral structures and cavity without requiring physical dental impressions.
Not only are digital impressions much more comfortable and quicker to take, but they are also highly accurate and readily shared with the most reputable dental device manufacturers.
Why You Might Need Digital Impressionless Dentistry
Impressionless dentistry has a variety of evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment applications. You might require digital dental impressions if you are seeking any of the following dental services or treatments:
- Dental implants
- Dental crowns
- Dental bridges
- Full or partial dentures
- Implant-supported dentures
- Inlays or onlays
- Dental veneers
- Invisalign or ClearCorrect aligners
If you are in need of digital dental impressions, Dr. Gerda will happily answer any questions you might have about the process and the role that impressionless dentistry plays in helping you achieve your overarching dental health and/or smile goals.
