Digital impressions allow our West New York dentists to create a computer-generated reproduction of mouth tissues using lasers and other scanning devices. The advanced dental technology captures accurate and clear impression data in minutes. There is no need for messy and inconvenient impression materials. Digital impressions at Complete Dental Works are a simpler and more comfortable procedure. The information from the impression is transferred to a computer and used to make dental restorations.
Currently, dentists in West New York use two types of digital impressions. One involves a series of digital photographs, the other a digital video. Lasers or digital optical scanning can be used to capture these images.
There are many advantages to using digital impression technology. It increases productivity, accuracy, and efficiency and makes it possible for Dr. Ro and Dr. Cantuarias to forward virtual impressions electronically to the lab, instead of having to send a traditional stone model through the mail. In addition, digital impressions are used to create same-day restorations, accelerating the treatment process and reducing the need for repeated office visits.
Digital impressions at Complete Dental Works also include:
In just 3–5 minutes the scan of the affected teeth, bite and opposing teeth can be completed.
Taking digital impressions save space because they can be stored indefinitely electronically. This makes for more efficient record keeping and eco-friendly dentistry with less paper and no disposable plastic or impression materials.
