Digital impressions with Dentsply Sirona
Conventional VS Digital Impressions
No more goop, gagging, or discomfort. Using a Sirona scanner, your dentist can take a highly accurate digital impression. This technology eliminates the tray and putty impressions you may have once been used too. The old technique is incredibly unpleasant and frequently results in taking multiple rounds of impressions that can be rejected, broken, or misplaced. The Sirona scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital impressions give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.
How Does it Work?
The Sirona scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. Once your dental team begins the scanning process, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary.
Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser and, in as little as two to three minutes, the laser renders a digitally perfect, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures. Through digital software, you'll then be able to follow the progress of the scans, including a 3D model of your teeth on our computer screen. The Sirona scanner can be used for any restorative treatment including crowns, bridges, and implants, as well as whitening trays.
