Digital Impressions: Faster, Better, Easier

Did you know that traditional dental impressions with their signature “goop” feel now have a more efficient, accurate, and comfortable alternative? With digital impressions, you won’t have to worry about drool during a lengthy and awkward process because it’s entirely goop-free!

Do You Regret Making A Bad Impression?

Patient receiving traditional impressionIf you’ve ever had to squeeze your smile into a traditional impression mold, you probably recognized pretty quickly how uncomfortable it was to breathe, speak, or swallow while you waited for it to form.

Let’s face it: goopy impressions just don’t feel right–they’re bulky, messy, and even with so many potent flavors to choose from, it can be difficult to convince yourself you’re enjoying your time. Traditional impression molds are also prone to leaving wiggle room around the teeth (making them less accurate), and waiting for each mold to form can be taxing to both patients and dentists alike.

Benefits of Our Digital Impression System

Patient undergoing digital impressionDigital impressions allow dentists to create a cutting-edge, highly accurate replica of the hard and soft tissues of your mouth. By using optical scanning devices such as intraoral imaging, a digital scan takes just seconds, which means less time in the chair for patients, and no mess!

More benefits include:

  • Better-fitting restorations are possible with the improved impression quality.
  • No mess, which means less stress and less wait for the impression to form.
  • Patients who have a sensitive gag reflex won’t require a distasteful impression.
  • For patients with dental anxiety, a digital image is far less stressful than a mold.
  • Dentists won’t have to retake or remake a faulty mold.
  • Patients can feel better educated about their dental health since their virtual impression can be observed on-screen with a chairside review with Dr. Asinmaz.

When it comes down to digital impressions versus traditional impressions, the reduction in guesswork and errors alone place digital dentistry as the clear winner. And, because digital impressions do not need to be physically sent to a lab, patients experience higher satisfaction when more can be done in a single visit.

Will I Need A Dental Impression?

Because digital impressions are more effective, accurate, and comfortable than the traditional alternative, Dr. Asinmaz is able to provide better service in just one appointment and can provide solutions faster with no loss in quality.

Should you require a digital impression, ask Dr. Asinmaz for a tour of your dental health, as the virtual image of your teeth can be easily reviewed in detail on a chairside screen.
