Getting physical impressions of your mouth used to be regarded as a lengthy and at times, an uncomfortable procedure. Physical impressions require you to bite into a molding material for extended intervals, which can be problematic for individuals with a powerful gag reflex. That is the reason why our team of dentists is pleased to offer a modern solution to molds with digital impressions. Utilizing the innovative technology of intraoral cameras, digital impressions take exact scans of your mouth. This makes it possible for us to make an exact model of your mouth, which can be used to make dental crowns, implants, inlays, onlays, dentures, and much more. If you are needing restorative dental care, eliminate the time and stress of physical molds by using digital impressions at SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach in Pompano Beach, FL.
Digital impressions are excellent for individuals of all ages that have a sensitive gag reflex and/or patients who wish to stay away from the stress of molds. Our team utilizes digital impressions to create custom dental restorations, like a bridge, crown, onlay, inlay, dentures, or even removable aligners (such as ClearCorrect or Invisalign). Digital impressions are excellent for producing precise digital versions of your mouth, which may be sent straight to a dental lab.
What to Expect
In this process, you may sit in a treatment chair while a member of our team moves a small scanning wand all around your mouth. This instrument employs safe wavelengths to exactly capture all regions, crevices, and corners of your mouth. Once the scan is done, an image of your teeth will soon show up on the screen. If any areas were overlooked during the first scan, then an easy re-scan will be performed to capture the needed areas, rather than utilizing physical molds that would necessitate the whole procedure to be redone.
Once your digital scans are completed, they'll be sent to a dental laboratory. As soon as your orthodontic or restoration treatment is created from your digital scans, we will have the ability to finish your therapy. We will keep your scans in your file. This can make it faster to obtain additional restorations and to monitor changes in your mouth.
Your dental insurance may cover your digital scans. A member of our staff will help determine your benefits through your insurance carrier. We're happy to work together with you to make sure that the payment process is easy, and we will notify you of any additional costs. If you don't have insurance, then SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach accepts many payments and will be able to help you to find low-interest financing.
