Our office is dedicated to staying up to date with the latest advances in dental technology to provide you with high-quality dental care. During your visit, we may use a digital scanner to capture three-dimensional images of your mouth. Using a digital scanner allows our team to examine the state of your teeth and supporting structures before confirming an official diagnosis. By having this technology right at our fingertips, we can easily detect problems, create digital models of your mouth and develop personalized treatment plans.
With a digital scanner, we are able to view images of your mouth in full color, so we can easily distinguish between healthy and diseased tissue. For the scanning process, we place a small wand inside your mouth for only a few minutes to capture multiple scans. After this is done, our dentist and team can pull up these images as a reference when planning your treatment and create digital models. This model is useful if you are looking into dental implants or an oral appliance.
