Understanding Digital Impressions in Dentistry

Posted on 3/22/2021 by Platte Valley Dental Care
Understanding Digital Impressions in DentistryA dental impression is the accurate mold of a person's teeth. Traditionally, this procedure is conducted by taking a negative imprint of a person's teeth and using that imprint to create a mold. Advancements in technology have enabled dentists to replicate the hard and soft tissue in the mouth using optical scanners. These digital impressions can be completed in minutes without causing any discomfort to the patient. But what is a dental impression used for?

Digital Dental Impression Importance

Veneers, crowns, dentures, bridges, and other restorations for your teeth are made from dental impressions. The mold that is created allows dentists to understand the structure of your mouth before starting the procedure. By taking a digital dental impression, a dentist can capture high levels of detail and ensure your restoration goes smoothly. Complicated dental procedures are reduced to short sitting, and you can quickly go home if your dentist has your dental impressions.

Benefits of Digital Dental Impression

Dental impressions are less sloppy than conventional methods. Patients with gag reflex and hyper-sensitivity can comfortably go through this procedure. These impressions are used when your teeth are being exposed to a foreign object. Digital dental impressions are also great for patients who fear going to the dentist because it takes less time. Moreover, your set of dentures is made by digital dental impressions, so it's a pretty important and painless procedure.

To make patients feel as comfortable as possible, dentists take digital dental impressions and study the teeth structure. Instead of spending hours looking through a patient's teeth, digital dental impressions are great for extensive study.
