Having physical impressions of your mouth taken 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 strong gag reflex. That is the reason why our staff at SEDA Dental is pleased to offer a modern solution to molds with 3D impressions. Utilizing the innovative technology of intraoral cameras, 3D (also called electronic) impressions take exact scans of your mouth. This allows us to make an exact model of your mouth, which may 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 3D impressions at SEDA Dental in South Florida.
Digital impressions are ideal for individuals of all ages that have a sensitive gag reflex and/or patients who wish to stay away from the stress of physical molds. SEDA Dental uses digital impressions if you want a custom dental restoration, like a bridge, crown, onlay, inlay, dentures, or even removable orthodontic aligners (such as ClearCorrect or Invisalign). Digital impressions are ideal for producing precise digital versions of your mouth, which may be sent straight to a dental lab or our CEREC machine.
What to Expect
In this process, you may relax in a treatment chair while a little scanning wand is glided all around your mouth. This instrument uses safe wavelengths to exactly capture all regions, crevices, and corners of your mouth. Once the scan is complete, an image of your teeth will soon show up on the screen. If any areas were overlooked during the first scan, then a simple re-scan will be performed to capture the necessary areas, as opposed to utilizing physical molds that would necessitate the whole procedure to be redone.
After your scans are complete, they will be sent to a dental laboratory or our CEREC system. As soon as your orthodontic or restoration treatment is created from your scans, we will have the ability to finish your therapy. We will also keep your 3D impressions in your ongoing dental file. This can make it faster in case you want a new restoration and to also compare changes in your mouth.
