Intraoral scanners quickly and comfortably capture high-quality images of your teeth and supporting structures. These images are captured in full color, making it easy for our dentist to diagnose developing problems, and can also be used to create precise digital impressions to ensure that your restorations and oral appliances fit perfectly. Our dentist may use our intraoral scanner when providing dental crowns, night guards, and complete or partial dentures, as well as many other treatments.
When our dentist or hygiene team use the scanner, they will pass a small wand over your teeth. This wand quickly and comfortable scans the inside of your mouth, capturing and processing the images instantly to provide an immediate, complete and highly accurate image of your mouth. The scan can be stopped and started as needed to ensure your comfort, and the images are automatically saved to prevent you from needing to sit through a second scan. Once the images have been captured, our dentist and team can view them instantly on a nearby monitor to make accurate diagnoses, plan your treatments, and design any restorations, mouth guards or other oral appliances which you may need.
