Intraoral Scanner: Fast, Comfortable, and Accurate Scanning Experience with the Simplest System
Gone are the days when dentists used messy and uncomfortable goop-based impressions. Dr. Alireza Farkhondeh, Dr. Gang Wang, and Mr. Majid Ahangaran at The Hope Dental Care Centre in Kanata, Ontario, have replaced unpleasant dental impressions with digital scanning technology. When you book an appointment with our team, expect us to use a comfortable, wand-like intraoral scanner when impressions are required. No more biting into a tray of gooey dental material — digital impression scanners have elevated the scanning experience for dentists and patients to a whole new level.
What is an intraoral scanner?
An intraoral scanner is a small handheld tool used to capture intra-oral impressions of your teeth without using conventional impression trays. Intraoral scanners project their light source to an object such as the teeth to create 3D renderings displayed in real-time on a chairside screen.
Dentists popularly use intraoral digital scanners to create impressions used to fabricate crowns, implant-supported crowns, veneers, bridges, Invisalign aligners, night guard, mouth guard, whitening trays and other prosthetics. Furthermore, we can use the 3D images generated by intraoral scanners to educate patients about their oral health, changes in their teeth by wear or progress of recession in their gums and treatment options.
Benefits of digital intraoral scanners
Traditional dental impressions have had their place over the years, but now it’s time to switch to something error-proof, comfortable, and fast.
Following are the many benefits of digital scanners.
- Comfortable: Digital scanners improve the patient’s scanning experience because they don’t involve biting into messy, gooey material. Besides, digital scanners reduce the possibility of gag reflex
- Fast results: Conventional impressions involved several remakes until the right impression was taken. Intraoral cameras generate impressions in real time, resulting in a short turnaround
- Increased accuracy: Intraoral scanners use sophisticated technology to capture your teeth’s precise shape and contours—accurate scanning leads to perfect-fitting restorations and appropriate treatments
- Enhanced patient education: With a high-resolution, magnified image of your oral cavity displayed on a screen, your dentist can effectively communicate the status of your oral health. This visual representation allows patients to clearly understand their dental condition, promoting increased engagement and commitment to the treatment plan
