Dentist in Oakmont, PA
Digital Impressions are the latest technology in capturing a replica of the mouth. By using a wand-like tool connected to a computer combined with cutting-edge software, Dr. Jason can create a virtual model of the hard and soft tissues in the mouth. These replicas are more accurate than a mold and can be used for a variety of needs. Since he can see the completed scan immediately on his monitor, he will know right away if any part of the scan needs to be redone, thus eliminating the need for an additional imaging appointment. Once he is satisfied with the scan, he immediately sends the digital impression to the lab where dentures, crowns, bridges, and retainers can be made quickly and accurately.
Digital impressions are less messy and more pleasant than the goopy traditional mold material. Patients with a severe gag reflex or sensitive teeth can enjoy a more comfortable experience while one of our highly trained team members takes the digital impression.
