Digital Tooth Scan:
Do you remember the gooey impressions or molds that orthodontists and dentists used to take?
Great news! Digital scanners replace the need for these gooey molds.
What is a digital scanner?
Digital scanners are used to take detailed 3D images of your teeth
Why do I need a digital scan?
Digital scans are used for many things:
- They are used so that we have an accurate, detailed record of your teeth and bite.
- To study your teeth and track your treatment progress
- To make 3D printed appliances such as expanders and Herbst appliances
- To make your clear aligners (like Invisalign or Spark)
- To make retainers
Does it hurt?
How long does it take?
From start to finish, a scan takes less than 3 minutes
Is it an xray?
No. Our digital tooth scans are not xrays. They are lot of pictures of your teeth that get digitally spliced together to make a 3D model of your teeth. Technology is so cool!
