Modern 3D Digital Impressions
One of the least pleasant parts of the traditional process for getting crowns, veneers, implants, braces, retainers, dentures, and more is taking impressions of your teeth. Thanks to cutting-edge dental technology, taking impressions is becoming a thing of the past. At The Dental Office of Chestnut Hill, we use a TRIOS scanner to take digital impressions of our patients’ teeth.
What Is An Intraoral Scanner?
Most people are unfamiliar with this type of scanning as it is so new, but it is quick and easy for the patient and gives the dentist more thorough and accurate information for treatment than impression materials. It also cuts down on the time it takes our office to complete your treatment, sometimes as dramatically as from weeks to just hours.
You Can See a 3D Map of Your Mouth in Seconds
In the old days, in order to plan a patient’s treatment and to prepare their crown or implant, we had to take the patient’s dental impression. We can now get all the information we need to plan your orthodontic treatment with a quick scan of the inside of your mouth, no dental impressions required. We can even show you the 3D map of your mouth while we’re still scanning it.
Why Is This Scanner a Good Option?
We chose the TRIOS scanner to improve our patients’ experience, minimize their treatment time and number of appointments, and to gain better information about the specific needs of each patient. We’re excited for you to benefit from this technology.
Does TRIOS Use Radiation?
Unlike certain types of medical scanning equipment, including dental X-rays, the TRIOS scanner does not have to expose the patient to any radiation to do its job. As small as the risk is from the levels of exposure involved with other scanning equipment, with TRIOS, you don’t have to worry at all about any risks outweighing the benefits.
