Intraoral Digital Scanner
Dental impressions play an essential role when designing restorations like crowns and bridges, and more. The drawback is that the process involves using a metal tray filled with impression material and having you bite down on it until it sets. For some people—especially those with a strong gag reflex—this can be tough to sit through.
At Keledjian Dental, we’ve found a more comfortable way that eliminates the need for this step by using a state-of-the-art digital intraoral scanner. This technology eliminates the need for putty impressions in many cases and provides us with a precise representation of your teeth.
As Dr. Keledjian passes the handheld scanner over your teeth, we can view the images together on your chairside monitor. The scanner collects points of information to produce a digital map that our dentist uses to create a 3-D image of your teeth. Digital impressions are comfortable, get you out of the chair faster, and are an invaluable tool for customizing dental crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays, and onlays to your unique specifications.
