At TriCity Dental Specialists, we are equipped with the most advanced, high technology intraoral scanner.
An intraoral scanner is a device that is used to capture a direct optical impression. The scanner projects a light source onto the area to be scanned. The images are captured by imaging sensors and are processed by scanning software, which then produces a 3D model. We use these impressions to have an accurate location of your teeth and allows us to plan for various dental treatments such as implant therapy. Digital impressions remove the necessity for materials that require to set in the mouth. This strongly reduces discomfort for individuals that have hypersensitive gag reflexes.
