What is Digital Impression Taking & Why Should You Consider It?

As a dentist that relies on conventional impression-taking, chances are you’re familiar with:

  • Cumbersome tasks such as selecting trays, preparing materials, disinfecting impressions and organizing couriers;

  • Imprecision caused by drags, voids and bubbles in impression material;

  • Patients complaining about uncomfortable trays, gagging and retakes;

  • Lost productivity as ill-fitting restorations necessitate repeat appointments and remakes.

Indeed, predictable and accurate impressions and bite registrations have always been one of the more difficult procedures to perform consistently. A host of variables present daily challenges, making conventional impression-taking an inexact science.

 

Are you aware that

  • 50% of conventional impressions do not show the entire preparation margin needed to fabricate a dental prosthesis;

  • 90% of conventional impressions have incomplete registration of finish lines;

  • And as a result, 36% of dentists retake impressions three or more times per month.

Digital dentistry, however, has arrived and is set to revolutionize your practice’s efficiency, flexibility and overall patient experience.

Digital technology eliminates many chemical processes, meaning that error accumulation during both treatment and the manufacturing cycle is minimized.  With intra-oral scanners, we can say goodbye to:

  • Air bubbles, drags and voids

  • Tray displacement and movement

  • Insufficient/inadequate impression material or adhesive

  • Distortion from disinfecting procedures

  • Problems during transit
