If you are familiar with the goop that dentists used to use to take an impression of your mouth, you understand just how uncomfortable it can be. If you are tired of gagging on the putty, Dr. Matt Gaworski Orthodontics and Falcon Ortho have digital impressions available. We can use these to collect the necessary information we need to provide you with the orthodontic treatment you deserve. Learn more about this process below, and reach out to us to make an appointment in Colorado Springs or Falcon.
An Overview of Digital Impressions
A digital impression uses a digital scanner to create a picture of your teeth. Essentially, we will use this tool to create a map of your bite, your teeth, and your gums. We want to figure out where each tooth is located. That way, whatever oral appliance we use will fit in your mouth perfectly.
Once we collect the necessary data, we will use it to craft a retainer, braces, or anything else that we might need to improve the alignment of your teeth and your smile. We believe digital impressions are more convenient and accurate than the traditional method of taking impressions.
Why Use Digital Impressions?
We use digital Impressions to collect the information we need for several reasons. First, they tend to be more cost-effective. Because we don’t have to worry about purchasing the material every time we take an impression, we may be able to help you save money. Digital impressions also tend to be more accurate than the traditional method. When the accuracy improves, the quality of our patient care improves.
Of course, digital impressions are also significantly more comfortable. We want to treat our patients the way we treat our family members and friends, which is why we use digital impressions.
What Is the Next Step?
After taking a digital impression, we will use the information to figure out how to care for your oral health. For example, we might use this information to create a retainer or mouthguard to fit your mouth. Or, we can use a digital impression to figure out how to improve your upper and lower jaw alignment.
Because this is handled on a case-by-case basis, we encourage you to reach out to us to make an appointment. That way, we can figure out exactly what we have to do to provide you with the care you deserve.
