At Centro Dental Mahaai we use a digital scanner, this modern technique had a lot of advantages for our patients, some of them are:
Improved impression quality, resulting in precision-fitting restorations.
Less chair time required as it can take just a few minutes to scan
Digital impressions are far more pleasant for patients who struggle with conventional impressions, especially for people with strong gag reflexes, anxiety, or fears when receiving dental treatment.
Eliminating the use of conventional materials can reduce impression-taking errors, resulting in fewer remakes.
Digital dental impressions are an eco-friendly way to take impressions because the process eliminates the need for disposable impression trays and impression materials that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
Turnaround times are faster because the digital file is instantly sent to the dental lab and there is no need to spend time casting up a traditional working model.
A digital scan can be magnified and evaluated by the dentist while the patient is still in the chair so if there are any errors, they can be corrected before the file is submitted to the dental lab.
The ability to see the impression on-screen in the surgery allows dentists to check tooth preparations more accurately and to modify preps if required.
