Intraoral Scanner and 3D Printer
Here at DFWOMS we use a 3Shape Trios® scanner, which is a leading brand of intraoral scanner to provide accurate and safe results for our patients. These scans are safe and performed without radiation in the span of a few minutes. Just like traditional impressions, these can be used to facilitate dental restorations, fabrications of night guards, and aid in surgical planning.
The benefits of intraoral scanning include:
– Increased accuracy as compared to traditional restorations
– Less mess – no need for messy alginate impressions
– Decreased gagging – no impression material that results in a gag reflex for many patients
– Allows for patient-specific surgical planning
