Our office uses an Itero machine to take digital impressions of your mouth after dental implants. If your dentist feels it is best in your situation, we schedule an appointment for you to come in and receive a digital impression.
This takes the place of a traditional ‘goopy’ impression. The scanner essentially takes thousands of pictures and compiles them into a 3D image on the screen. The impression allows the dental lab and your dentist to have an even more precise measurement and idea of your bite registry. Your dentist can then minimize your time in the chair because the crowns that are created from a digital impression are usually more precise and requires less grinding down of the crown to ensure a good fit.
