At Diamond Dental of Sacramento, we are committed to providing our patients with the highest standard of dental care, and we believe in leveraging cutting-edge technology to enhance your dental experience. One such innovation that has revolutionized the way we diagnose and treat dental issues is the intraoral scanner.
What Is an Intraoral Scanner?
An intraoral scanner is a state-of-the-art digital imaging device that has replaced the traditional, often uncomfortable, process of taking physical dental impressions. Our skilled dentists use a handheld wand equipped with a small camera and light source to capture incredibly detailed 3D images of your oral cavity. These images include your teeth, gums, and surrounding structures, allowing us to create precise digital models of your mouth.
The Advantages of Intraoral Scanners
One of the key benefits of intraoral scanners is the enhanced comfort they offer to our patients. Say goodbye to the messy and sometimes gag-inducing impressions of the past. With intraoral scanning, there is no need for goopy materials or lengthy waiting times for impressions to set. The process is quick, comfortable, and remarkably accurate.
Precision and Efficiency in Treatment Planning
These digital impressions are invaluable when it comes to treatment planning. Our dentists utilize the detailed 3D models to diagnose dental issues with a level of precision that was once unimaginable. Whether you require restorative procedures such as crowns or bridges, orthodontic evaluations, or custom appliances like night guards, our intraoral scanners ensure that your treatment plan is tailored to your unique needs.
