The Benefits Of Digital Imaging

In our previous blog post, we discussed how dental innovations such as the 3M™ True Definition Scanner create a more comfortable experience for our patients. In this follow-up post, Dr. Cathy Santone provides an in-depth look at the benefits of digital imaging.

3M-True-DefinitionAs digital technology continues to improve in speed and accuracy, the uses of this technology continue to expand. At Encinitas Cosmetic Dentistry, we utilize the 3M™ True Definition Scanner, providing our patients with a faster, more accurate method of taking dental impressions for crowns and dental bridges, as well as orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign® and ClearCorrect™. Compared to the traditional means of obtaining impressions—which relied on the use of messy materials patients had to hold in their mouths—the digital impressions created by the 3M™ True Definition Scanner offer a number of advantages.

According to our cosmetic dentist Dr. Cathy J. Santone, some of the benefits of the 3M™ True Definition Scanner include:

  • Comfortable, no-mess 3D image capture
  • High-resolution video
  • Instant transmission of digital files for lab work
  • Improved fit of restorations
  • Significant reduction in post-procedure adjustments
  • Time-saving for both dentist and patient
  • More environmentally friendly than traditional methods

As an added benefit, the 3M™ True Definition Scanner instantly delivers an image of your gums and teeth, allowing you to gain a better understanding of the entire restoration process—and a clearer idea of the beautiful results you can expect from Encinitas Cosmetic Dentistry.
