Getting physical impressions of your mouth used to be regarded as a lengthy and at times, an uncomfortable procedure. Physical impressions ask that you bite into a molding material for long intervals, which can be problematic for individuals with a powerful gag reflex. That is the reason why dentist Dr. Mauricio Antezana is pleased to provide a modern solution to molds with 3D impressions. Utilizing the innovative technology of intraoral cameras, 3D (also called electronic) impressions take exact scans of your mouth. This makes it possible for us to make an exact model of your mouth, which may be employed to make dental crowns, implants, inlays, onlays, dentures, and much more. If you are needing restorative dental care, eliminate the time and stress of physical molds by using 3D impressions at SEDA Dental in Boca Raton, FL.
Digital impressions are excellent for individuals of all ages that have a sensitive gag reflex and/or patients who wish to stay away from the stress of molds. Dr. Antezana employs digital impressions in case you want a custom restoration, like a bridge, crown, onlay, inlay, dentures, or even removable aligners (such as ClearCorrect or Invisalign). Digital impressions are excellent for producing precise digital versions of your mouth, which may be sent straight to a dental lab or a CEREC machine.
What to Expect
In this process, you may sit in a treatment chair while Dr. Antezana moves a little scanning wand all around your mouth. This instrument employs safe wavelengths to exactly capture all regions, crevices, and corners of your mouth. Once the scan is done, an image of your teeth will soon show up on the screen. If any areas were overlooked during the first scan, then an easy re-scan will be performed to capture the needed areas rather than utilizing physical molds that would necessitate the whole procedure to be redone.
Once your digital scans are completed, they will be sent to a dental laboratory or a CEREC system. As soon as your orthodontic or restoration treatment is created from your digital scans, Dr. Antezana will have the ability to finish your therapy. He will keep your scans in your file. This can make it faster in case you want another restoration and to also compare changes in your mouth.
Your dental insurance may cover your digital scans. A member of our staff will help determine your benefits through your insurance carrier. We are happy to work together with you to make sure that the payment process is easy, and we will notify you of any additional costs. If you do not have insurance, then SEDA Dental takes many payments, and we will be able to help you find low-interest financing.
