Barker Dentistry & Implant Center is always looking for new and improved ways to make the patient experience better. One way we do this is by acquiring the latest dental technologies for a faster and more convenient visit. To create the most accurate restorations possible, we use digital dental impressions.
We take digital dental impressions by using an intraoral scanner. In the past, dentists would use a gooey, messy substance you’d have to hold in your mouth. This would be especially difficult for those who had a high gag reflex.
With our intraoral scanner, we can generate 3D scans of your entire mouth, which can instantly be seen and shared on a computer screen.
The intraoral scanner looks like a small wand. The dentist will wave it around the inside of your mouth as it begins to generate a model of what it sees in a three-dimensional space. Once the dentist has finished tracing the placement of your teeth and gums, we can use it to plan surgeries and create dental restorations. The process is fast and easy!
Having a dentist who strives to get their hands on the latest technology means they’re willing to go above and beyond to make your visit a great experience. That’s exactly what our goal is at Barker Dentistry & Implant Center. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
