If you have ever needed braces, dentures, a crown or other work, you are probably familiar with dental impressions. Dental impressions are known to be messy and uncomfortable since a large amount of impression paste is placed in a tray, which is then held in your mouth for a long period of time. Not only do you have to deal with the taste and the sensations, but if you have a sensitive gag reflex, the process can difficult.
At Oakton Family Dentistry, our dentists, Dr. Elhady, Dr. Scimeca and associates, and our team use digital impressions to make your visit faster, easier and more comfortable. Digital impressions are more comfortable and accurate than the traditional method and much less invasive. The scanner is small but can be easily removed if you experience any discomfort. And when you are ready, we can begin scanning again right where we left off. Digital impressions can be used for braces or clear aligners, along with dental restorations.
