The technology that our team uses to get to know all of the individual aspects of your oral health have evolved drastically over the last few years, and as a result we have a series of new digital scanning machines that turn thousands of digital scans into a readable 3D image of your teeth and jaw. This allows us to take more accurate measurements for the application of things like implants, dentures, bridges, and much more. In the past, most dentists used mold impressions, but these cause many patients anxiety and discomfort, while digital scans are done in minutes with no side effects.
Lake Dental takes pride in providing our patients with the best technology that we can utilize to ensure that they are as comfortable as possible during their visit with us. We are using theses systems more often in an effort to use x-rays less, because x-rays use a small amount of radiation, while digital scanning equipment does not.
Why we use digital 3D scanning:
- Easy file transfer
- Accuracy and precision
- Patient Comfort
Any of our patients that come in for regular cleanings and more will get to use our digital 3D scanning equipment as we get to know your oral health. Don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have any questions about our other services and procedures.
