SOUTHERN PINES, N.C., March 29, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Esteemed periodontist in Southern
Traditionally, patients requiring dental treatment to restore cosmetic or functional problems with their teeth had to have conventional, paste-based impressions taken of their teeth. The impression material was loaded onto a tray similar in appearance to a mouth guard and pressed around the teeth and gums. Once cured, a negative of the teeth and gums could be used for many purposes, such as creating restorations for dental implants.
Digital impressions, however, are increasingly becoming the standard of care when it comes to taking impressions of teeth. More comfortable for the patient and much less invasive, digital impressions take highly accurate 3D images of the interior of the mouth. The Condor intra-oral scanner is a small, non-invasive hand-held device that takes digital images while it is moved across the surface of the teeth. Results are displayed on a chairside monitor in real-time, giving doctors the opportunity to educate patients about the state of their teeth during and immediately after scans are taken. The Condor scanner also improves diagnosis and accuracy of treatment planning, including the customization of the final restoration. Patients missing one or more teeth can have dental implants restored with greater customization and fit for better long-term results.
