Digital dentistry

Why prefer intraoral scanners over traditional procedures?

intraoral Scanner and 3D printer to create precision work in the mouth, certainly not a very comfortable environment in which to work, it has always been necessary to reproduce the situation of the mouth in models, on which it is then possible carry out operations with precision and accuracy. Accuracy is what then allows a job to work over the years. To obtain the models, liquid plaster was poured into the mouth impressions, which were printed on the teeth like negatives.

These materials often had unpleasant odors and tastes, which associated with the sensation of having a full mouth and during the extraction of the hardened cast, the sensation of strong pressure on the teeth, gave an unpleasant experience for the patient . The advent of digital has revolutionized the way people work in many sectors of industry and health, as well as dentistry. Soft material impressions have been replaced by intraoral scanners, which have achieved comparable, and sometimes higher precision values ​​than traditional analog techniques.

How do intraoral scanners work?

The intraoral scanner is a video camera that inserted into the mouth, scans the dental arches and reproduces a digital model. The benefits are innumerable. The scan does not bother the patient or feel like vomiting. The files can be stored on the PC without having to physically have them in the office. You can work and design directly on the computer by digitally creating the works, as an engineer does with his pieces. It is not necessary to repeat the impression every time, because the model, being a file, does not get damaged but can be copied and pasted as many times as you want. The scanner scans the colors, so it is easier to communicate with the patient and explain their oral situation. The color of the teeth can be determined with the scanner so as to reproduce more aesthetically faithful teeth in the dental laboratory.

You can work with the best laboratories around the world because files can also be sent by email. In addition, digital models, in case you want to touch them by hand, can be printed with a 3D printer

The printer injects particles of resin that form the model as a printer does on paper with ink. The processes are much cleaner and more hygienic as it does not get dirty with dust or plaster. The models are much more resistant, as the resin is more resistant to accidental fracture. The precision of a machine like the one present at the dr gallon dental center is exhilarating, and has no distortions or bubbles related to the material. Digital dentistry, in addition to having revolutionized the possibilities in terms of diagnosis and communication, has also created new opportunities, created by new aesthetic materials, without metal that can be cemented to the teeth at a minimum biological cost and with a reduction in time and number of sessions.
