The latest milestone in digital dentistry in our clinic is the 3 shape intra oral scanner for crown designing for root canal treated teeth and implants as well as scan for orthodontic treatments. This scanner eliminates the step of impression taking for the patient, thus preventing gagging for the patient. This technology also avoids pouring models and errors due to impression shrinkage and voids.
After the tooth is prepared, we scan the prepared teeth, adjacent teeth as well as the opposing teeth. The patient’s bite is scanned to check his/her occlusion. The software places margin of the prepared tooth with high precision and automatically creates a highly esthetic tooth.
We can scan the implant as well in a similar way and is available for all oral implant systems. This scanner automatically shows any correction to be made in the tooth preparation and the same correction can be done in the patient immediately thus making it comfortable to the patient and reducing chair side time. This image is then sent to the CAD CAM designing unit where we design the crown and process it further.
This scanner is also used for patients who need to correct their teeth alignment. The teeth are scanned and we virtually move the teeth and predict the results that can be achieved after the orthodontic treatment. With modern digital dentistry, state of art tools and intra oral scanner, we can thus save precious time, resources and at the same time provide the best possible results for the benefit of the patients.
