Advanced Technology at Your Service
At Zest Pediatric Dentistry, we don’t use traditional alginate impressions (the gooey stuff)! Instead, we use a state-of-the-art digital wand to take images of your child’s teeth. These digital scans do not emit radiation and offer several advantages over alginate impressions:
- Comfort: digital impressions are more comfortable for patients as they do not require the use of trays and alginate material, which often causes gagging.
- Speed: digital impressions are immediately available and can be sent to the laboratory for appliance fabrication within minutes, while traditional impressions can take days to process. They are also easy to share with other dental professionals, improving communication between providers.
- Accuracy: they provide a highly accurate 3D representation of the teeth and gums, leading to more precise imaging and better fitting dental appliances.
- Environmentally friendly: digital impressions eliminate the need for impression materials and trays, reducing waste and contributing to a more environmentally friendly practice.
Overall, digital impressions offer a more precise, efficient, and comfortable alternative to alginate impressions, making your child’s experience as pleasant as possible. Call our office at (843) 321-9944 to schedule your child’s appointment.
