Computer Aided Design and Digital Impressionsin Greensboro

Before the computer aided design era, dental impressions were like a chemistry experiment. The correct impression material had to be chosen, mixing pads, spatulas, adhesive, lubricating agents, mixing bowls and an entire selection of tray size options had to be set up. That is all before the impression taking even started! Nowadays, digital impressions have greatly simplified this process.

What You Should Know about Computer Aided Design and Digital Impressions

A scanner is used to take a series of quick intraoral images, and those images are stitched together by the computer in a matter of minutes. Boom! Impression done! From that point on, it can be sent to a lab or opened in implant planning software.

Computer-aided design (CAD) is an important part of our dental implant procedures. CAD design creates 3D models of your teeth by measuring the parameters of how light reflects off the angles of the teeth. We use computer technology, combined with a CT scan to plan the precise placement of your dental implants. Using CAD allows dental implants to be placed more comfortably and faster, and makes it easier to chew and speak normally.

With the precision of digitally planned restoration and implant placement, your treatment will be completed more efficiently and accurately with great results. Rest assured when you come into our office for any restoration process; we are using the state-of-the-art technology to ensure you the very best fit.
