Advanced Dental Technology – Oklahoma City, OK
Bringing the Best Technology to You
Traditional dental technology is still used in countless dental offices throughout the country. At First Impressions Dentistry, though, we believe in using more innovative solutions to not only improve treatment accuracy and precision but also create optimal comfort for our patients. With digital dental impressions, a CT/Cone Beam Scanner, and an intraoral camera, dental appointments can remain efficient, effective, and comfortable – three components that benefit our patients and our staff. Learn more about the advanced dental technologies in Oklahoma City that we use below.
Digital Dental Impressions
Our iTero digital impression system is designed to replace the use of cold, messy dental putty. Instead of causing a gag reflex in those who struggle with traditional impressions, our updated and innovative device scans a patient’s teeth to create a three-dimensional model on a chairside monitor. Once adjustments are made, the model is sent to a dental lab, where technicians begin to craft the corresponding restoration (i.e., dental crown, veneer, bridge, etc.).
CT/Cone Beam Scanner
Whether it is dental implant placement or root canal treatment that is required, our CT/cone beam scanner can be used to ensure more accurate treatment planning. When it comes to complex dental procedures, this device allows our team to take a more in-depth look at the various oral and facial structures that exist so that appropriate depths and positioning can be calculated ahead of time for a more streamlined and successful surgery.
Patients no longer have to wonder what might be going on inside their mouths thanks to the intraoral camera. Used by dentists to pinpoint areas of concern, the device is also used to show patients the extent of any damage that may exist as well as what can be done to treat the area and why it’s so important to maintain good oral hygiene between appointments. Many dentists believe this instrument to be a valuable educational tool for anyone who wants to improve their oral health.
