No more goopy impressions!!! We just got our new intraoral scanner in the clinic and are starting to make use of it. We will be able to scan our patient’s teeth to monitor changes over time (such as tooth wear, shifting, etc) but we will also be able to use it as a replacement for conventional impressions for things like crowns, bridges and nightguards. The scanner takes around 50 000 photos/second and stitches them together to make a virtual model of your teeth!
