Digital impressions

Taking conventional impressions using a plaster cast is a thing of the past. For capturing direct digital impressions which is much more comfortable for the patients, at the Kownacki-Dent Dental Centre, we are using a revolutionary 3D intraoral scanner.

We like all technological innovations that make our work easier and shorten the healing process, and thanks to that, they are appreciated by our patients. One of such devices is a 3D intraoral scanner used by our doctors in prosthetics, implantology and orthodontics.

What are the benefits of a 3D intraoral scanner?

  • for Precision- because digital impressions are more accurate than conventional impressions, so they eliminate the human error and the necessity to adjust the prosthesis prepared as a result of conventional impressions,
  • for Speed - it takes only few minutes to scan all teeth,
  • for Accuracy - in the case of 3D scanning it is not possible to take an inaccurate impression because when the scanner "cannot see" a part of the teeth, it will let us know during the scanning,
  • for Safety and hygiene- because the impressions are taken digitally, there is no excessive saliva,
  • for Comfort- because a perfectly fitting prosthesis or a crown means better durability, and a perfectly matched braces or orthodontic attachments mean more comfort, better effectiveness and shorter treatment,
  • for Time-efficiency - in most cases, a scan is done during a single visit, and during the next one, we have the prosthesis ready to be placed,
  • It's patient-friendly - the unpleasant process of using a plaster cast is eliminated.

The scanning process itself should not cause patients any discomfort. The scanner works quickly, and there is no need for it to touch the surface of the teeth. The resulting scan is displayed on the screen in real-time, so we can immediately assess whether it is good.

Another advantage of the intraoral scanner that everyone waiting for a prosthetic restoration will appreciate is that digital impressions are sent electronically to a prosthetic laboratory immediately. It reduces the time needed to prepare the final prosthesis by at least a couple of days. What's more, the patient can see the visualization of the final result right away.
