At Summit Denture Clinic, we use digital impressions that are taken using special equipment instead of traditional putty impressions. The major difference between a digital impression and a traditional one is that the digital impression is taken using an intraoral camera. 

This eliminates the need for messy, uncomfortable impression trays and ensures more accurate and precise measurements. Based on these measurements, we can design and manufacture dentures that fit naturally and comfortably.

When Is a Digital Impression Used?

Digital impressions are used instead of traditional ones because of the many advantages they offer. The process of taking digital impressions is more comfortable for patients and their accuracy ensures a better fit for their appliances.  

At Summit Denture Clinic, we use digital impressions to make models for a variety of dental appliances. Custom dentures, mouth guards, night guards, and aligners can all be made based on impressions taken using digital scanners. 

How Are Digital Impressions Taken?

A digital impression is taken using specialized hardware and software that capture images of your mouth and create a replica of your teeth and gums. The replica is then used to create a digital model of your mouth that is used by our denturist to design your dental prosthesis.

The Benefits of Digital Impressions

Digital Impressions Are More Comfortable

Digital impressions are much more comfortable for patients. Traditional impression materials stick to the teeth and gums and can cause discomfort. Digital impressions are taken using a digital scanner, without using any messy putty, and sent directly to the 3D printing machine. 

Digital Impressions Are More Accurate

Digital impressions are more accurate than traditional impressions. This means that your appliance’s fit will be more comfortable and natural and less likely to require adjustments.

Digital Impressions Are Quicker 

Before, denturists would take impressions by using a special putty or paste and metal or plastic trays. They would have to wait for the material to harden to capture the impression before sending it to the laboratory where the restoration would be manufactured.

Using digital technology, our denturist can take impressions instantly and easily transfer them digitally as needed. This reduces the time it takes patients to receive their custom appliances and ensures more precise measurements and a better fit.
