Digital Impressions – Midtown East, New York, NY

Accurate, Mess-Free Impressions

At Drs. Boyd, we’re proud to invest in technology that enables us to help every one of our patients have an experience that is as comfortable and efficient as possible. That’s why we often use a digital impression system instead of traditional physical impressions. This remarkable tool produces accurate renderings of teeth with no mess and no hassle.

How Digital Impressions Work

If you have ever had a physical impression taken, you may remember the dentist putting a goopy material in a U-shaped tray. Then, you had to hold the tray in your mouth and keep perfectly still while the material slowly hardened around your teeth.

The digital impressions system is a big improvement over physical impressions in terms of patient comfort. We simply move an intraoral wand around the mouth. It captures images of the teeth and assembles them into an accurate 3D rendering. We use digital impressions as the basis for designing Invisalign trays, dentures, bridges, crowns, and other restorations. The process of taking the impressions is simple, fast, and safe. The intraoral wand is small and mobile enough that patients should feel little to no discomfort.

We utilize both 3shape Trios and iTero Element scanners to achieve the highest clinical results. Each of these companies are leaders in digital dentistry, developing the highest levels of digital technology.
