Precise and patient-friendly: the digital 3-D impression
If the treatment goal is a crown, bridge, implant or occlusal splint, precise impressions of teeth and jaws are indispensable for a perfect fit of the work. An alternative to the impression with "tray" and impression material is the digital 3-D imaging of the teeth. The complex relief is captured three-dimensionally with a handy intraoral scanner - quickly, precisely and lifelike. We recommend this patient-friendly method for the fabrication of individual impression models, especially in the case of strangulation anxiety in view of conventional treatment.
