No one looks forward to having dental impressions made. The gooey consistency and how it hardens awkwardly is no fun. But guess what? The goo is gone for good. At least, at Chelian Orthodontics it is. When you come in to be evaluated for braces in Nashua, you’ll be treated to an updated experience.
Yep. Dr. Chelian has gone digital and the benefits are huge. Below, we’re going to explain the top 4 benefits of digital impressions and why they’re beneficial when you’re being evaluated for braces in Nashua.
By switching to digital impressions, Dr. Chelian can get the necessary information to the lab in moments rather than days. Not only that, it takes significantly less time to take a digital impression than a traditional one. We can see your scans onscreen immediately, and then send them off to Invisalign quickly.
With digital impressions, Dr. Chelian can scan the top and bottom arches more efficiently. What does that mean for you? It means you can take breaks and won’t have to sit still as long. Another benefit is that patients at Chelian Orthodontics get to see their teeth in a 3D image. This really helps them to understand how Invisalign® or braces will help correct their specific issue. Ultimately, the best benefit for patients is that there’s no ooey-gooey mess. This makes getting braces in Nashua much more comfortable and less stressful.
When impressions are stored digitally, Dr. Chelian can send it anywhere in a snap. Because of that, he’s able to select the best companies to partner with in order to help patients get the best results possible. Plus, if you’re looking at Invisalign or Invisalign Teen as an option, these digital impressions can help to show a simulation of your potential post-treatment smile. Time to get excited!
Digital impressions are simply more accurate than traditional impressions. With traditional impressions, if one bite mark is off, it can mess up the entire process. Whereas with digital impressions, those mistakes and miscalculations don’t occur because every detail of a patient’s bite is captured with precision.
So, moral of this digital tale – digital impressions at Chelian Orthodontics are a step into the future. They’re just one of the many reasons that make getting braces in Nashua at Chelian Orthodontics such a fantastic experience.
