What is an Invisalign scan?
Have you ever had a goopy, messy dental impression? Traditionally, dental impressions were taken using putty like materials to make molds of your teeth and gums. These types of impressions were all dentists had until digital scanning technology came about! Traditional dental impressions are still used in many dental offices, but they can annoy patients due to gagging, discomfort and messes on your face and clothes from the impression material.
A digital scan of your teeth is the alternative to dental impressions. Digital scans may be more comfortable to the patient and in many cases, they are more accurate. Dr. Bracy offers 3M digital scanning technology in his NYC dental office.
