What Are 3D Impressions?

For many patients, having dental impressions taken can be a lengthy, sometimes uncomfortable process. Physical impressions require you to bite into a plaster mold for extended periods of time, which can be problematic for individuals with a sensitive gag reflex. For this reason, Dr. Todd K. Baum is pleased to offer a modern solution to molds with 3D impressions. Using the advanced technology of intraoral cameras, 3D (also called digital) impressions take precise scans of your mouth. This makes it possible for us to create an accurate model of your mouth that can be employed to make dental restorations like crowns, implants, inlays, onlays, dentures, and more. If you're needing restorative dental work, avoid the time and stress of physical molds with 3D impressions at Dr. Todd K. Baum, DDS, PC in Grand Ledge, MI.

How Are 3D Impressions Taken?

Digital impressions can be a great benefit for patients of all ages, especially those who have a strong gag reflex that might make traditional impressions challenging. Dr. Baum employs 3D impressions if you need a custom restoration, like a crown, bridge, onlay, inlay, dentures, or even removable orthodontic aligners (like Invisalign® or ClearCorrect). 3D impressions are ideal for producing precise digital models of your teeth, which may be sent straight to a dental laboratory or our CEREC machine.
