Roswell, GA (PRWEB) July 15, 2013
The Roswell, GA dentist team at Shenk Dental Care is proud to announce that they will now be using digital technology to take impressions of their patients’ teeth. As testament to their ongoing commitment to professional excellence and superior patient care, Drs. Judd and Michael Shenk recently integrated the 3M™ True Definition Scanner into the practice’s dental care regimen.
Advances in technology have eliminated the need for the messy putty and trays customarily used to obtain impressions of patients’ teeth. With the 3M™ True Definition Scanner, a Roswell, GA dentist can quickly and accurately scan the patient’s mouth and bite using a digital impression system. The 3M™ True Definition scans images and then transmits them to a laboratory computer so that a precise model of the patient’s mouth can be created.
The 3M™ True Definition Scanner’s digital technology offers several advantages over traditional methods used for taking impressions. The new scanner enables doctors at Shenk Dental Care to view each patient’s case in stunning detail, reducing inaccuracies and producing a more truthful rendering of patients’ mouths. The digital impressions also process data much faster, which in turn expedites the turnaround time at the lab. The improved efficiency and more accurate results from digital files decrease the number of follow-up visits needed and allow Drs. Shenk to better communicate the patients’ needs with the lab.
Digital technology also helps Drs. Shenk provide a better experience for their patients. Many patients find traditional putty and tray impression methods very unpleasant and uncomfortable. Besides eliminating that discomfort altogether, the detailed images produced by the scanner gives patients a better understanding of their unique oral situation and treatment plan.
