Digital Impressions

The Lasting Impression is here! The latest digital technology allows us to capture your exact tooth anatomy down to the micron level using our digital scanner. No more messy, goopy, make-me-gag impressions. By waving what looks like an electric toothbrush over your teeth for 8-12 minutes in a simple rolling action, we create an exact digital, 3-D replica of your teeth! No radiation. No cheek retractors. No stone impressions. Once this digital impression is captured, we use a 3-D printer to print models of your teeth and make as many retainers as you would like!


The Lasting Impression is Great For:

  • Ordering replacement retainers over the phone from anywhere in the world! No need to come back into the office for another scan! As long as your original retainer still fits, the new one will fit too.
  • Creating clear aligners for minor tooth movements for relapse patients. Not been so great about wearing your retainer and now your teeth have moved ever so slightly? You may be a candidate for our clear aligners. If the necessary movements can be made in 2-3 trays, our doctors could create the clear trays to get you back to perfection, in-house, and for a fraction of the cost of full treatment using commercial aligning systems. Call us for a complimentary consultation.

Whether your dog ate your retainer or you just need some fresh plastic, when you have a digital impression saved with our office, we can have a new retainer on the way to your home in just a couple of days.
