About 3D Impressions
For the longest time, having physical impressions of your teeth was a lengthy and uncomfortable process. Physical impressions require you to bite into a mold for long periods of time, which may be an issue for some patients who have a powerful gag reflex. Because of this, our pediatric dental team proudly offers an alternative to physical molds with 3D impressions. Using advanced intraoral cameras, 3D or electronic impressions take precise scans of your teeth. These 3D images enable our team to create an exact model of your mouth, which helps us make dental restorations, like crowns, implants, onlays, inlays, dentures, Invisalign® clear aligners, and more. If you need restorative dentistry services or orthodontic work, avoid the stress and time of physical molds with 3D impressions at Lancaster Pediatric Dental Associates in Lancaster, PA.

Am I a good candidate for 3D impressions?
Digital impressions work well for patients of all ages who have a sensitive gag reflex and/or people who want to stay away from the stress of physical molds. One of our dentists will use digital impressions if you need a custom dental restoration, such as a bridge, crown, onlay, inlay, dentures, or removable orthodontic aligners (like Invisalign). Digital impressions produce precise digital versions of your teeth, which we can send directly to a dental lab or in-office CEREC machine.
What to Expect during 3D impressions
During this procedure, you can relax in the treatment chair while we move a small scanning wand around your mouth. This tool emits safe imaging wavelengths to precisely capture all areas, corners, and crevices of your teeth. Once the scan is complete, an image of your teeth will show up on the monitor. If we overlooked any areas during the initial scan, we can easily re-scan the needed parts of your mouth. When compared to regular molds, we would have to repeat the entire process.
Do 3D impressions require follow-up?
We send your 3D impressions to a dental lab or an in-office CEREC system. After reviewing your child's digital scans and creating his or her orthodontic or restoration treatment, we will have the ability to start their therapy. Additionally, we will keep your scans on file. This will make it faster if you need a new restoration and to compare changes in your teeth and dental health.
Our group can help coordinate benefits through your insurance carrier.
