Goodbye gooey putty, hello technology

Using 3D modeling beats messy putty when it comes to capturing teeth impressions in orthodontic care.

This is great for just about everyone, because no one really liked the messy putty: it had a funny taste and smell, and it was uncomfortable to breathe and swallow normally while waiting for it to harden.

We value our patients’ experience, which is why we have been using a state-of-the-art digital impression system for over four years. It allows us to digitally capture a color 3D model of your teeth and gums. It’s cleaner, more comfortable and faster, and it’s safe for kids, teens and adults. It also allows us to provide a smile preview and treatment simulation with Invisalign and braces, which helps keep patients more informed and motivated about the orthodontic treatment process.

Scans are available immediately, and the system allows us to get a precise fit for aligners and retainers. Bonus: we never need to retake impressions. Farewell putty, and hello faster, cleaner technology!
