One of the first thoughts that come to mind when seeking an orthodontic specialist for getting braces is…”does it hurt?” Most patients associate that thought with braces and Invisalign, while being unaware of a necessary procedure before actually getting them on. That procedure is called “impressions.” Maybe you have heard of it. It is the dreaded goo that is squished into your mouth, oozing out of every crevice between your teeth, leaving you with the feeling that you have just been slimed. Some can handle it, but many others are not so lucky. For patients with a sensitive gag reflex, this can be the most dreaded part of getting your teeth straightened.
If you haven’t scheduled your complimentary consultation yet, get started today. You have nothing to lose, only confidence to gain!
Simply put, the Element scanner digitally captures the form and structure of the tooth and gum line through a series of pictures. No need for goopy impression material. Digital impressions provide greater accuracy when creating the patient model and increased comfort for the patient. Let’s be honest, no one likes to gag when giving a first impression…no pun intended.
