3 Reasons why you should use intraoral scanners in your practice rather than impression putty.

With the advent of new technology, dental scanners have become increasingly popular in dental clinics. Dentists are now able to obtain accurate digital impressions of their patients’ teeth without the use of uncomfortable, goopy impression materials. Not only are intraoral scanners more comfortable for patients, but they also provide a host of other benefits for both dentists and clinics. Here are three reasons why digital dental intraoral scanners should be your go-to solution for all your

1. Intraoral scanners are more accurate than traditional impression methods.

One of the main reasons why you should switch to using intraoral scanners is because they are much more accurate than traditional impression methods. With traditional impression methods, there is always the potential for errors to be made when taking the impression or when pouring up the model. However, with intraoral scanners, you can be sure that you’re getting an accurate digital representation of your patient’s teeth. This is because the scanner takes advantage of specific software that is designed to fit together teeth models with extreme accuracy. As a result, you can be confident that you’re providing your patients with the best possible care.

2. Intraoral scanners save time.

Another reason to switch to using intraoral scanners is that they can save you a significant amount of time. Traditional impression methods can often take several minutes to complete, and then additional time must be spent waiting for the impressions to set before they can be scanned or used to make models. On the other hand, intraoral scanning only takes a few seconds per arch, and the digital file can be immediately sent off for analysis or printing. This means that you can get on with your day without having to wait around for impressions to set!

3. Intraoral scanners improve patient anxiety.

As we mentioned before, one of the main advantages of intraoral scanners is that they improve patient comfort. Many patients find traditional impression materials to be uncomfortable and even gag-inducing. This can often lead to anxiety and stressful appointments for both dentist and patient alike. However, with intraoral scanners, there is no need for any uncomfortable materials! The scanner simply takes a few quick pictures of the teeth and gums, meaning that appointments are quicker and less anxiety-inducing for everyone involved.


Digital dental intraoral scanners provide numerous benefits over traditional impression methods—including accuracy, time-saving capabilities, and improved patient comfort levels.
