What are Digital Impressions?
Getting physical impressions of your mouth used to be regarded as a lengthy and at times, uncomfortable procedure. Physical impressions ask that you bite into a molding material for protracted intervals, which can be problematic for individuals with a sensitive gag reflex. That is the reason why dentist Dr. Jeffrey Weller is pleased to give a modern solution to molds with 3D impressions. Utilizing the innovative technology of intraoral cameras, 3D (also called electronic) impressions take exact scans of your mouth. This enables us to make an exact model of your mouth, which may be utilized to make dental crowns, implants, inlays, onlays, dentures, and much more. If you are needing restorative dental care, eliminate the time and stress of physical molds by using 3D impressions at Weller Dental in Chicago or Hinsdale, IL.

Am I A Candidate?
Digital impressions are great for individuals that have a sensitive gag reflex with the procedure needed for traditional molds or are looking for an accurate impression in order to create comfortable restorations. Dr. Weller utilizes digital impressions should you want a custom restoration, like a bridge, crown, onlay, inlay, dentures, or even removable aligners (such as Invisalign). Digital impressions are great for producing precise digital versions of your mouth, which may be sent straight to a state-of-the-art dental lab where the restoration will be created before being sent back to our facility.
What Can I expect?
In this process, you may lie back in a treatment chair while Dr. Weller moves a small scanning instrument all around your mouth. This instrument utilizes safe wavelengths to exactly capture all regions, crevices, and corners of your mouth. Once the scan is complete, an image of your teeth will soon show up on a connected computer screen. If any areas were overlooked during the first scan, then a very simple re-scan will be performed to capture the additional areas, as opposed to utilizing physical molds that would necessitate the whole procedure to be redone.
What is the Follow Up?
When your 3D scans are completed, they'll be sent to a state-of-the-art dental laboratory specially chosen by Dr. Weller. As soon as your orthodontic or restoration treatment is created from your 3D impressions, Dr. Weller will complete your therapy through the necessary additional treatments. He will also keep your digital scans in your file in case you want a replacement restoration in the future and also to compare changes in your mouth.
Can I Use my Insurance?
If you have dental insurance, it may cover the cost of your digital scans. We will help determine your benefits through your insurance carrier. We are happy to work with you to make sure that the payment process is as easy as possible and we will notify you of any additional costs. If you do not have insurance, then Weller Dental takes many payment options and we will be able to help you to find medical financing.
