Dental impressions are the most essential tool in any oral health specialists’ repository, and being able to consistently attain accurate imprints necessitates not only possessing the most advanced technology available but also the ability to expertly operate the device. The 3M™ True Definition Scanner efficiently produces detailed digital impressions that allow dental professionals the opportunity to achieve patient goals with greater success in a shorter period of time. The key to obtaining consistent, high-quality results is the same as with many other techniques: user proficiency. I had the honor of presenting a live webinar that provided step-by-step instruction on how to achieve dependably exacting impressions and further detailed how to employ this data, specifically in the process of fabricating clear aligners.
When treating dental issues related to tooth alignment, such as crowding, crossbites, overbites, underbites, and spacing, clear aligners are generally as effective as the quality of the impressions. The 3M™ Digital Scanner is designed to offer orthodontic specialists a simple method to expedite the imprinting process while providing enhanced precision and, as a natural consequence, an improved patient experience. My online training course reveals the versatility of digital impression technology, which I believe will prove an indispensable part of the modern dental practice.
