Digital Impressions For Dentistry And Orthodontics

Leaving Traditional Impressions Behind

In the past, getting dental impressions taken was nobody’s favorite part of a dental or orthodontic appointment. The putty that molds around the teeth didn’t taste great, and it could be hard not to gag when it oozed towards the back of the throat. Thanks to modern technology, Dr. Holsteen can now use digital optical impressions to get all the information he needs without having to rely on putty.

How Do Digital Impressions Work?

Digital impressions use cutting-edge laser and scanning technology to create a virtual 3D replica of the inside of the patient’s mouth. The entire process only takes minutes, and the digital impressions eliminate some of the errors that come up with traditional impressions. A traditional impression is an imperfect “negative” image of the teeth, whereas a digital impression is an accurate “positive” image of the teeth that enables Dr. Holsteen to zoom in for more careful evaluation.

I've been seeing Dr. Holsteen since 1992! The staff is wonderful! They are friendly and they talk to you! They are not robots! (Not to mention they play my favorite oldies station on Pandora when I go in!) I love these professionals because they make you feel at home!
