A intra-oral scan is a diagnostic imaging procedure that uses x-rays to produce images of the teeth and jaw. This type of scan can detect cavities, abscesses, and other problems in the teeth and gums. The intra-oral scan is an important tool for dental care and can help identify problems early so they can be treated promptly.

What is the procedure for an intraoral scan?
An intraoral scan is a digital dental impression that uses 3D scanning technology to create a detailed model of your teeth and mouth. The scan is performed using a small handheld scanner that is passed over your teeth and gums. As the scanner moves, it captures thousands of photos that are used to create a detailed 3D model of your mouth. Your dentist or orthodontist can then use this model to plan and provide treatment.
Benefits of intraoral scan
Why choose an intraoral scan?
Intraoral scans are different in that they are highly advanced and render all oral tissue accurately in 3D. This allows the entire dental arch to be shown in color, making it easier to identify any problems. The intraoral scan is also less invasive than traditional methods, such as x-rays, and does not require the use of radiation.

The intraoral scan will be recommended by your dentist if visualized images of your dental issues are needed. With intraoral scanning, we can take accurate digital impressions of your teeth and gums, which allows us to create a 3D model of your mouth.
