Digital Scanning

The Midlands Specialist Orthodontists

Forming an accurate model of the contours
of your teeth and gums is vital to planning
effective orthodontic treatment.

This requires having impressions made, a process that is messy and that for some feels invasive.

Although we still use impressions for some processes (such as the construction of retainers), many patients will be glad to know that modern technology has allowed us to reduce the use of the technique by replacing it with 3D digital scanning.
