Dental technology is continually evolving, providing us with new tools, technologies, and techniques to improve your quality of care. At Fusion Dental Specialists, our goal is to help you maintain optimal oral health. One of the ways that we can achieve this goal is by remaining up to date on the latest technology and techniques. This includes the use of digital impressions.
Impressions without Putty
Traditionally, impressions were taken using impression putty. This method of taking impressions could be uncomfortable as well as messy. Additionally, they were not always accurate, resulting in restorations that needed several adjustments as well as the need for more impressions. This could then mean that you were stuck waiting even longer for your restorations to be completed.
