You Never Have to do an Impression Again
A patient at an orthodontist offices has a clay mold (impression) put around their teeth. The orthodontist uses that to fit a retainer or an Invisalign aligner to that particular patient’s teeth. In turn, the patient has to be careful about how they breathe and swallow. They need to rinse their mouth after to eliminate the aftertaste.
Anyone who’s had this procedure done knows about the disgusting aftertaste of the mold once it is taken out. But, what if there was a better way to complete this process?
Thanks to technology, there is a better way. At Gorton & Schmohl Orthodontics, we use a 3D-scanner and 3D-printer for teeth that need orthodontic treatment, eliminating the need for an impression.
