Long gone are the days of biting into an unpleasant paste to take impressions of a patient’s teeth. At Planet Dental, we utilize digital impressions in Laredo Texas. Dr. Labbe, Dr. Staat, and associates can take impressions quickly and more accurately with digital impressions, so contact our dentists today! We can be reached at 956-242-4245.

Digital impressions are a modern, effective and comfortable way to make highly accurate impressions of your mouth. If you have ever had to have a traditional impression or mold taken when you have visited the dentist in the past, you know just how unpleasant and uncomfortable they are. Fortunately, we use digital impressions to eliminate the need for messy, goopy impressions. While this technology can make the experience more comfortable for any patient, it is especially beneficial for patients with a sensitive gag reflex. The digital impression system is less invasive than traditional impressions and molds, and it produces extremely accurate impressions.

The impressive benefits of digital impression technology include:

  • Digital impressions can be used for creating dental restorations, such as crowns, as well as clear aligners like Invisalign®.
  • No more messy “goop”
  • The scanner can be quickly taken out of your mouth if you ever feel uncomfortable, and we can easily begin and end the scanning process as needed.
  • Digital impressions require much less time than traditional impressions, helping to make your appointment quick and pleasant.
