Digital Dentistry at Rolling Oaks Dental in San Antonio

Digital dentistry

Rolling Oaks Dental is Now Offering Digital Dentistry!

Do you find yourself avoiding the dentist? Many of us do, and one of the reasons is the need for dental impressions. If you have ever had to have an impression made, then you know what it’s like. The gooey concoction placed on a mold that you have to bite down on for 3-5 minutes can seem like an eternity because of the unpleasant feel, taste, and for many of us, the unfortunate gag reflex. The entire process can be messy and off-putting. 

The mold and gooey substance have been used in the past to create a replica of the interior of the mouth, teeth, and gum lines, to include all of the natural bumps and grooves. The molds had to be sent out to be fabricated into the solid substance that your dentist used to create a variety of restorative and cosmetic applications such as crowns, bridges, veneers, implants, All on 4 dental implants, and dentures. We are pleased to announce that all of that is becoming a thing of the past!

Digital Imaging Makes Everything Easier and More Precise

Rolling Oaks Dental, in their ongoing commitment to quality and patient comfort, is introducing Digital Dentistry as an alternative to traditional mold imaging, by utilizing the state-of-the-art Itero® scanning wand! No more goopy impressions! Originally used to “map” the teeth and mouth for Invisalign braces, this small wand is now being used for other dental applications as well.

The scanner provides real time results that you can see on the monitor. This not only reduces errors, but also provides an instantaneous 3-D replica of your teeth once the scan has been completed! 

Here’s a short video to show how it works:
