How Does 3D Scanning help in Teeth Straightening

Orthodontic treatment results and result simulations have both been improved thanks to ongoing technological advancements in orthodontics. At Flash Aligners, we make use of cutting-edge technology to deliver precise orthodontic care and design well-fitting aligners to suit your dental needs. Our patients receive the greatest care possible and achieve the best possible results thanks to our applications of various cutting-edge technologies.

We take extremely accurate digital impressions of your teeth and jaw using the most recent 3D intraoral scanner technology. Alginate or PVS impressions, which are frequently less precise and more unpleasant than digital impressions, are not necessary when you undergo 3D scanning.

Through a compact, portable, radiation-free device, the 3D scanner digitally records the structure of your teeth and gums. We can build a model of your teeth from the digital impressions the 3D scanner collects to outline your whole treatment strategy.

The 3D scanner generates results digitally, so they are immediate. It takes less time to obtain personalised appliances especially if they are made and transported from an outside laboratory. Thanks to the digital impressions of your teeth and bite created using this technology, the lab will instead get all the data they require on the same day. Apart from this, it has also been observed that younger patients respond much better to 3D scanning solutions as compared to traditional methods. Whether it’s teeth straightening or dental device manufacturing, everything has been simplified to the last step due to 3D scanning.

With the use of digital impressions, we can organise every step of your treatment in advance and provide better results. 

3D Scanning Benefits

Radiation Free

Scans are an integral part of any treatment and when it comes to orthodontic treatment, people understandably might be concerned about any radiation exposure. Fortunately, there is no radiation involved with 3D scanning. While 3D scanning isn’t exactly a replacement for x-rays, it’s still an efficient treatment method to avoid radiation exposure.

Accurate dental models

Putty moulds aren’t the most accurate treatment method and several dentists and orthodontists have expressed this concern. Physical moulds don’t give the most exact representation of a person’s teeth and have a lot of space for inaccuracy.

3D scanning provides an accurate representation of your dental structure. These scans reveal muscles, nerves, infections, and more, making them more precise than a standard x-ray. No other scanning or moulding technique can match this level of detail.

Quicker treatment method

The detailed dental images produced by 3D scanners are created just in a few minutes. People who have extensive dental work done, whether for aesthetic or medical reasons, value the fact that x-rays and mould-making take up a lot of their time which is not the case with 3D scanning. This method also makes the whole process much simpler for both you and your dentist.
