Another cutting-edge technology employed by our specialists at Dr. Aburas Dental Centers in Dubai is the intraoral 3D scanner. This device utilizes a light source to project a direct optical impression onto the targeted area for scanning. The imaging sensors capture the images, which are then processed by scanning software to generate a precise 3D surface model.
Intraoral 3D scanners serve as invaluable tools that enhance the quality of dental care provided to patients. They are used in various dental procedures such as crowns, bridges, implants, veneers, and more.
These handheld scanners are inserted directly into the patient's mouth to examine the inside and scan the teeth. Their remarkable speed surpasses traditional impressions as the scans can be processed immediately, thereby eliminating the need for additional impression stages. Dental impressions are commonly used for diverse dental purposes, including creating mouth guards, retainers, accurate models, whitening trays, crowns, veneers, bridges, dentures, and more.
3D imaging provides these benefits without extending patient visits during an exam.
