At Reich Dental Center we use cutting-edge dental technology to provide you with safe, fast, and effective results!
An intraoral camera is a handheld appliance that is shaped like a wand. The tiny camera at the tip of the appliance takes hundreds of pictures per second to capture an in-depth and accurate image of your mouth. This image is sometimes used to create a digital impression of your teeth and gums. A digital impression is particularly useful for same-day dental crowns.
In the past, most dental professionals had to use the traditional x-ray systems, which require film development. These days, we use digital x-rays due to their many benefits. A digital x-ray is safer and much quicker than its film predecessor. If the image comes out blurry, we can instantly retake a new one. Digital x-rays are a crucial diagnostic tool that helps us gain a better understanding of the inner workings of your mouth, more specifically the teeth, roots, and alveolar bone.
Our doctors understand how valuable your time is, which is why we offer digital impressions. Digital impressions(or 3-D intraoral scanning) capture an extremely accurate replica of the mouth, using the latest technology. Once the digital impression is made, we can send it directly to the lab to fabricate your crown or bridge. In some cases, we can prepare your tooth, take an impression, and fabricate your restoration, all within a single appointment.
In the case where same day crowns are possible, the data we capture with our intraoral wand via digital impressions is wirelessly transferred to our computer system. We then use CAD/CAM software to design your crown in office. Next, this information is sent to our milling unit, which transforms a single block of porcelain into your aesthetically-pleasing restoration.
