At Glenpool Braces, Dr. Georgy understands what a positive difference modern technology can make when straightening smiles. Not only can our team speed up the treatment process without sacrificing the quality patients deserve, but we can also help them feel much more at ease every step of the way. That’s why our team has chosen to utilize several state-of-the-art tools and techniques here in Glenpool, OK, including Planmeca Emerald™ Intraoral Scanning. If you’d like to learn more or visit us in person for a dedicated orthodontic consultation, don’t hesitate to call today.
This advanced scanner is a lightweight device that’s handheld and comfortably glides over the patient’s teeth with minimal contact. As a result, a comprehensive, three-dimensional digital model of the teeth is created in full color that we then use to create impressions for various orthodontic appliances.
Why is this good news? Because older patients surely remember the days of having to sit still while the orthodontist filled their mouth with uncomfortable impression materials. Many people even gagged on this “goop,” and time-consuming retakes were often necessary to boot because of inaccuracies. With this technology at hand, Dr. Georgy can help make the treatment process more successful from beginning to end for her valued patients of all ages.
Once the digital scan is complete and confirmed, the patient’s impressions will be forwarded to a trusted laboratory for the creation of the necessary orthodontic appliance. After a few weeks, Dr. Georgy will invite you back in for a follow-up appointment so that she can assess the fit of the appliance and confirm that no further adjustments need to be made for comfort and ease of use. Thanks to the Emerald Intraoral Scanning, fewer changes should need to be made than ever before!
