Digital impressions are a faster and easier way to take an impression of your teeth and mouth. With digital impressions we no longer need to use the gooey impression material, that takes longer to set and can be very messy.
At Knighton Dental practice in Leicester we are proud to be able to offer state of the art technology to our patients. Both our itero and primescan digital scanners give us the ability to take digital scans and impressions.
What is a Primescan digital impression?
Our Prime scanner is the latest technology in dentistry with digital scanning we are able to offer to our patients. Our prime scan reduces appointments needed for treatment and enables us to create crowns in a day. With digital impressions we no longer need to use gooey impression material as before. Prime scan gives a more accurate impression than ever before which is easier and faster than before.
During the digital impression process, you can breathe or swallow as you normally would. You can even pause during the process if you need to sneeze or just want to ask a question.
