THE INTRAORAL DIGITAL SCANNER
Introducing faster, easier, and more accurate scanning!
Winyah Dental Group has embraced the highly sought-after intraoral scanner ("IOS") because the technology is drastically improved from the previous methodology and enables high precision accurate digital impressions ensuring a perfect fit for any repair or appliance.
Time saver - The intraoral scanner prevents the patient from sitting in the dental chair for hours to just get treatment.
Safe - The patient being treated using the IOS is not exposed to harmful radiation.
Accurate - Using the IOS enables us to capture the exact shape and contours of your teeth, thus enabling us to give appropriate and accurate treatment.
Comfort - Unlike the old molding technique, which was quite messy, forcing patients to sit for about fifteen minutes with a large rubber-like material in the mouth. It often produced a gagging effect for patients leading to great discomfort. Our new IOS technique has proved to be quite comfortable as the patient's teeth are being scanned in a matter of very few minutes of the patient's time.
Cone beam cbct system
Cone-beam computed tomography systems (CBCT) used at Winyah Dental Group rotate around the patient, capturing data using a cone-shaped X-ray beam. We then use this data to reconstruct a three-dimensional (3D) image of the teeth, mouth, jaw, and neck.
We are then able to use the 3D images for various clinical applications, including:
Dental implant planning
Visualization of abnormal teeth
Evaluation of the jaws and face
Cleft palate assessment
Diagnosis of dental caries (cavities)
Endodontic (root canal) diagnosis
Diagnosis of dental trauma.
