We strive to stay right on the cutting edge of orthodontic technology. Dr. Stevens and the Braces Omaha team use the latest radiation-free 3D imaging technology to create an accurate digital 3D impression of your teeth and jaws. This technology ensures the most accurate and efficient treatment plans and the best fit for your custom appliances.
Benefits of 3D Scanning & Digital Impressions
3D imaging technology provides much more information about your facial anatomy and condition than traditional X-rays. The images created by our 3D scanner reveal details that allow us to anticipate challenges and avoid any surprises.
Benefits of 3D scanning include
- Improved orthodontic treatment planning
- Lower risk of surprises during treatment
- Complete, detailed view of your dental and facial anatomy
- Less radiation exposure compared to X-rays
- Efficient, well-planned treatment
3D scans/digital impressions are incredibly accurate — much more so than the traditional type of impressions (PVS impressions). Digital impressions ensure that you/your child receive well-fitting appliances such as a palatal expander or a retainer, as well as an accurate representation of your mouth and jaws for other orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign.
The results of 3D scans are instant, which means information from our practice can be captured and sent digitally to the laboratory on the same day — so you can get started quickly on your smile with your new custom appliances.
