Digital Scanning

The gateway to digital dentistry

When it comes to setting the tone for patient-first restorative dentistry, digital scanning is your best way forward. Not only is it a faster, easier process with more accurate results, it’s also an investment in patient experience – drastically reducing intraoral discomfort and helping the patient better understand their treatment plan.

The all-digital workflow of CAD/CAM dentistry starts by generating a digital impression of a patient’s mouth. From there, you can use in-house or off-site dental labs to complete a variety of procedures. Full-featured digital scanners from Patterson allow you to quickly take a digital impression – wherever you go next, you’ll hold the keys.
