Have you ever had to have an impression of your teeth taken at the dentist? If you are like most people, this experience consisted of uncomfortably large impression trays and bad-tasting impression putty. At Knollwood Dental Group, we want to make your dental experience as enjoyable, comfortable, and convenient as possible. To do this, Dr. Knollwood Dental Group is pleased to utilize the 3M™ True Definition Scanner in Mobile, Alabama, to create digital impressions of your teeth. With this impression, our dentist can create 100% customized dental crowns that fit your smile perfectly.

Over the years, the dental field has embraced technology and its advances as a way to make their treatments more patient-friendly. The 3M True Definition Scanner is no exception. This diagnostic and treatment tool allows our dentist to provide you and your family with faster, more efficient dental care by creating 3D images of your oral cavity.
Whenever a patient requires a dental restoration, such as a crown, bridge, or dentures, it is important to make in impression of your teeth to ensure that your restoration resembles your natural teeth as much as possible. However, without the help of technology, these impressions are often uncomfortable and involved ill-fitted impression trays and yucky impression putty that leaves a crusty layer wherever it drips out of your mouth. With the 3M True Definition Scanner, getting a dental impression was never easier.
To get your digital impression, our dentist will simply run the 3M True Definition Scanner wand, a small, pen-like tool, along each of your dental arches. As the wand moves along your teeth, a digital, 3D image of your mouth appears on the 3M True Definition Scanner monitor. Once our dentist has a complete digital impression, we can use it more efficiently plan your treatment and create restorations that are more accurate to your natural teeth than any other digital impression system.
We welcome you to learn more about the 3M True Definition Scanner and how we use it to make your dental crowns more comfortable, durable, and precise than ever before. Please feel free to call or visit our office! We are always happy to help!
