Pittman Digital DenturesTraditional dentures have served their purpose for many years, but dental technology is constantly evolving. Digital dentures are a prime example, offering a cutting-edge approach to denture creation that benefits both dentists and patients.

Crafting Comfort: A Boon for Patients

Scanning for digital-denturesFor patients, digital dentures offer a significant upgrade in comfort and aesthetics. The process begins with a digital scan of your mouth, eliminating the need for messy and uncomfortable traditional impressions. This scan creates a highly accurate 3D model, allowing for a denture that is custom-designed to fit your unique anatomy. This precise fit reduces slipping and irritation, leading to a more enjoyable denture experience.

Furthermore, digital design software allows for superior aesthetics. Pittman Dental Laboratory can use the 3D model to tailor the size, shape, and color of the teeth to best complement the smile. Additionally, the digital workflow allows for faster turnaround times, minimizing the time spent without teeth.

Efficiency Enhances the Experience: A Win for Dentists

Maximizing Chair TimeDigital dentures streamline the denture creation process for dentists, improving efficiency and patient satisfaction. Digital scans eliminate the need for physical impressions, which can be prone to errors and require multiple appointments for adjustments. This translates to fewer return visits for patients and allows dentists to focus on other aspects of care.

The digital workflow also simplifies the denture design and fabrication process. Pittman's software allows for meticulous adjustments and modifications, ensuring a precise fit. Additionally, the ability to store digital files allows for easy retrievals and adjustments for future repairs or relines.

A Brighter Future for Dentures

Digital dentures represent a significant advancement in denture technology. By offering superior comfort, aesthetics, and efficiency, they benefit both dentists and patients.
