CEREC Primescan Q & A

Why is imaging in dentistry important?

When it comes to protecting your dental health, the team at Don E. Larson, DMD, needs to see what’s going inside your teeth and your jawbone. This ability allows them to spot the early signs of tooth decay, as an example, allowing your dentist to act quickly to prevent further damage.

And when it comes to restorative dentistry and orthodontics, advanced imaging provides your dentist with a clear picture of your teeth and bone so that they can formulate the best plan to restore your dental health. 

What is Primescan?

Traditional imaging for dentists typically involves the X-ray machine, which has its limitations. Primescan is a digital intraoral scanner that provides the team at Don E. Larson, DMD, with a more complete and accurate picture of the internal structures in your mouth, enabling them to design the perfect plan for your dental restoration needs.

To gain this imaging, your team at Don E. Larson, DMD, uses a nimble wand that not only allows your dentist to perform the scan while you’re in the chair, but allows the hardware to access areas that were previously unreachable with traditional X-ray technology.

How does Primescan work with CEREC?

One of the biggest advantages of the Primescan technology is that it works with other platforms for a seamless restoration. At Don E. Larson, DMD, the team uses Primescan with their CEREC technology, which includes computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacture of your dental restoration.

As an example, explore how the process for getting a crown is now easier than ever. First, using Primescan, your dental expert creates an accurate 3D image of the tooth that needs a crown. Once the image is created, Primescan connects with the CEREC software to design your crown and — here’s the really great part — the CEREC milling unit creates your crown on-site.

This same principle applies to orthodontics. Using Primescan to create a baseline, the team at Don E. Larson, DMD, is able to formulate a treatment plan that straightens your teeth as quickly as possible. And Primescan allows the team to follow your progress and make any necessary adjustments along the way.
