    Blog by Dentists on Bloor

    Digital dental impressions represent cutting-edge technology that allow dentists to create a virtual, computer-generated replica of the hard and soft tissues in the mouth using optical scanning devices. The digital technology captures clear and highly accurate data in mere minutes, without the need for traditional impression materials that some patients find inconvenient and messy. It replaces the need to take messy impressions for a night guard, crowns, invisible orthodontic aligners, or when you need to compare and monitor tooth and gum changes that would otherwise not be easy to do. Digital impressions significantly increase efficiency, productivity, and accuracy and make it possible for dentists to email the virtual impression to the laboratory rather than send a traditional impression or stone model via regular mail.

    Blog by Dentists on Bloor

    The daily stresses of life, especially over the last 2 years, has taken a great toll on our bodies as well as our teeth. Unfortunately, I have seen more of this with many of our patients presenting with damage to their teeth, fillings and crowns that present as chips, cracks, and general wearing down due to teeth grinding and jaw clenching. Even if you don’t think you’re clenching and/or grinding your teeth during the day, it could indeed be happening at night.

    While a dentist’s appointment may not be your favorite appointment, it is one that should be kept and not canceled. Visiting the dentist at least twice a year is vital to help monitor and maintain the condition of your teeth and gums.

Regular examinations will help control and catch conditions before they become that emergency visits we all fear.
