Patient expectation of convenience has reached an all-time high due to the global pandemic’s unprecedented circumstances. While healthcare providers, including dentists, were forced to make drastic changes due to intensified safety procedures over the past three years, patients took note of the increased alternative options for receiving the care they need. In a recent study, 80% of patients reported that they prefer providers that offer more convenience. As such, many practices have invested in new technologies that can provide further conveniences, such as intraoral scanners.
Intraoral scanners are specifically designed to remove the inconveniences related to taking traditional impressions, such as their overall tendency to be messy, costly, and time-consuming. While taking traditional impressions often requires that patients inconveniently spend an inordinate amount of time stuck in the dental chair where they may be exposed to additional discomforts such as unpleasant smells and the application of dental materials in their mouths. Some intraoral scanners, such as VivaScan by Ivoclar also provide a pleasant ergonomic design making the patient experience much more comfortable and pleasant.
Intraoral scanners provide dentists the ability to conveniently take and retake highly efficient 3D images of the patient’s teeth, gums, and mouth. Dentists can also rescan areas of imperfection, and review impressions within seconds on their computer screen, allowing for a more accurate impression. Intraoral scanners such as VivaScan are also integrated with state-of-the-art technology which provides dentists with time-saving conveniences such as the ability to instantly transfer digital impressions to specialists and laboratories, delivering exceptional practice workflow efficiencies.
