What Are Digital Impressions?
Digital impressions are a cutting-edge way to get a model of your mouth without the goop, gagging, and discomfort of the standard mold. Using this technology, dentist Dr. Asher Henegar can take clean, precise, and easy impressions of each patient's mouth. When the digital impression is scanned into the computer, our Colorado Springs, CO team can access your teeth records and better prepare for restorations, crowns, veneers, bridges, and more. Digital impressions also eliminate additional trays, equipment, supplies, and more for a cleaner environment.
"While on vacation my husband developed quite the toothache. Friday afternoon and Dr. Henegar fit us in! Very impressed with the time he took and his diagnosis! Alex was great as well! Would recommend Dr. Henegar for sure!"- N.H. / Google / Aug 14, 2021
"A wonderful place to go for a dental work! The office staff is friendly and helpful. Dr Henegar and his assistant were very gentle and caring. They made sure I was comfortable during my visit! I will return!"- P.N. / Google / Sep 28, 2021
"I haven't been to the dentist in over five years. It's a lot easier said then done but when you don't have insurance or have the finances it gets pushed back over the years. I would highly recommend Dr. Henegar. The office was clean and modern. The staff all had smiles and were very friendly upon entering the office. I was greeted with a hand shake by the doctor himself. We took x-rays of my teeth and came up with a plan. Dr. Henegar was very friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. It felt good to go to the dentist and not be questioned as to why I haven't been to a dentist in so long.We came up with a step by step plan for future visits and he even recommended ortho to help straightrn my bottom teeth in the future. I couldn't be happier with the affordablility but also with the friendly staff. It is nice to be known and addressed by your name rather then a patient room number. No judgments here."- E.M. / Google / Sep 15, 2021
"Cannot recommend Dr. Henegar enough! I just recently started coming here, and the environment is so relaxing. The staff are extremely attentive and friendly. I had to have several fillings done and Dr. Henegar even touched up an old filling that I had as a courtesy. He and his staff are so friendly and caring and make you feel like more than just a dollar walking in the door. As long as I live in the Springs, I’ll be coming back to him!"- M.W. / Google / Sep 15, 2021
"Very polite and professional. They explained the expenses and options very well for me."- N.M. / Google / Sep 14, 2021
What to Expect From Digital Impressions
We will use an intraoral, handheld device to capture the structure of your teeth, as well as images of your gums and jaw in a matter of minutes. The wand will be gently moved along the surface area of your teeth while the side monitor will display the images captured. This will help Dr. Henegar point out specific areas of concern for you to see. The scanning process is convenient in that it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary, and the images can be manipulated and enlarged so mistakes in the impressions can be identified. This creates more successful imaging and allows our team to create accurate crowns, bridges, implants, and more.
Some common benefits of digital impressions include:
- Elimination of uncomfortable, "putty-like" impression materials that cause some patients to initiate their gag reflex
- Less time needed to spend in the dental chair
- Increase in comfort and less anxiety for patients needing impressions for treatment
- An environmentally friendly way to dispose of plastic trays and impression materials with no need for landfill space
