Dr. Takanari Miyamoto, Dr. Taera Kim and Dr. Melissa Lang use digital scanning to offer our patients unparalleled precision and comfort during their visits. This cutting-edge tool enables our dedicated periodontists, orthodontist and team to capture three-dimensional, high-resolution images of your dental structures swiftly and with remarkable clarity.

The use of our advanced digital scanner allows for a comprehensive and noninvasive assessment of your oral health. By employing this innovative technology, we can obtain detailed images of your teeth, gums and the surrounding tissues with ease. This capability is crucial not only for accurate diagnosis but also for devising effective, personalized treatment plans tailored to meet your specific needs. The vivid, full-color images produced by the scanner facilitate a clear differentiation between healthy and affected areas, ensuring that any treatment provided is precisely targeted and optimally beneficial.

Moreover, the digital scanner’s efficiency and accuracy in capturing images translate into significant benefits for you. The process involves a small, comfortable wand that is gently moved around the mouth to scan different areas. This method is not only quick, reducing the duration of your appointment, but also exceptionally comfortable, eliminating the need for traditional, often uncomfortable, impression materials. The digital images are processed in real-time, providing immediate and highly accurate representations of your teeth, mouth and supporting oral structures. This immediacy allows for on-the-spot evaluations and adjustments to your treatment plan, if necessary.

Another advantage of digital scanning lies in its application to creating precise digital models of your mouth. These models are instrumental in designing and fabricating custom restorations and appliances that fit flawlessly, enhancing both the functionality and aesthetics of your smile. Whether you are receiving an orthodontic aligner or another restorative or corrective solution, the precision afforded by digital scanning ensures optimal outcomes.

We are committed to leveraging the benefits of digital scanning to enhance your oral health and ensure the best possible results for your treatments.
