True Definition Scanner


As your trusted provider of Bethesda and Laurel orthodontics, including braces and Invisalign, it’s our goal at Heller Orthodontics to give each of our patients smiles that they’ll be proud to show off. To help us create these beautiful and healthy smiles for our patients, we strive to equip our office with the most state-of-the-art technology. One of these technological advances that our office proudly utilizes is the True Definition Scanner, which we’ll be glad to tell you about.

What Is the True Definition Scanner?

Our True Definition Scanner by 3M is a digital impression system that replaces the uncomfortable, messy, and sometime inaccurate traditional impressions. By using the narrow, lightweight, and ergonomically balanced True Definition Scanner wand, we can take 3-D digital images of your teeth, bite pattern, and facial anatomy. The True Definition wand has the smallest profile on the market, making it easier to handle for our staff and much more comfortable for our patients.

Additionally, the True Definition Scanner has 3-D in-motion technology that displays the digital scan on a monitor in real time as the scan takes place. This lets a doctor have the most accurate visibility and control. These digital impressions can then be securely transmitted to laboratories and it will integrate with many major manufacturers. This technology will truly provide the most convenience when it comes to Laurel and Bethesda orthodontics.

The Benefits of the True Definition Scanner

When you come visit your Laurel and Bethesda orthodontist, you’ll be privy to many of the benefits that the True Definition Scanner offers. These include, but aren’t limited to, the following:

  • Accuracy – The True Definition Scanner will capture the exact contours of your teeth.
  • Comfort – With the help of the sleekest wand you’ll find on the market, taking digital images with True Definition is much less invasive. No messy putty is needed, which allows patients to feel more comfortable without any worries that they’ll gag on the putty.
  • Efficiency – It’ll take less time to complete the digital scan.
  • Innovation – It uses the most advanced 3-D in-motion video technology and also uses the smallest wand in the industry today.
  • Visualization – The real-time scan will provide both the doctor and the patient with an accurate image of what the patient’s oral anatomy looks like.
