Marietta Family Dentist Uses Digital Scanner for Impressions

iTero digital scanner Marietta, GA.Earlier this year, I invested in an Itero Digital Scanner. The scanner is used to make 3D digital impressions of teeth and takes the place of the gooey impressions that we used to use. This is the latest state-of-the-art technology and I’ve invested in the scanner to provide a more comfortable experience for our patients, while also receiving a much more accurate impression of our patient’s teeth.

The scanner can be used to capture digital impressions for crowns, bridges, implants and even Invisalign! The scans are even more accurate than traditional impressions and they also allow us to see the prepared teeth magnified on the screen up to 2000 times the actual size! Scanning is easy and painless. We use a light wand and simply make pictures of different parts of your mouth. It’s so easy!

This alliTero scanned digital impression.ows us to be hyper-critical of the margins of our prepared teeth and make any minor modifications before we send it to the lab. This means better crown margins which equates to a longer lasting crown for you. The precision of the scan also means the bite record is much more accurate, so that means a shorter appointment with less adjusting when we cement the crown onto your teeth.

Digital impression for Invisalign.For my Invisalign patients, we scan the entire upper and lower teeth and get a bite record very quickly. Then I send the scan to Invisalign in Costa Rica over the internet. In fact, the scan is in Costa Rica before the patient even leaves our office. It’s that fast! There is no lag time converting an old-fashioned impression into the digital format that Invisalign uses.

This saves over three weeks of time for my patients. And because I’m one of the top Invisalign providers in the Southeast, I typically have a completed treatment plan from Invisalign, based on my specifications, in about 1 day. For Invisalign Providers who don’t use this advanced technology or this seniority, the time frame is up to four weeks!

We are the only dental practice in Cobb County that uses this advanced technology for Invisalign and only one of only a handful of dentists in the entire state of Georgia! I invested in the scanner to give our patients the best care possible. And as Cobb County’s #1 Invisalign Provider, I take that responsibility very seriously.

If you are thinking about having Invisalign treatment for yourself or a friend or loved one, please call us for a free, no obligation consultation. We’ll even scan you that day at no charge and then you can decide if you’d like to move forward with Invisalign! And know that the next time you need a crown in our office, the odds are, you’ll have an easy scan instead of an gooey impression!

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
