Lythos™ Digital Impression System
Our office proudly offers the Lythos Digital Impression System.
This system is uses 3D imaging to help get a complete view of your teeth and mouth for diagnostic, cosmetic and restorative procedures. Using this technology reduces the need for performing traditional poly-vinyl siloxane (PVS) and alignment impressions.
Lythos is able to capture all the necessary structural and diagnostic information in less than 10 minutes. This means less time in the chair and no more uncomfortable impression procedures that make you gag. Using a smaller wand tip allows the ability to capture data in a wet environment, making the procedure a lot more comfortable than traditional diagnostic treatments. Lythos technology also captures data in real-time to produce high-definition quality angles of every surface of the scanned tooth.
Lythos delivers dual-arch capture in less than ten minutes, meaning you’ll spend less time in the chair and won’t have to deal with traditional goopy impressions that makes you gag. A smaller wand tip gives us the ability to capture data in a wet environment (which means no messy powders or coating are involved), resulting in higher patient comfort and less chair time. Also, in the past, it was point-and-click technology that limited us to a single image capture, whereas with Lythos’ technology, which captures data in real time, we can acquire high-definition quality at all angles of the scanned tooth surface.
With Lythos, we can:
- Scan: The small, wand scanning device easily fits into the smallest parts of your mouth with very little discomfort.
- Process: We can re-scan any area during the process, which means we can stop and start as many times as needed to ensure your comfort.
- Review: the scan can be reviewed at any point. We also utilize a touch screen to rotate the image, making it easy to view every angle.
Lythos enables us to capture more information in a shorter amount of time than traditional diagnostics. This means less time in the chair and more time showing off your smile! Next time you are in our office feel free to ask a team member about the Lythos Digital Impression System and its benefits.
