Imagine Your Smile of Woodbury (651-227-2427) has launched Digital Smile Design, an imaging service that uses intraoral and facial scanners to create an integrated virtual model of a patient's face and dental structure.
Dr. Mark W. Wilhelm and the team at 'Imagine Your Smile' announced that Digital Smile Design integrates intraoral and facial scans into a software program that produces a virtual face, which permits accurate planning of whole-mouth denture or implant treatments and how they will appear in the patient’s face. This integration is then used to create a 3D-printed prosthesis or set of teeth supported with full-mouth implants. The teeth can be tried in and everything such as the appearance and bite are verified before the final placement.
Digital Smile Design intends to improve the quality of implant placement and customization by showing patients the results before they commit to the placement of an implant. According to the American College of Prosthodontists, about 120 million people in the US are missing at least one tooth. Of these, about 15% of patients choose dentures, while only 6% prefer implants.
Digital Smile Design can help patients make an informed choice by providing accurate images of dentures and implants on virtual faces. It also reduces the number of appointments by removing the need for multiple trials and fittings.
The scans can also facilitate quick modifications to the fit and shade of crowns, dentures, and implants before they are produced, thus reducing the wait time for prosthetic corrections or recreations.

"I can't say enough about my great experience with the entire staff," remarked patient Derrick B. "I had previous implants and dentures started by someone else and was very dissatisfied with the results so far. Dr. Mark immediately saw what the problems were before I even explained what I felt was wrong. Over the next several months, he worked with me to find the perfect placement and look. I am completely satisfied and grateful for his time and expertise."
