Impressions that make you GAG!
There are some things from your childhood you remember quite well. Like the quote when you were so cool and you wanted to show your disgust for something you may have said “Ugh, GAG me with a spoon!”. Often, those memories come flooding back when your child is about to have the same experience you once did. You remember… you went to your Orthodontist, they grabbed the puke bucket “just incase” and got ready to take your impressions. It probably scared you to death; even if you didn’t end up taking up residence over the bucket to loose your lunch, you were desperately trying not to gag. Does that bring back memories that want to make you want to… well, gag? Gag no more, there’s good news!
You don’t have to gag at the thought and neither do your children! At Backus Orthodontics, we’re spoiling our patients so they will never know what it is like to have to live such a hard life like their parents did in the “old days”. We use a digital scanner that makes life much easier for everyone. For the patient, benefits include improved case presentation, a better orthodontic experience with more comfort and less anxiety, reduced chair time, as well as potentially reduced treatment time. For the Orthodontist, benefits include improved diagnosis and treatment planning, improved appliance accuracy. With technology advancing, we stay up to date with the latest to spoil you with the best care! Read more about intraoral scanner technology.
Want them to get a taste of ancient times?
Well, on some occasions, we still do impressions with the goop and gag. Currently, these impressions are necessary for making retainers. But hurry, this offer won’t last long! Before you know it, they’ll be all grown up and telling their kids all the horror stories of their childhood and how the technology was terrible when they were kids in the “old days”.
