Digital Impressions – The 5 Things You Need to Know


While everything it seems is going digital, orthodontics is no different and there’s something really exciting that we’d like to share with you.

We are pleased to announce that we are that first practice on the Gold Coast to have the new Lythos Digital Impression System.

Lythos is a high tech video recorder which allows us to take a ‘scan’ of your teeth and upload this data to create your customised braces. There is no radiation and it eliminates the need for  traditional PVS/putty impressions, and their unwanted side effects.

Now while you may not get overly excited about this piece of info, it does spell really good news for you.


Let us tell you what that means – minus the industry jargon.

It simply means you’ll get a better treatment and a better result because it replaces the uncomfortable, unpleasant, messy and sometimes inaccurate traditional putty impressions that don’t taste the best.

And anyone who has had that sticky putty in their mouth knows just how much it can make you gag, and that’s no joke.

There are no bulky trays either.

Some benefits of digital impressions over traditional putty impressions include:

    • Precise: They depict the exact outlines of your teeth and are more accurate than putty
    • Efficient: You will spend less time in the treatment chair because it is a faster process.
    • Comfort: No bulky, annoying impression trays are required, and the whole digital process is more comfortable.
    • Taste: Putty impressions have a terrible chemical taste –which is now eliminated with the digital system
    • Revolutionary: Only the most advanced 3-D video technologies are used so you received the highest level of treatment
