Dr. Cobb is one of a handful of skilled dentists in the country using the Lava™ Chair-side Oral Scanner (COS), the latest technology in digital impressions. Traditional methods require patients to place uncomfortable trays in their mouth while the impression putty sets. Lava™ Chairside Oral Scanner (COS) allows patients to sit comfortably while getting their teeth and gums examined. Lava COS uses 3D video to capture live images of your teeth and gums, creating a digital impression without any added steps. Using the Lava COS is effective when creating dental impressions for patients who need dental crowns, dental bridges, and veneers.
About the size of an electric toothbrush, the Lava™ COS is a wand designed to glide comfortably over your teeth while taking continuous 3-D video images which can be reviewed instantly. With the Lava™ COS, Dr. Cobb can make precise, digital impressions of your teeth allowing for a quicker, more comfortable and interactive process for restoring your smile.
