The iTero intraoral scanner is a revolutionary piece of dental equipment allowing us to take advantage of enhanced digital scanning.
What Are iTero Intraoral Scanners?
Intraoral scanners from iTero scan the mouths of patients, capturing images to create three-dimensional dental images in minutes. The scans they produce are also more detailed than the traditional two-dimensional images they replace.
Intraoral digital scans help dental professionals create accurate physical dental models for restorative work, including crowns, veneers, and implants. They also help orthodontists diagnose orthodontic problems and develop the best treatment plans.
What iTero Intraoral Scanners Do
iTero scanners improve the patient experience because patients can know what to expect and feel more confident in their diagnosis and treatment plan.
Thankfully, old-school impressions are no longer the only option. The iTero scanner allows us to take a digital impression—a highly accurate, digital 3D image of the individual characteristics of your tooth surfaces and gum tissue. The iTero scanner is all about keeping you comfortable while delivering precise imagery, without the putty-filled impression tray that makes you gag!
Not only is it more comfortable, but taking a digital scan for your new crown, bridge, or Invisalign aligners is quick, which allows you to spend less time at the dentist’s office and more time enjoying your new smile!
