Itero Intraoral Scanner
The iTero Intraoral Scanner is a touch-enabled device that provides a more precise view of your oral cavity, including the mouth, gums, teeth, and all other oral structures. The primary advantage of using this tool is its facilitation of digital impressions for Invisalign and other orthodontic procedures, without causing any irritation or pain.
The Advantages of iTero scanning at dental office
There are numerous benefits to utilizing the iTero Scanner. Firstly, it is faster, cleaner, and significantly more accurate compared to traditional impressions. As a result, patients spend less time in the chair and receive a more precise diagnosis.
Unlike conventional impressions that often require multiple attempts to achieve the desired outcome, iTero eliminates the need for such approaches, resulting in a smoother experience for patients and shorter office visits.
The scanning process can be paused and resumed as many times as necessary to ensure the patient’s comfort.
Since the impressions are entirely digital, the likelihood of overlooking potential issues is reduced. Orthodontists can address possible concerns early in the treatment plan.
The 3D iTero scanning allows for a preview of treatment outcomes, even before undergoing the actual procedure.
The iTero Scanner leaves no room for errors, enabling dentists to create natural-looking bridges, veneers, crowns, and other restorations. Additionally, it minimizes the discomfort associated with holding a tray in place for extended periods.
Same Day Crowns – Technology
With the Glidewell Fastmill.io digital dentistry system, we can now provide our patients with the convenience of same-day dental restorations. In the past, the process involved capturing intraoral scans, designing the restoration, and sending the information to a dental lab for crown fabrication. This meant wearing a temporary dental crown until the permanent one was ready, requiring a second visit for placement. However, with this in-office milling unit, we can eliminate the need for a temporary crown and the second appointment. Instead, we take diagnostic images, design the perfect smile, mill the dental crown on-site, and complete the restoration in just one visit to our dental office.
