If you have ever had dental impressions made with thick, gag-inducing powder and putty, then you probably recall the experience as messy and unpleasant. For years this was the dental community’s only option and it delivered functional models. iTero® digital scanning has replaced this unpleasant experience with a comfortable, fast scan. This radiation-free, laser technology captures every nuance of a patient’s oral health, making it easier and more efficient to create impressions for oral appliances, such as custom mouth guards and Invisalign® aligner trays.
In our world where all the new movies come out in 3-D and you can go to YouTube to watch any medical procedure in great detail, iTero digital scanning delivers exact, instant, comfortable dental impressions. This technology gives patients the ability to see their teeth instantly in 3-D, delivering transparent communication throughout the consultation and treatment process.
