For many patients, orthodontic treatment takes time. A dental specialist must analyze a patient’s condition, and when a patient requires an orthodontic appliance, the dentist must take a mold of their teeth before sending it off to a laboratory.
However, some of the latest innovations in dental technology, like the iTero Intraoral Scanner, enable specialists to provide excellence in expedited results for dental crowns, braces, and other orthodontic devices.
Dr. Andres de Cardenas and his team proudly provide iTero as a state-of-the-art technology that allows our technicians to take accurate three-dimensional images of a patient’s mouth. By scanning with iTero, Dr. de Cardenas can eliminate the need for impressions, applicable to a wide variety of dental procedures.
What is the iTero Scanner?
Traditionally, dentists analyzed a patient’s mouth with potentially inaccurate impressions or trays that invited a small potential for imprecision. Contrarily, a modern, digital dental imaging device like the iTero Scanner expedites and improves previous oral scanning methods.
The iTero system offers experts like Dr. Andres de Cardenas, and his patients total scanning designed specially for oral analysis. This means fewer takes and fewer appointment sessions at a dental clinic, offering efficiency with various scans that technicians can compare before constructing braces, clear aligners, and crowns.
How Does iTero Work?
iTero scanning digitally captures teeth and gum structure by utilizing the latest optical technology. This device is a compact, handheld wand that Dr. de Cardenas can start or stop as many times as necessary.
Dental specialists scan a patient’s mouth with a radiation-free laser in as little as two to three minutes to render a digitally perfect, three-dimensional impression of the patient’s teeth, in addition to their soft tissue structure.
iTero remains an ideal impression method to obtain three-dimensional oral modeling and the optimal approach for any orthodontic treatment, including dental crowns, Invisalign, and more!
