What is the iTero® Scanner?
The iTero® Intraoral Scanner is used to make a digital print of your mouth that can be used to aid orthodontic treatments. We’re sure you can recall a time when a dentist or orthodontist made an impression of your mouth using flavored “goop.” The iTero® Scanner does the same work as the “goop,” but it is digital, faster and more accurate.
The arrival of the iTero® Scanner allows Dr. Omid, Dr. Arash and our entire team to accurately and digitally map the inside of every patient’s mouth with 3D imaging, not only greatly reducing the time to make impressions of a patient’s mouth, but increasing the accuracy of the impression as well. With newfound high precision in digital imaging, we’ve improved the patient experience.
How Does iTero® Scanner Work?
During your appointment, the iTero® Scanner is used to digitally photograph the entire mouth. During this process, the iTero® software pieces the images together creating a digital map. You and Dr. Omid or Dr. Arash will use this digital map to plan your visits and achieve your desired orthodontic results. The introduction of iTero technology eliminates the worry of radiation and uses laser imaging to generate images creating a much safer experience for patients.
What are the Benefits of iTero® Scanner?
The “goop” that is commonly used to make an impression of one’s mouths has never been very popular among patients. Patients have often complained about the messy impression material that leaks into their mouth and tastes funny. However, the iTero® Scanner erases the need for the messy impression material aka “goop,” allowing for a much more comfortable experience. The iTero® Scanner has also greatly improved the experience of patients during Invisalign® treatment.
Overall, setups are 50 percent faster, there are 10 times fewer rejections, and seven times fewer fit issues with this new technology. The iTero® Scanner allows for an all-around smoother experience for both patients and orthodontists.
