iTero® Digital Impressions

In traditional dentistry, taking impressions of patients’ teeth used to be a time-consuming and uncomfortable process. However, with the advent of advanced dental technology, such as the iTero® digital scanning system, dental impressions have been revolutionized. This cutting-edge technology offers numerous benefits, from improved accuracy to enhanced patient experience.

  • Accurate and Detailed Scanning: The iTero digital scanning system utilizes a high-resolution camera to capture precise images of the patient’s teeth and oral structures. It creates a digital, 3D model that allows for accurate and detailed analysis. This level of precision ensures that restorations, such as dental crowns or veneers, fit perfectly and function optimally.
  • Enhanced Patient Comfort: One significant advantage of iTero digital scanning is its noninvasive nature. Unlike traditional impression materials, there is no need for patients to bite down on gooey substances. The process is comfortable and efficient, reducing patient anxiety and discomfort during their dental visit.
  • Real-Time Visualization: The handheld camera, integrated with the iTero system, provides real-time visualization of the scanning process. Patients can see their teeth and oral structures on the screen, allowing them to better understand their oral health and treatment options. This visual feedback enhances patient education and facilitates a more informed decision-making process.
  • Streamlined Workflow and Faster Results: The digital scanning technology eliminates the need for physical impressions, reducing the time required for the impression process. Dental professionals can instantly transmit the digital scans to the dental laboratory, leading to faster turnaround times for restorations. This streamlined workflow saves time for both the dental team and the patients.
