What is an iTeroⓇ Scanner?
An iTeroⓇ Scanner is a state-of-the-art device used by dentists and orthodontists to scan the inside of the mouth and create extremely accurate three-dimensional models in minutes. iTeroⓇ Scanners produce more detailed and exact digital representations than traditional plaster-impression molding methods.
These ultra-intricate 3D models are used to diagnose several dental and orthodontic issues and provide roadmaps for remedying them. They help dental professionals easily create physical tooth models for a variety of dental work, including porcelain veneers, dental implants, and crowns. They also assist orthodontists in creating the best-fitting Invisalign or braces for their patients. Additionally, iTeroⓇ Scanners can provide comprehensive documentation of your dental records for easy reference and insight. Your dentist will be able to monitor and compare gum recession, tooth decay, or tooth movement over time.
How Does It Work?
The iTeroⓇ Scanner is an intraoral device. It is inserted into the mouth and uses modern optical technology to capture thousands of images per second. The new and improved scanner wand has been condensed to be able to fit into the deepest parts of the mouth, allowing for fully accurate molar scans. The comfortable process allows patients to be able to breathe, speak, or swallow as they normally would. They can even take a break and ask any questions they may have during the procedure. The captured images are immediately digitized and displayed in real-time on visual screens.
Patients and dentists alike can watch the creation of dental impressions as they happen. This allows for easy diagnosis of possible issues and the brainstorming of proper treatments in just a few minutes. The visualization that the iTeroⓇ Scanner provides ensures patients feel included and informed during their dental visit.
A Comparison of Options
Dental impressions are an important part of any dental practice. They are used for a variety of dental procedures including; crowns, bridges, veneers, mouthguards, diagnostic models, and take-home whitening trays. It’s important to understand the methods your dentist employs in order to ensure they are the right fit for your needs.
Some dentist offices offer traditional ways of creating dental impressions. In this somewhat outdated method, trays are filled with a thick liquid material called alginate and then inserted into a patient’s mouth. The patient must then wait for the material to dry and harden before they are removed. This creates a mold of the mouth which can then be sent off to a clinical or dental lab for the intended usage. Although these processes are generally considered safe and effective, they are typically time-consuming, uncomfortable, and downright unpleasant.
At Greenspoint Dental, we use the iTeroⓇ Scanner to create our dental impressions. This scanner has a variety of innovative advantages when compared to more traditional methods. The iTeroⓇ Scanner provides a comfortable, interactive, and time-efficient method to create dental impressions. Some additional benefits include:
- Continued Monitoring of Dental Issues
- Extremely Accurate Impressions
- Radiation Free
- Works with many Orthodontic Treatments
- Real-Time Simulations
- Saves Time
- Painless for patient
