What is an iTero Scanner?

The iTero Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital imaging device used in dentistry. It replaces traditional dental impressions, which often involve messy putty-like materials. With the iTero Scanner, a small handheld wand captures highly detailed 3D images of your teeth and gums, creating a virtual model of your mouth. This cutting-edge technology allows for more accurate treatment planning and enhanced patient experiences.


Dental Procedures Enhanced by the iTero Scanner

The iTero Scanner can be used in a variety of dental procedures, revolutionizing the way impressions are taken. Here are a few areas where the scanner shines:

Invisalign: If you’re considering Invisalign clear aligners to straighten your teeth, the iTero Scanner is used to create a digital impression of your teeth. This enables the creation of precise aligners that fit comfortably and deliver effective results.

Restorative Procedures: Whether you need dental crowns, bridges, or veneers, the iTero Scanner ensures a seamless fit and natural-looking results. Accurate digital impressions contribute to the success and longevity of restorative dental treatments.

Other Impressions: The iTero Scanner is also used in various procedures where traditional impressions were once required, such as fabricating mouthguards, nightguards, and even sleep apnea appliances. This technology streamlines the process and improves patient satisfaction.

The digital scans capture intricate details of your teeth and gums, resulting in highly accurate treatment planning. It provides a visual representation of your dental condition, allowing you to better understand and engage in your treatment journey.
