With the iTero scanner, restorative dentistry can be provided with less discomfort and more satisfaction. This technology allows your Boston dentist to create an accurate digital impression of your teeth. The new technology is versatile and eliminates the need to create tray or putty impressions. In contrast to previous techniques, patients can enjoy a more pleasant experience and avoid the need for multiple rounds of impressions.
The iTero scanner creates realistic and precise impressions direclty from the beginning of treatment, which results in a more comfortable patient experience. The creation of digital impressions allows teeth to be rendered in 3D, which helps enhance the treatment during the consultation process.
How do iTero impressions work?
The technology that the iTero scanner uses helps capture the structure of the teeth and gums using advanced optical technology. As your dentist uses the scanner, they can pause or restart the process as many times as necessary to create the most favorable impression.
The laser used during the scanning process is radiation-free and the process can be completed in as little as two to three minutes. A perfect, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structure is created through the precise application of the laser. With the help of digital software, patients can continually check on the scan progress. This advanced technology can be applied to many restorative treatments, including veneers, bridges, dental implants, crowns, and more.
