Digital Scans

Digital Scans

In the realm of orthodontics, digital scans represent a groundbreaking advancement in the way impressions are taken. Traditional impressions often involve messy materials that can trigger discomfort and even gag reflexes in patients. However, with the introduction of digital scanning technology like the iTero scan, orthodontic practices can now offer a more comfortable and precise alternative.

What Is the iTero Scanner? 

iTero is a state-of-the-art digital scanning system that enables our orthodontist to capture highly detailed 3D images of a patient's teeth and gums. Unlike conventional impressions that require patients to bite into trays filled with gooey materials, the iTero scanner utilizes a handheld wand to painlessly and efficiently scan the mouth. This process creates a virtual model of the patient's teeth, allowing our orthodontist to plan and customize treatment with unparalleled accuracy.

How Does iTero Work?

The iTero scanner works by emitting a harmless laser light onto the teeth and gums, capturing thousands of images per second. These images are then stitched together by sophisticated software to create a comprehensive 3D model of the patient's dental anatomy. Our orthodontist can manipulate this digital model to simulate various treatment outcomes and precisely design orthodontic appliances such as braces or clear aligners.

The Benefits of iTero Scans

Comfortable Experience

Unlike traditional impressions that involve biting into gooey materials, iTero scanners use a handheld wand to capture digital impressions, offering a more comfortable experience for patients without triggering gag reflexes or discomfort.

Precise and Accurate

iTero scans produce highly detailed 3D images of the teeth and gums, allowing our orthodontist to plan treatment with unparalleled precision. This accuracy leads to better-fitting orthodontic appliances and more predictable treatment outcomes.

Improved Treatment Planning

With iTero scans, our orthodontist can manipulate digital models of the patient's dental anatomy to simulate various treatment outcomes. This allows for more comprehensive treatment planning and helps patients visualize the potential results of their orthodontic treatment.

Elimination of Messy Impressions

Gone are the days of messy impression materials that can cause discomfort and anxiety for patients. iTero scans eliminate the need for traditional impressions that make patients gag and offer a cleaner and more pleasant orthodontic experience.

Streamlined Communication

iTero scans can be easily stored and shared digitally, allowing for seamless communication between orthodontists, dental labs, and other healthcare providers. This streamlines the treatment process and ensures that everyone involved in the patient's care is on the same page.

Convenient Storage and Retrieval

Digital impressions captured by iTero scans can be conveniently stored in electronic records, making them easily accessible for future reference. This eliminates the need for physical storage of traditional impressions and reduces the risk of loss or damage.

Patient Education

iTero scans enable orthodontists to educate patients about their dental anatomy and treatment options more effectively. By visualizing their digital impressions and treatment simulations, patients gain a better understanding of their orthodontic needs and treatment goals.

Overall, iTero scans offer numerous benefits that enhance the orthodontic experience for both patients and orthodontic providers. From increased comfort and precision to improved treatment planning and communication, iTero scans are revolutionizing the way orthodontic care is delivered. Call us to learn more.
