Digital impressions with an iTero iOC scanner
We are happy to announce our iTero iOC scanner!
Thankfully the goop and gagging of the old way to take dental impressions is no longer the only option. With state-of-the-art technology at our progressive office, we provide a great and comfortable way to take dental impressions with the iTero scanner, a process that does NOT include x-ray radiation.
The iTero scanner allows our office to take a digital impression- a highly accurate, digital 3D image of the tooth surfaces and gum tissue. The iTero scanner is all about keeping you comfortable while delivering precise imagery, without the putty-filled impression tray!
Not only is it more comfortable, but taking a digital scan verses a traditional impression is faster, which allows you to spend less time in the office and more time enjoying your new smile!
Advantages of the iTero iOC scanner over traditional putty impressions include:
It’s accurate. It produces the most accurate dental records because it eliminates errors caused by patient movement and removal of impression.
It’s faster. Digital impressions are taken within minutes, which means less time in the chair for you! The file of the digital impression is now e-mailed to the lab, rather than sent by snail mail which reduces the time between receiving your case back from the lab.
It’s safe. Does not expose you to radiation. The scanner uses laser to generate the images.
It’s real-time. You can view your impressions on a computer screen immediately, as well as a model of what your smile will look like at the end of the treatment.
It’s comfortable. No more gooey mess associated with impression materials only a small digital scanner, so now you can breathe and swallow comfortably. No unpleasant taste.
