iTero unveiled the first intraoral scanner in 2007, and since then, this radical piece of equipment has dramatically changed the industry for dentists and orthodontists. Enhanced digital scanning has allowed dental professionals to work more efficiently and effectively.
Intraoral scanners feature a wand to scan a patient’s mouth, capturing thousands of images per second, which create a highly detailed three-dimensional representation. It takes just one dental professional to operate the scanner, and results are available within minutes. New wands are much smaller than previous versions, so reaching the back molars is more manageable and less stressful/invasive for the dental patient.
Incredible detail allows for creating accurate dental models for crowns, implants, veneers and restorative work. Orthodontists appreciate this novel technology as it helps them diagnose issues more accurately and develop detailed treatment plans.
Connected to a high-resolution screen, dental professionals can capture detailed images in real-time. Feedback is immediate, so there’s no guess-work or waiting days for lab results. Immediate feedback allows the practitioner to deliver a correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan. The entire process is accelerated and less stressful for the patient.
No more ill-fitting crowns or mouth guards. No more cumbersome moulds or misaligned bites. The iTero scanner represents a new level of dental comfort and quality.
Advances in technology over the past few years have been staggering, and nowhere have those advances been more evident than in the field of dentistry. No matter where you are in your dental journey, the iTero digital scanner makes the trip easier and more enjoyable.
Your dentist can create a detailed 3D image of your teeth in minutes with the iTero Digital Scanner.
