iTero Digital Impression System:This breakthrough technology eliminates the need to take plaster impressions. Accurate impressions of a patient’s teeth and jaw are essential for any orthodontic work, and we can now achieve a much clearer image of a patient’s teeth with the aid of the iTero scanner.
The scanner eliminates the need for using putty and trays; instead the intra-oral laser scanner creates a 3D image of the teeth and gums. By using laser and optical scanning it captures a perfect 360-degree image of the teeth and allows us to view them from all angles. The images are processed immediately which allows the patient to view their teeth on the computer screen straight after scanning.
The image is incredibly detailed, capturing the contours and surfaces of the teeth and gums perfectly. This accuracy allows for a much more perfect fit for orthodontic appliances. The 3D image is sent directly to the laboratory where the patient’s orthodontic appliances are created.
