iTero™ Digital Impression System
Conventional vs Digital Impressions
No more goop, gagging, or discomfort! Using an iTero™ scanner, Dr. John Redmond takes a highly accurate digital impression. The new technology completely eliminates the tray and putty impressions where the experience is comparable to stuffing a big wad of gum in your mouth. The old technique is unpleasant and frequently results in taking multiple rounds of impressions that can be rejected, inaccurate, or misplaced. The iTero scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital impressions give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.
How Does it Work?
The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. Once the scanning process begins, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary.
Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser and in as little as fifteen minutes renders a digitally perfect, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures. Through digital software you’ll then be able to follow the progress of the scans including a three-dimensional model of your teeth on our computer screen.
