For many, the most unpleasant part of a visit to the dentist is the process of getting impressions. Not only are they unpleasant for the patient, they also tend to be flawed renderings of a patient’s mouth. New, state-of-the-art technology has improved the impression process, allowing dentists the ability to get an accurate model of each patient’s mouth.
iTero Digital Impressions completely eliminate the need for messy putty and trays when doing impressions. These highly accurate renderings also eliminate the errors found using traditional methods as the digital impression system digitally scans a patient’s mouth and bite. These images are then transmitted to the laboratory computer so that an accurate model can be created of your mouth.
We have a "No Gag" policy!
If you have a sensitive gag reflex, having traditional impressions done can be an excruciating experience. With iTero, we are able to take digital impressions that do not require messy trays or putty. Instead, iTero impressions take scans of your mouth without trays and with no gag!
iTero and Invisalign
Many patients who are rejected as candidates for Invisalign are sent away because their impressions show that they are not ideal candidates. However, many of those rejected on this basis had tradition impressions done. With iTero, only 0.4% of intraoral scans are rejected compared to 4% of traditional impressions. iTero reduces the issues with fit in Invisalign and can speed up shipping of your trays by 50% vs. traditional impressions.
