The iTero Scanner uses advanced scanning technology to capture a detailed digital image of your teeth. This image will be used to create your dental restorations, including porcelain veneers and dental crowns.
An iTero scanner is an intraoral scanner that digitally captures dental impressions. The scanner takes a digital, 3D image of your teeth and oral structures. Most iTero scanners have a wand shape, which helps the scanner move around your mouth easily. The wand allows you to aim it at a dental impression. The iTero scanner then captures the image and sends the information to the iTero software. The iTero software will then process the information to create a 3D model of your teeth.
Benefits of an iTero scanner
The iTero scanner offers patients several benefits, including:
- iTero scanning is more comfortable than the old putty impressions. Patients don’t have to bite down on a tray with their lips stretched around. Instead, they can relax their mouth and jaw and only have to bite down gently.
- iTero scans are faster, too. It takes only 15-20 seconds to complete a scan.
- iTero scans don’t require a messy impression or putty material.
- iTero scans are more accurate, too.
How is an iTero scanner used?
Your iTero scanner is used to take a digital impression of your teeth. These impressions are used to create accurate restorations like dental crowns, bridges, and veneers.
Digital impressions are usually more comfortable for the patients than traditional ones because there’s no tray or putty in your mouth. Plus, the scanner captures much more detail than traditional impressions.
Is an iTero scanner safe?
Yes! The iTero scanner is safe because it doesn’t use any radiation. Instead, it uses near-infrared light to take a 3D scan of your teeth. The scanner also projects a blue light, which is used to take dental photos.
