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.
