Why is a digital scanner better than traditional dental impressions?
In the past, dental impressions were made by pressing a putty-like material onto the teeth. Patients bite down into a tray for several minutes while their dentist ensures a correct fit. While traditional molds are still widely used today, they are not ideal for everyone. The trays can be uncomfortable or cause a gag reflex in some individuals. Plus, getting an accurate impression can be challenging and time-consuming.
Instead, the iTero digital scanner takes the guesswork out of this process. It's a safe, fast, and accurate way to capture detailed images.
What is the iTero digital scanner?
The iTero digital scanner replaces simple dental impressions with a 3D scanning experience. Using cutting-edge imaging technology, the device captures 6,000 photos of your mouth per second. This information is then used to create a 3D model of your teeth and gums. Once the images are captured, Cosmetic Dental Associates views the model on a computer screen to gain a better understanding of your smile.
