Carrollwood Dental Studio is a digital imaging practice and proud owner of the iTero Element Intraoral Scanner, a state-of-the-art digital scanning system. The new iTero digital scanner reduces the dependence on traditional, messy alginate impressions for many dental treatments.
What is iTero Dental Scanner?
The iTero Digital scanner takes high-quality, detailed scans of your teeth. Unlike the traditional method that involves using putty to create dental impressions, iTero uses 3D technology to get a far more accurate scan of your dentition.
The digital impressions taken with the help of the iTero dental scanner can be used to create veneers, crowns, and bridges. The iTero can also be used to create a digital before and after simulation for Invisalign® treatment so you can see the expected results after the treatment. The scanner produces much more detailed scans of your teeth which help dentists to make more accurate and comfortable orthodontics.
Why Might You Need the iTero Scanner?
At Carrollwood Dental Studio, we use the iTero dental scanner whenever dental impressions are needed. Some instances where iTero digital impression scanners are used include designing dental bridges, crowns, and Invisalign® braces.
The digital 3D images from this dental impression scanner provide an accurate picture of your teeth and surrounding soft tissues.
Who Is An Ideal Candidate For iTero Digital Dental Scanner?
Most patients coming into our dental office are good candidates for the iTero scanner. An iTero Scanner is painless and quick and provides our dentist with a detailed scan of your teeth. The scan is very safe and can even be used in pediatric patients.
What Can You Expect With A Digital Dental Scan With iTero?
We assure you that your experience while scanning dental impressions will be comfortable and relaxing. The procedure begins once you are comfortably seated on one of our operatories.
The dentist places a small wand-like object inside your mouth, sweeping it above and around your teeth. As the iTero system takes images of your teeth, it begins to appear on the computer screen for the dentist to study.
Once the image is saved, we use the 3D scans to create highly customized restorations that perfectly complement your mouth and dentition. The scan is safe and will take only a few minutes to complete.
