The iTERO scanner is the most modern 3D scanner. It is a device created especially for dentistry. In a few minutes a digital impression of all teeth is created and transferred to the computer. Than it can be worked on to make orthodontic treatment planning or other dental simulations.
Dental iTero scanner:
Thanks to the iTERO scanner, there is no need for traditional impressions anymore. This is a great solution for people who have a strong emetic reflex or simply don’t like the classic impressions. The digital method is the most comfortable for the patient. Even delicate teeth, especially in case of periodontal disease, will remain in place after such examination.
Impressions, in the digital version, can be performed repeatedly and allow the doctor to observe:
– progress of orthodontic treatment
– changes that take place in our teeth over time.
iTERO scanner allows us in a few minutes to see what the effect of orthodontic treatment in our case could be. Its unique software in conjunction with the INVISALIGN system can visualize changes in the position of our teeth that are possible to perform. In addition, we can make changes in line with our expectations in order to see what our dream smile would look like. On the basis of one digital scan, many simulations are performed, taking into account different variants of treatment.
In addition, the patient may receive a planned treatment visualisation by e-mail. Therefore it is possible to see, with no rush or hurry, the expected effects of an orthodontic treatment at ones convenience, as well as read in details all about INVISALIGN system or ask questions to the physician in case of any doubt.
Only with the help of the iTERO scanner and the INVISALIGN system it is possible to determine with the doctor and see the visualization of what can be achieved by the orthodontic treatment before it even starts. When the patient is fully satisfied with the effects of the planned treatment, the INVISALIGN treatment process can start immediately.
People who are in the course of INVISALIGN orthodontic treatment in the 3G DENTIST clinic have periodically performed free controls with our iTERO scanner to ensure precise process control and treatment safety.
Patients grinding their teeth may, with the use of special iTERO scanner feature called Timelaps, observe changes in their teeth and predict their progression. Performed scans can be an indispensable source of information when reconstruction of damaged teeth is needed.
The intraoral iTERO scanner can also be used for planning prosthetic treatment. The 3D impressions made with it are used to make crowns and bridges.
The advantages of teeth scanning with the iTero scanner:
– no need to use impression mass
– no need to repeat the impression
– durability of impressions made in time and easy storage
– safe for patients with periodontal disease, where there is a risk of damage to the tooth while taking classic impressions
– faster transfer of the impression to the laboratory, thus service in a shorter time.
