With 3D Technology we can now enhance the patient experience with fast, accurate real colour impressions.
At Smilleville Orthodontics we continually invest in the latest technology to offer our patients the best care possible as well as greater treatment opportunities. Our new Itero Element Scanner allows our staff to take accurate tooth and mouth impressions saving the patients’ time and having to undergo the discomfort from conventional dental impressions.
An intraoral scanner takes ‘impressions’ of your teeth, which is basically another word for image.
The dentist uses the ‘wand’, which a device around the size of a phone, to scan your mouth. The dentist puts the wand in your mouth and scans each tooth in turn. The scans go to the computer, which then stitches the images together into a 3D image
There are many intraoral scanners on the market, but the iTero is one of the most advanced. Here’s just a few of its features:
