For many, the most unpleasant part of a visit to the dentist is the process of getting impressions. Not only are they unpleasant for the patient, they also tend to be flawed renderings of a patient’s mouth. New, state-of-the-art technology has improved the impression process, allowing dentists the ability to get an accurate model of each patient’s mouth.
iTero Digital Impressions completely eliminate the need for messy putty and trays when doing impressions. These highly accurate renderings also eliminate the errors found using traditional methods as the digital impression system digitally scans a patient’s mouth and bite. These images are then transmitted to the laboratory computer so that an accurate model can be created of your jaw(s). We use the iTero in the fabrication of custom abutments for implants. The iTero can also be used within the planning software for more accurate positioning of a dental implant.
