Best Candidates for iTero Digital Scanning
We use our iTero handheld digital scanner to take impressions of your mouth for completing restorative care, such as if you need to treat a damaged tooth with a custom crown or replace missing teeth with a bridge or dental implants. Safe for patients of all ages, iTero impressions are also taken to prepare for orthodontic treatment with Invisalign or to fabricate a post-orthodontic Invisalign Vivera retainer. iTero is a revolutionary system that allows you to skip the hassle and time of uncomfortable, messy dental impressions and enjoy more accurate treatment results.
What to Expect with iTero® Digital Scanning
Using our iTero Element 2 intraoral scanner, we will take a comfortable optical and laser intraoral scan (impression) of your mouth, which will allow us to custom-design and fabricate your restoration or Invisalign trays for a highly precise fit. Our team will place the intraoral scanning wand in your mouth between the upper and lower arches, which will quickly capture a detailed view of your teeth and gums. This information will be transmitted to our computer system, generating a high-definition 3D model of your mouth. Unlike traditional dental impressions, you can breathe normally, stop to sneeze if necessary, or pause to ask a question during the iTero digital impression process. Impressions taken with iTero intraoral scanners enable our partner lab to customize dental restorations and clear aligners or retainers with greater precision and detail, offering a better fit and treatment outcome.
iTero Digital Scanning Follow-Up
Once your digital impressions are complete and the 3D model of your teeth has been generated in our computer system, our team will review your scans and treatment plan with you. When taking iTero impressions for restorative care or Invisalign services, we can modify your scans to give you an idea of how your smile will appear once your treatment is complete. After iTero scans are taken, our team will forward these impressions to our partner lab for the fabrication of custom restorations or Invisalign appliances. Your digital impressions will also be stored in your patient record within our system and referenced by Doctors Caron and Kenney as needed to complete your care.
