Modern technology has revolutionized the way we treat dental ailments. With equipment like the iTero digital intraoral scanner, our dentist at Wynnewood Dental Arts can provide safe and effective solutions to your dental problems.
The iTero dental scanner offers several advantages over traditional methods of creating dental impressions for restorations like veneers, crowns, bridges, and dentures.
The iTero digital scanning system captures detailed 3D images of your teeth and gums. Our dentist at Wynnewood Dental Arts uses the scans generated by the iTero scanner to create highly accurate digital models of your dental anatomy. These models can be used for various purposes, such as orthodontic treatment planning, dental restorations, and implant placement.
The iTero Element Scanner is a non-invasive, radiation-free alternative to traditional dental impressions and provides superior accuracy, speed, and comfort. It uses infrared light and a small camera to capture highly accurate 3D images of your mouth.
An ideal candidate for an iTero scanning system would be anyone undergoing orthodontic treatment, dental restorations, or implant placement. The iTero system can benefit patients looking for a non-invasive, fast, and comfortable alternative to traditional dental impressions.
We use the iTero digital intraoral scanner for patients of all ages, including children at Wynnewood Dental Arts. Patients with a strong gag reflex, difficulty holding their mouth open for a prolonged period, or difficulty biting down on traditional impression materials also find Intraoral scanners like the iTero to be a good option.
Dental scanning with the iTero Element is a simple procedure that is comfortable and pain-free. Our dentist will clean and dry your teeth before the scan can begin.
Next, you will be asked to bite down gently on a small device that holds the scanner in place, and the scanner will capture images as you move your jaw. The scan time can vary between 5 to 10 minutes.
