What is an iTero intra oral digital scanner used for?

iTero’s intraoral scanners scan a patient’s mouth and capture images to create three-dimensional dental images in minutes. Intraoral scanners are easy to use and can be operated by one person. The scans they produce are also more detailed than the traditional two-dimensional images they replace. Intraoral digital scans help dentists create accurate physical tooth models for restorative work, including crowns, veneers, and implants. They also help orthodontists diagnose orthodontic problems and develop the best treatment plans.

This scanner is especially helpful for our Invisalign patients. iTero intraoral scanners integrate seamlessly with the Invisalign system to enable a highly digitized experience. For patients, this means no more gagging at the impression, no more goo, no more discomfort and no more long waits for aligners. The smooth integration of iTero and the Invisalign system significantly speeds up aligner production. Because intraoral scans are transmitted to the IDS (Invisalign Doctor Site) three times faster than polyvinylsiloxane (PVS) impressions.

The smooth integration of iTero and Invisalign also gives your orthodontist a unique opportunity to micromanage their progress. This approach, which focuses on tooth alignment, allows for faster and more accurate results.

iTero scanners also enable real-time simulations. This means you can see your dental impression being created as the wand moves through your mouth. Simulation gives you a greater role and control in the process. Any resulting scans can be forwarded to the manufacturer of your aligner of choice if you wish. Our intraoral scanning process only takes a few minutes. In addition, there are situations where intraoral scan may be beneficial such as: Dentures, Creation of dental crowns, Preparation for oral surgery, Dentist records.
