The iTero Scanner is an incredible tool that makes visits easier for our patients as well as our dentists.
What is an Intraoral Camera?If you have never heard the term before – and many haven’t – you might be wondering what, exactly, an intraoral camera is. As the name implies, an intraoral camera is a camera that is used inside of your mouth. It can be used to take highly accurate images of your teeth, and the best part is that these images are ready for review immediately, and can be stored for years at a time. You also do not have to worry about the mess of making molds using putty, one of the ways that we used to determine the impression and your teeth and your bite before this kind of technology was available. Instead, you can just kick back while we thoroughly scan the inside of your mouth.
What is the iTero Scanner?The iTero Scanner is a vital tool in our practice that has been in use for over a decade. It is, to put it simply, an intraoral camera that is used to help take some of the most precise shots of our patient’s gums, teeth, and oral structures possible. That means that we gain access to highly accurate images in incredibly short order, and can then use them to help us determine things like treatment plans as well as diagnoses. This kind of scanning is invaluable to the comfort and convenience of our patients, and it helps us serve you better.
Benefits of the iTero ScannerThere are a great many benefits that intraoral cameras provide. For one thing, they are incredibly convenient and produce highly accurate results. This means that we have a better idea about what is going on inside of your mouth, your gums, and your jaw than ever before. We can use this knowledge to give you the right diagnosis and ensure that we come up with the most accurate and effective treatment plan possible. This saves time as well as money for both patient and dentist! As a patient, you get your treatment plan quicker than ever before – less time waiting around. As dentists, we are confident that the plan we are prescribing is perfectly tailored to suit your needs.
