At 4th Avenue Dental, we pride ourselves on providing our patients with the latest in dental technology to ensure the best possible care. One of the cutting-edge technologies we offer is the iTero digital impression system, which allows us to take precise digital impressions of your teeth and gums for a variety of dental treatments, including Invisalign.
What Is the iTero Digital Impression System?
The iTero digital impression system is a state-of-the-art dental technology that utilizes a small, handheld wand to take high-resolution digital impressions of your teeth and gums. This advanced technology eliminates the need for traditional, messy impressions, making the process faster and more comfortable for our patients.
How Does iTero Work?
The iTero system works by using a handheld wand with a built-in camera to capture high-resolution images of your teeth and gums. As the wand is passed over your teeth, the images are instantly displayed on a computer screen, creating a 3D digital model of your teeth and gums.
This 3D digital model is incredibly accurate and can be used to create custom dental restorations, including crowns, bridges, and veneers. It can also be used to plan orthodontic treatments, such as Invisalign, providing a clear view of your teeth and gums to help create a personalized treatment plan.
iTero Digital Impression Benefits
The iTero system offers several benefits for our patients, including:
- Greater accuracy: The digital impressions created by the iTero system are incredibly precise, leading to better-fitting dental restorations and orthodontic treatments.
- Improved comfort: Traditional impressions can be messy and uncomfortable, but the iTero system eliminates the need for messy impression materials, making the process more comfortable for our patients.
- Faster turnaround time: The iTero system allows us to create digital impressions quickly and efficiently, reducing the time it takes to create and place dental restorations.
- Better patient communication: The 3D digital model created by the iTero system allows us to show our patients exactly what their teeth and gums look like, making it easier to explain treatment options and answer questions.
