The iTero scanner is an intraoral scanner that helps orthodontists and other dental professionals get more accurate readings and images when it comes to procedures such as:
- Orthodontic treatment
Designed to be faster and more reliable than other scanning methods, the iTero scanner produces top-of-the-line visual components, so orthodontists can construct a more customized plan for your treatment. The iTero scanner has been used in over 18 million orthodontic scans and is the top choice for orthodontists across the nation.
iTero scanners help patients get a better idea of what their teeth will look like once treatment is complete. This is a big draw for many orthodontic patients, since the end result is often at the forefront of their minds. The iTero scanner is also able to show patients their progress based on their compliance with the system, which can help those who may be having difficulties wearing their aligners properly and for the recommended amount of time each day.
Benefits of the iTero Scanner
Not only does the iTero scanner deliver faster, more accurate results, the scans it takes can also be delivered to the patient via email. This helps the patient get a better understanding of their treatment at any time.Dentists and Orthodontists can send these scans quickly and easily to the lab of their choice within minutes, which helps get their patients started with treatment faster. No waiting around for impressions to be sent via snail mail. Once your scan is sent to the lab, the work can begin on constructing your customized aligners.
The biggest benefit to patients is this technology can replace the messy uncomfortable impressions that used to be a requirement to get braces or Invisalign. No more sitting in the chair for what felt like hours with a mouth full of goop.
