This advanced digital imaging system enables our skilled dental professionals to capture highly detailed 3D images of your teeth and gums, facilitating a more precise diagnosis and personalised treatment plan. Say goodbye to traditional, messy dental impressions and embrace the future of dentistry with the iTero® intraoral scanner at OptiSmile.
The iTero® scanner is leading-edge dental technology dentists and orthodontists use for digital impressions and treatment planning. It is a non-invasive, handheld intraoral scanner that captures highly accurate, 3D images of a patient’s teeth, gums, and bite in real-time.
As a dental practice, let’s explore why the patient experience with the iTero® scanner is better. In the past, before the iTero® scanner, we used conventional impression methods. Here’s what the process looked like:
Now, let’s compare that experience to the digital impressions using the iTero® scanner at OptiSmile:
Digital impressions captured by the iTero® scanner are more precise than traditional methods, such as using dental putty, leading to better-fitting dental restorations, orthodontic appliances, and treatment plans.
The scanner is non-invasive and eliminates the need for uncomfortable dental putty impressions, which can cause gagging or discomfort for patients.
Digital scans can be quickly sent to our dental lab and directly integrated into treatment planning software, resulting in quicker turnaround times for treatments like dental restorations, crowns, and Invisalign® aligners.
The 3D images provided by the iTero® scanner allow patients to better visualise their dental issues and treatment options, so you can see what we see, improving patient understanding and satisfaction.
