Using the iTero scanner, Dr. Hashemi can take a highly accurate digital impression of your teeth and jaws. This technology completely eliminates messy impressions. The iTero scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital impressions also give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.
The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser and in as little as two to three minutes, the laser renders a perfect, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures.
Comfort: The 3-D scanning is more comfortable for patients than traditional impressions. Those who have sensitive gag reflexes or teeth that are sensitive to cold will be able to relax since the impression is all-digital.
Quality: Digital impressions limit the margin for error and distortion when compared to traditional impressions. This means that your orthodontic appliance will fit better in your mouth.
Cost-effective: There is no additional cost for a digital impression.
