Is an intra-oral scanner that works by capturing thousands of pictures of the inside of your mouth, and then assembling them into an incredibly accurate 3D model of your mouth, teeth and gums. A scanner that allows us to plan the orthodontic treatment analyzing the teeth of our patients. The scanner uses medical-grade low-radiation lasers to take up to 20 pictures a second of your teeth. We gradually moves and rotates it to be sure to get a complete scan of your whole mouth. As they do this, gradually a 3D model of the inside of your mouth will emerge on the iTero screen. Usually this whole process takes less than 10 minutes.
There are many benefits of using 3D dental scanning technology like iTero, not least because of its speed.
-The first one is that it eliminates the need to stuff a big wad of funny-feeling bad-tasting gloop in your mouth to take an impression.
-It’s quicker, it’s cleaner, and it’s far more accurate than traditional impressions.
-Scanning can identify key potential issues that could be missed by traditional impressions trays
-3D iTero scanning allows you to see the effects of a treatment before you have it.
-Its use helps Dr. Eva Gonzalez plan out Invisalign treatments and assist their patients with visualizing their results.
