iTero™ Digital Impressions – Speed, Accuracy & Comfort
Artful Orthodontics is proud to offer iTero Digital Impressions for our patients. Unpleasant putty impressions are a thing of the past with the iTero Digital system!
The accuracy and detail of the iTero scan vs a putty impression is comparable to watching HDTV over standard definition TV.
The iTero Scanner captures the contours of the teeth and gingival structures, producing an accurate digital orthodontic model in minutes. This non-invasive procedure is completed at your initial consultation, so Dr. Pawlak can create your custom treatment plan.
How iTero Works
As the iTero handheld wand takes a digital, 3D image of your prepared teeth, it can be stopped as needed. The wand is non-invasive, and you can breathe or swallow as needed during the procedure. If you need to move or adjust, you can do so – the accuracy of the handheld wand is first-rate. Needing to “re-do” impressions is very rare. Plus, you can look at the iTero 3D image on the screen in real-time. Instead of shipping impressions to the lab to be scanned, the digital image of your teeth is sent electronically in an instant.
