What the iTero 5D element does
Digital Records - The Itero 5D® is a digital scanner which takes three 3 dimensional pictures of your teeth and gums. Once we have this digital record of your mouth we can take future scans and the iTero, using time lapse technology, can compare the two scans for changes in teeth and gums. It can show where teeth are wearing and it can show changes in the gum line to indicate recession. The future is now.
Intraoral Camera-The proverbial picture is worth a thousand words might have been easily talking about intraoral photography. Using the iTero 5D® I can show patients what I see in their mouths. The picture angle can be easily changed with a touch of the finger and we can zoom in to illustrate the condition of teeth. Patient education is important at our office as we like our patients to understand the condition of their teeth and the options to restore their teeth and their smiles. The iTero 5D is a very effective tool for education.
Invisalign Outcome Simulator
Invisalign Outcome Simulator-Once a dental scan is completed . The iTero can show you just how straight your teeth can be. With just a few clicks this amazing technology virtually repositions your teeth to show you the potential outcome using Invisalign orthodontics.
Fabrication of crowns, onlays and dentures-The digital technology of the iTero allows us to make incredibly accurate impressions which in turn makes the dentistry we do even better! By taking these “virtual impressions” we are eliminating messy impression materials that patients dislike. Restorations are now made from the iTero digital impressions which, along with the availability of new materials, enhance the final product. With exceptional fit and increased durability, these restorations have the potential to last a lifetime.
