Have you ever had a traditional dental impression? It involves gloopy material that is placed into a shaper and hardens around your teeth. The process is uncomfortable at best and upsetting at worst. But you have to do what you have to do, right?
While you may require impressions for treatment, if you come to our practice, you have an alternative to the gloopy mess: iTero scans.
The iTero Element Scanner is a digital scanning system that makes incredibly accurate impressions—more accurate than traditional ones—by simply scanning your dental anatomy in a non-invasive manner. A wand is used to complete the scan and there is nothing uncomfortable about the process. The end result is a digital impression we can use for all forms of treatment.
