Step into the modern world of digital impressions with iTero
Even though Dentists don’t say it, it is ugly to see patients gagging and spitting only to get impressions of their sick teeth. Dentists put up a real fight to be able to get a clear impression of patient’s teeth. Sometimes an accurate picture is never gotten because honestly, it is just so messy to put up with. The Itero digital scanner is a medical scanner that produces 3D test results and treatment plan. These scans have so far been used in over 1.2 million curative rounds and implant cases and more than 1.3 million orthodontic scans, consisting more than 600,000 Invisalign scans. When getting a dental test using the ordinary conventional method of meeting an orthodontist, ordinary numerous pictures of a patient’s teeth are taken in order to gather all the parts of the teeth for a clearer assessment. With this Scanner, a full 3D picture is taken and sent to a lab for assessment. Here is exactly how this scanner works.
How iTero Digital Impressions Work
• In short, according to iTero, show patients the outcome of their Invisalign treatment. On meeting your dentist, moulds of your teeth are taken using the scanner.
• The moulds are sent to a lab where they are scanned into a 3D replica of your teeth.
• The results are then used to create a treatment plan for your teeth’s condition
• Once the results are scanned, you don’t have to visit your Dentist again, unless you want to. The results and your 3D treatment plan are sent to your email where you can view it on any smart phone, tablet or computer. This way you can talk about your treatment plan with your Doctor on a chat app, phone, and email or through any other means of communication you wish to use.
Your 3D treatment plan includes:
• How long your treatment will take
• A transition of how your teeth will look like through each treatment process
• A final picture of how your teeth shall look after the treatment is complete.
