Treatment With the iTero® Scanner
The iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner can be used to assist in all kinds of dental treatments. Dentists can use the scanner to take three-dimensional image scans of a patient’s teeth and bite. There is no need for uncomfortable dental impressions with messy mouth putty and gagging, and there are no voids or distortions that require the dentist to take another impression. The dentist can wirelessly transmit the images to the laboratory so that the dental implant, tooth restoration, Invisalign® trays, or other fabrication can be made quickly. Simulated outcomes for treatments such as Invisalign® can be seen within minutes so that patients know what results they can look forward to. The dentist has the privilege of providing a nearly flawless treatment every time. At our dental practice, we use the iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner to speed up, enhance, and ensure reliability and comfort with a wide range of our dental treatments.
iTero® Element™ TimeLapse Technology
Dr. Chung is utilizing the benefits of the iTero® scanner for all of her patients, not just those needing restorations and Invisalign®. iTero®’s innovative TimeLapse Technology makes it possible to track any changes in teeth wear or position for record keeping. With incredible visual comparisons of historical scans and current scans, patients can see for themselves any changes in tooth wear, movement, and gums over time. This advanced technology helps patients to more clearly visualize their situation, understand the benefits of the treatment, and develop a better understanding of their expected results over time.
