We take pride in educating our patients so they understand the treatment process and how it will benefit their oral health.

iTero Digital Scanner

iTero Digital Scanning

iTero scans are a very non-invasive form of imaging technology that does not use radiation. A wand is moved over the teeth, and the scanner works quickly to collect images, capturing all the necessary data in a matter of minutes. Then, it compiles the images into a complete 3D model that can be viewed on a computer screen.

iTero Scans vs. Traditional Modelling

In the past, dental modelling was typically achieved by applying plaster to a patient’s teeth and allowing the plaster to form and solidify around them. This can be extremely uncomfortable for patients and is not as accurate as digital renderings are.

iTero scans often replace these more invasive techniques for 3D modelling of the teeth and mouth, improving patient experiences and making the process more comfortable and straightforward for dentists and patients alike.

The iTero scanner measures and maps out the mouth in detail and in full colour, allowing dentists to see the exact positions and shapes of the teeth and gums. From there, dentists can create comprehensive treatment plans. They can also have treatment options such as dental appliances constructed directly from the data in the scans.

The wand in the iTero system is also much smaller than traditional intraoral scanners, which makes it easier for dentists to take accurate scans of the molars.

Intraoral Cameras

Intraoral cameras allow patients to have a unique view of their teeth. This allows our patients to understand their diagnoses and also make decisions based on the treatment. An intraoral camera is connected to a computing unit that is beside the dental chair. Your dentist will use a small wand to view each tooth. The intraoral camera can magnify the tooth more than 30x, and it can also be shown in full color. The images are transmitted onto a TV screen so that you and your dentist can both precisely view every angle of your tooth.
