iTero Digital Impressions
An accurate impression is fundamental to a successful outcome in restorative dentistry. Conduction digital impression procedures with Cadent iTero provides consistent, superior results, as well as numerous other benefits for both the dentist and patient.
The Cadent iTero digital impression system is dentistry gone 3-D. With iTero, our dentists can take a highly accurate digital impression for your crown or bridge area, completely eliminating the uncomfortable tray and putty impression. What’s more, iTero technology all but guarantees a perfect fit for your new crown or bridge, so you spend less time at the dentist’s office and more time enjoying your new smile.
Some of the benefits you can expect with an iTero impression:
COMFORT: If you have ever had a conventional impression taken, you know just how uncomfortable the process can be. The goopy putty can be messy, taste unpleasant, trays don’t fit comfortably in your mouth and in some patients it can cause gagging. With iTero, the only thing that touches your teeth is the tip of a hand-held wand.
GREATER SPEED: The digital impression is completed in approximately three to five minutes. No retaking impressions…no waiting for the impression to set and then to remove the impression to see if the detail needed was captured.
REDUCED ANXIETY: The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. Once we begin the scanning process, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary. You’ll never be stuck with a mouth full of goop! Kids love the technology too as they get to see their teeth rotate and move in 3D on a screen.
ACCURACY: The iTero digital impression system creates an exact replica of what is in your mouth. This reulsts in a more accurate fitting crown or bridge. The resulting crown, bridge or implant impression simply cannot be made more accurately with the old impression systems.
