At Morrison Dental Care, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the most comfortable dental care. As a result, we utilize the digital technology of the Itero scanner rather than the traditional impression method. Not only does Itero eliminate the use of gooey impression material and trays, but it allows Drs. Lewis and David Morrison to take a 3-D digital scan of the patient’s teeth and bite, make adjustments in real time, and transmits the file to the laboratory for processing. In short, Itero allows for a more comfortable and accurate impression method that also yields faster results.
Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect during my Itero treatment?
The Itero scanner is a hand-held wand that will be placed in your mouth and moved throughout to obtain the needed views and pictures. These collective images are then rendered into a single, digital image depicting your teeth and soft tissue structures.
What procedures are Itero used for?
Itero can be used for a variety of reasons, but it is most helpful in Invisalign, restoration, and orthodontic treatments. In the case of Invisalign, Itero obtains accurate images that can be digitally manipulated to show the end result. The aligners needed to obtain this result can be quickly and easily produced, meaning treatment is faster and more precise. For restorations, the comprehensive images offered by Itero allows Drs. Lewis and David Morrison to make the best decision regarding treatment and execution. Finally, Itero shows an overview of your bite that is crucial when deciding on orthodontic treatment.
