The future of dentistry has arrived at Ken-Ton Family Dental!! A state of the art digital scanner, the iTero Element, will replace standard impression taking for crowns and veneers, restoring implants and fabricating Invisalign clear aligners for orthodontics. The scanner uses a light wand to produce a 3D model of your mouth which is viewed in real time.
Benefits of Digital Scanning itero Element Digital Scanner
In the past we took impressions by mixing a bitter tasting (but highly accurate) impression material, placing it in a tray and letting it sit in our patient’s mouths for 3 minutes. For our patients it was a very long 3 minutes.
Our new system allows for:
Easy & Comfortable Tooth Impressions
No messy impression material
Can pause scanning at any time means no gag
No unpleasant taste or smell
Better dental experience
Accurate & Fast Tooth Impressions
6000 frames per second produces outstanding fit of laboratory crowns and Invisalign trays
Digital accuracy results in less time spent in the dental chair
Easy rescanning of any changes made to the teeth. We can just rescan a small section and have it “stitched” into the rest of the scan
Digital Scanning Works With Invisalign
For patients interested in correcting their crooked smiles using orthodontics, the itero Element is a game changer. We can scan our patients in less then 10 minutes and then give them a look at their new smile. The iTero comes equipped with the Invisalign outcome simulator which can show you how your teeth may look after Invisalign treatment.
The iTero Scanner Helps With Dental Implants and Crowns
We can use the scanner to take impressions for dental implant crowns, bridges and tooth supported crowns and veneers. This gives us exceptionally accurate fitting final restorations.
Paying attention to the details has always benefited our patients ! Our office always strives to provide the best care possible. The iTero Element will continue to allow our office to provide the best orthodontic and restorative care that dentistry has to offer.
