Itero is a fast 3D digital scanner used to take onscreen scans of your teeth’s surfaces and gum tissue immediately. There’s no more need for the gooey mess that was used before to take impressions, which also eliminates the unpleasant taste and smell of the impression materials.
Patients breathe and swallow as they normally would as Dr. Slutsky and/or the assistants use the iTero’s Element Scanner’s Wand to acquire pictures. The scanner takes astonishingly meticulous impressions of your teeth and gums, while you can watch on the screen as they are captured.
Once the scan is complete, Dr. Slutsky will then have a 3D model of your mouth that can be used to create clear aligners and give you an idea as to what your new smile may look like. Ask our office for more details during your next visit!
