We Are Getting Our iTero Intraoral Digital Scanner Soon!


iTero Intraoral Digital Scanners

iTero launched its first intraoral scanner in 2007. An iTero scanner is a machine having a small instrument attached to it. These intraoral scanners are designed to deliver reliability, speed, and excellent visualization capabilities for orthodontists. These scanners have been used in over 6.7 million restorative crowns and bridges.

iTero intraoral scanners scan the mouths of patients and create three-dimensional dental images. The major benefit of these scanners is that these are simple to use. The images they produce are far better than two-dimensional images.

How Does iTero Intraoral Scanners Work?

iTero intraoral scanners feature a laser that runs through your mouth to create a 3D impression. During the scanning, you don’t need to open your mouth wide due to the smaller wand size. It’s no secret that digital impressions from iTero are quick and accurate.

Once the mouth of a patient has been scanned, the system can produce a detailed digital scan in just a minute. The scans can also be used to measure teeth width, arch width, and overbite/overjet accurately.
