No More Traditional Dental Impressions or Plaster Molds!
Previously, making molds of a patient’s mouth involved the use of bulky metal trays, which were filled with liquid plaster. These were pressed over the teeth and left in place for quite a while until the cement had hardened. Patients having molds taken were often left gagging and with yucky cement left all over and between their teeth. The iTero Scanner eliminates the need for all of this unpleasantness and leaves your mouth in pristine condition.
Our state-of-the-art iTero® System allows us to streamline the process of diagnosis by creating a 3-D digital image of your entire jaw and teeth in under 10 minutes.
We obtain much more specific information than the old-fashion method requiring patients to bite into cold liquid plaster-like molds for impressions of the teeth. This newest technology provides lower amounts of radiation than the older 2-D process. This assessment tool can be used for all of the types of braces whether Invisalign, Lingual or standard clear or metal braces.
This technology helps Dr. Paz give you the most accurate dental work available today. The system is powered by Cadent iTero.
