About iTero Scanner:
The iTero intraoral scanner is an efficient way of creating digital impressions without having to use bulky tool inside patient’s mouth. At Edgewater Pediatric Dentistry, we use this state-of-the-art technology to take accurate 3D digital images of your mouth. By taking these scans we eliminate the need for impressions. The iTero scanner is all about patient comfort. It delivers a digital impression that is much more accurate than a routine dental impression. The best part is that the iTero scanner does not expose our patients to any sort of radiation and is completely safe.
How does it work?
The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. The mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser, and in as little as two to three minutes, the laser renders a digitally perfect, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures. Through digital software, you’ll then be able to follow the progress of the scans, including a 3D model of your teeth on our computer screen.
