3-D scanning and digital x-rays use the latest technology to increase patient comfort and improve clinical outcomes. Digital radiography uses computer scanned images to produce dental x-ray images that can be enhanced, reverse contrasted, or e-mailed to insurance companies or to referred specialists. One great health advantage of this system is that it produces drastically lowered x-radiation exposure when taking radiographs of your teeth. In other words, you can have a panoramic x-ray plus four bite-wing x-rays and be exposed to less radiation than one x-ray would have exposed you to in the past!
It is also of great help in cosmetic procedures. Plus, these are completely safe for kids too!
There are mainly 2 types of dental x-rays:
These x-rays help in viewing the entire teeth, or a particular part of teeth in detail, jaws and even skull. Digital x-rays have revolutionized the dentistry procedures – making them fast and efficient. They help a dentist make accurate diagnosis and also ensure exact fitments.
With the use of digitally scanned dental impressions, there is no longer the need for messy impression paste in your mouth for crowns, bridges or for Invisalign®. The iTero® digital impression system (scanner) transmits data to the laboratory where the crowns, bridges, veneers and Invisalign® trays are made with vastly improved accuracy of fit and form.
iTero® has revolutionized 3D digital dentistry. For a better patient experience and the best fit, we have invested in the best equipment for intraoral scanning and digital impressions.
