iTero: Intraoral Scanner
An intraoral scanner is a digital dental imaging system that captures high-quality images of the interior of a patient’s mouth. Unlike traditional, film-based dental x-rays, intraoral scanners use digital sensors instead of film to capture images.
An intraoral scanner is a device that uses a camera to take digital measurements of a patient’s oral anatomy. The measurements can be uploaded and stored in patient charts and other records, helping to streamline the record-keeping process. They can also be used to help create accurate models on which to base restorative work. This allows dentists to provide more accurate restorations the first time through, which is better for the patient because they won’t have to make as many follow-up appointments for adjustments. It can also help patients avoid chairside delays and lengthen office visits. Intraoral scanners can scan a variety of surfaces, including teeth and soft tissues. They also create high-quality images that are clear and precise, providing patients with better treatment outcomes and satisfaction. This also helps to give dentists more accurate images to work with when diagnosing cavities or other issues, leading to more thorough and effective treatment plans.
In addition to improving patient care and giving dentists more accurate information to work with, intraoral scanners improve the practice management process as well. These high-quality images can be stored in electronic files, and practices can save them electronically for future reference. They can be shared with labs and technicians, increasing the speed and accuracy of communication. Plus, they can help to reduce errors and enhance the overall efficiency of dental practice.
Intraoral scanners are another valuable tool in the dentist’s toolbox that can be used to improve dental care for patients while enhancing the practice management process.
An intraoral scanner is a device that scans an image of the teeth and mouth for digital record-keeping purposes. It’s used to scan the bite, teeth surfaces, and the oral cavity as a whole. The benefits of using a digital impression system include the following:
