No Goop, No Mess, No Putty Necessary
VIBE Dental offers patients a more comfortable, convenient, and patient-friendly alternative to the dreaded impression gel that is normally associated with dental impressions. The iTero Intraoral Scanner allows doctors to take a 3D digital scan of a patient’s teeth and bite rather than using a viscous impression material. Not only is the iTero Intraoral Scanner significantly more patient-friendly, but it also offers increased precision and eliminates the risks of gagging or swallowing excess impression gel.
Traditionally, dental impressions were taken by inserting large metal trays and liquid plaster against the upper and lower jaw. The material sets to become an elastic solid, providing a detailed replica of a patient’s smile. This method is uncomfortable, time-consuming, and often inaccurate as opposed to the iTero scanner.
Benefits of the iTero Intraoral Scanner:
- Comfortable – No gooey mess associated with impression materials – Breathe and swallow naturally during the digital 3D scan – No unpleasant taste
- Safe – Does not expose you to radiation – Uses a laser to generate the images
- Accurate – Precise fit of crowns, bridges, veneers, and Invisalign® – Eliminates the need to retake impressions multiple times
- Fast – View 3D scans onscreen with your dentist immediately – Digital impressions taken for restorative purposes – are complete in approximately 3 to 5 minutes
Thankfully, old-school impressions are no longer the only option. With state-of-the-art technology and the progressive dentist office that’s providing your treatment, making a great—and comfortable—first impression with the iTero® scanner has never been easier.
The iTero scanner allows us to take a digital impression—a highly accurate, digital 3D image of the individual characteristics of your tooth surfaces and gum tissue. The iTero scanner is all about keeping you comfortable while delivering precise imagery, without the putty-filled impression tray that makes you gag!
Not only is it more comfortable, but taking a digital scan for your new crown, bridge, or Invisalign® aligners is quick, which allows you to spend less time at the dentist’s office and more time enjoying your new smile!
