Here at Beetham Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we are proud to offer an iTero 3D scanner. We want to be able to provide the highest quality care so that you can have the smile you deserve. We are constantly updating our equipment to give you state-of-the-art dental care.
One of our newest pieces of equipment is our iTero 3D scanner. It allows us to take images of your smile. We can also use it to show you the results you can get with Invisalign®, which are clear aligners.
Using our iTero® digital scanning system, we will create fast, precise 3D digital images of your teeth and bite. This contemporary technology eliminates the tray and putty impressions. The iTero scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. A full scan can be completed in under 5 minutes. You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new smile. Digital impressions also give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process. Dr. Beetham will then map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be.
One of the benefits of collecting images with our scanner is that you won’t have to get impressions made, which can be quite unpleasant. You won’t have to deal with the unpleasant taste of the material. Instead, the scanning process is quite comfortable, and you can breathe normally during the procedure.
The procedure is also safe because there is no radiation. Instead, it uses lasers to take millions of images. The images are put together to fabricated a highly accurate 3-D scan. Our iTero 3D scanner allows us to ensure that your Invisalign® aligners or retainers fit perfectly in your mouth. After taking the images, we can get you fitted and started with your new aligners faster than if we had to make an impression.
Our iTero 3D scanner is also fast. We can see your smile and the results instantly. It allows us to discuss in one visit both your smile and what results we hope to achieve. We can also use this time to talk about what you should expect through the whole process of fixing your smile.
