ITERO lets you say good bye to Dental Impressions. You can no longer use those unpleasant putty dental impressions as an excuse to avoid getting orthodontic treatment!
In the old days, in order to plan a patient’s orthodontic treatment and to prepare their invisible aligner trays or their clear retainers, we had to take the patient’s dental impression — and it wasn’t a particularly pleasant experience. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, we can now get all the information we need to plan your orthodontic treatment with a quick scan of the inside of your mouth, no dental impressions required.
Unlike certain types of medical scanning equipment, including dental X-rays, the iTero scanner does not have to expose the patient to any radiation in order to do its job. As small as the risk is from the levels of exposure involved with other scanning equipment, with iTero, you don’t have to worry at all about any risks outweighing the benefits.
Digital X-rays are like the digital cameras we have today. They still use X-rays as the standard X-rays; the only difference is that their sensors are connected to a computer and not a film. This enables the modern X-ray to capture clearer and more accurate images as compared to its predecessor. The amount of the radiation is much less in Digital X-Ray compare to traditional X-Rays.
