No More Goop, Gagging or Discomfort
Digital. Detailed. Done. The Cadent iTero digital impressions system is dentistry gone 3-D. With iTero, your dentist can take a highly accurate digital impression for your veneer, crown or bridge area, thereby completely eliminating the uncomfortable tray and putty impression. What’s more, iTero technology all but guarantees a perfect fit for your new veneer, crown or bridge, so you spend less time at the dentist’s office and more time enjoying your new smile.
What does the name iTero mean?
iTero is derived from the Latin word itero, meaning “to repeat.” The name reflects the ability of the iTero system to exactly replicate the oral anatomy for superior results, time and time again.
I suffer from anxiety when it comes to dental visits. Should I be concerned about getting an iTero impression?
Not at all. Patient studies show that iTero scans are more comfortable and are completed in less time than the conventional impression method. There is no messy putty that may cause gagging, and therefore, no need to wait for the material to set. The average iTero scan takes just three to five minutes. And, unlike the conventional approach, you and your dentist can rest in the middle of the digital impression process.
Why would my dentist choose an iTero digital impression over the conventional impression method?
In a word: precision! The iTero digital impression is much more accurate than a conventional impression. As a result, adjustments are almost non-existent when it comes to cement your crown or bridge in place.
Is there any exposure to radiation during the iTero digital impression?
No. iTero uses visible light, and you have no exposure to radiation during the digital impression procedure.
