At Port Hope Dental, Dr. Benedict uses the iTero scanner to take impressions of your teeth for Invisalign, crowns, bridges, nightguards, and other cosmetic dental procedures. The iTero Scanner is an intra-oral digital scanner that allows us to take 3D images of your teeth and bite in real time. Thanks to this advanced technology, we no longer need to use traditional putty molds to take impressions of your teeth. This method is much less messy, and much more efficient!
The iTero technology captures complete tooth images via a wand that gently rests on teeth for easy scanning without discomfort. The 3D digital impressions are loaded into the simulator and the model of the teeth is moved and adjusted based on the scheduled treatment. This way, patients can see in advanced how their smile will look.
