At Dentistry by Design, we strive to do everything we can to deliver the highest quality care to our patients. Whether that would mean traveling across the country for advanced dental education or seeking out the latest dental innovations, we are always striving to deliver the highest level of quality to our patients.
Our latest office addition is the new iTero® Element™ intraoral scanner. This state-of-the-art tool allows us to take high precision scans of the mouth and instantly renders a three dimensional model of the teeth. Not only is this new iTero® unit compact, it can also take scans at a rate of 6,000 frames per second, which is 20 times faster than its predecessor.
The iTero® Element scanner greatly benefits patients, making your dental treatment a much easier, quicker, and more pleasant experience. There are many advantages of this system:
- Comfort – The ergonomically designed iTero® Element™ wand rests on your teeth while scanning, which means that it does not require the application of powders, gels, or uncomfortable impression devices. Consequently, it leaves your mouth in pristine condition. It is lightweight and there is no discomfort.
- Efficiency – Using the iTero® scanner to create 3D images is time-saving and shortens appointment time. The corrections of impressions are extremely rare and scans can be performed by a single operator. The scan takes three to five minutes.
- Accuracy – Invisalign® patients who are treated with the iTero® Element™ scanner are seven times less likely to have problems with the fit of their aligners, and the ultra-precise digital image means that dental restorations rarely have to be remade (a rate of 0.5%).
