Frequently Asked Questions About iTero
Question: How does iTero work?
Answer: In the past, taking an impression meant biting down on a sticky and poor tasting material and holding it in your mouth for several minutes. However, we can now use an intraoral camera to take a series of detailed digital images. The images can be used to create an incredibly detailed picture of your smile, allowing us to design restorations, perform accurate diagnoses, and create orthodontics.
Question: When do you use digital impressions?
Answer: We use them to design dental restorations, such as inlays, onlays, crowns, or veneers. We can also use them to design oral appliances, such as the kind needed to treat TMJ disorder or bruxism. They allow us to create appliances and trays with precision.
Question: Will this help with Invisalign?
Answer: Invisalign doesn’t use metal brackets and wires. Instead, patients wear a series of clear aligners every day for between 20 and 22 hours. Over a period of about a year to 18 months, they will reposition the teeth. The digital imaging system allows our team to take detailed digital impressions, which are essential in creating the Invisalign aligner trays and ensuring a comfortable fit. We can also the system to create images simulating the results of treatment, allowing patients to see their potential results.
